3pm Kick Off
Swindon Town make the trip to the south coast tomorrow to take on playoff chasers Brighton & Hove Albion at the Withdean Stadium.
'It gives us a problems. Robbo is a player who can play in a few different positions. I will be looking for players that can play where he can play. We have to make sure we have cover.
'Ideally we will get someone similar to Robbo who can play in a few positions but they are not easy to get. So maybe we will have to get someone who can play just one position.'
Town boss Maurice Malpas on Christian Roberts' injury
Brighton currently sit 9th in League One and only 3 points off the playoffs. Therry Racon who joined from Championship side Charlton Athletic this week will make his Albion debut. Racon will play for the injured Adam El-Abd. Defender Andrew Whing is ruled out of the game due to suspension.
The Brighton number 9 has had a good season so far and scored 14 goals so far in all competitions. Forster scored for Brighton in The Seagulls 3-0 win over Swindon earlier in the season.
Christian Roberts is out for the season due to a knee injury. Lee Peacock serves the last game of a 3 game suspension whilst Billy Paynter will is available after serving a 2 game suspension. Barry Corr could return to the bench. Chris Allen and Michael Pook could return from injury.
Timlin had a fantastic game when he returned to Swindon from Fulham last week. Town played some attractive stuff last week thanks to Timlin
Swindon Town lost 3-0 to Brighton at the County Ground in December with Nicky Forster, Jake Robinson and Dean Hammond netting for The Seagulls
Brighton & Hove Albion are pushing for the playoffs and have a good run of promotions over the last few seasons, being at Brighton being at home this will be a difficult game for Swindon. We will say a 1-1 draw.
Swindon Town V Southend United Monday 24 March 2008, 3pm kick off at the County Ground.
