Swindon Town keeper Lawrence Vigouroux wasn’t risked at the weekend after suffering with a bad dead leg during training last week.

The on-Liverpool youngster – who has racked up 36 appearances for the Robins so far this season – took a heavy knock to his leg in the 2-2 draw with Millwall after colliding with team-mate Nathan Thompson.

Despite lasting the distance against the Lions, Vigouroux found himself hampered by the injury and was unable to train for large parts of the week, prompting Town to put Tyrell Belford between the sticks for the 0-0 draw away at Coventry City on Saturday.

Although the true extent of Vigouroux’s injury is not yet known, it is expected that Belford will keep his place in goal for the visit of Wigan Athletic to SN1 on Good Friday.

“Lawrence clashed with Nathan Thompson in the Millwall game and he just developed a dead leg that got a little bit more serious as the days went on,” Town Head Coach Luke Williams told BBC Wiltshire.

“We felt it could be a problem and it could have been something that got worse during the game and we would have had to make a change and that would have denied us a chance to make a tactical change later in the game.”
