Duo To Have Surgery

Swindon Town's Paul Smith and Lee Peacock will not play in the last 2 games of the season.

Both players will be heading to the operating table shortly for surgery. Smith on his ankle and Peacock on his knee.

Smith had been instrumental in Swindon's short lived revival earlier in the season but since he took a nasty knock during the Gillingham match at the County Ground where Town won 1-0, he has been trying to rehabilitate his troublesome ankle. Smith made a surprise return at Scunthorpe on Easter Monday but felt soreness almost the second he walked off the pitch. He started on Saturday against Brentford however had to be substituted at half time due to his ankle again. It has now been revealed he will need surgery.

Peacock joined Town from Sheffield Wednesday in January and instantly became a hit with the fans. He took a knock on his knee and knew he needed surgery. Peacock continued playing to help Town get out of relegation. With the club now all but relegated, Peacock will turn his attention to next season and will have surgery and hopes to be able to take Swindon straight back up to League One.
