Swindon Town's Alan Navarro out for a month with knee injury

Alan Navarro

Swindon Town midfielder Alan Navarro has been ruled out for at least a month with a medial ligament injury.

The 31-year-old was carried off on a stretcher in the final minute of their 2-2 draw with Coventry on Saturday.

It was feared Navarro had suffered a recurrence of the cruciate injury that sidelined him for eight months during his spell at Brighton.

But he confirmed on Twitter: "Good news is it's not my cruciate again. Bad news is it's my medial ligament."

Navarro has now travelled to Italy to receive treatment.

The news of Navarro's absence comes a week after striker Andy Williams was ruled out for a month with a calf injury.

Swindon are currently under a Football League transfer embargo after they exceeded the set wage and fee limit.
