Swindon Town manager Mark Cooper has joked he does not even have enough players for five-a-side in training.

Cooper revealed Jermaine Hylton and Jon Obika are his latest injury absentees.

Asked whether he could field a mini-match in training, Cooper told BBC Wiltshire: "It's two-a-side."

He added: "It's difficult to get any tempo in training. We don't want any more, but we cannot keep crying about it. We have to get on with it and try and get a team on the field."

Earlier in the week Louis Thompson was ruled out with a knee injury.

Nathan Thompson, Jordan Turnbull, Bradley Barry, Wes Thomas, Jordan Williams, Kevin Stewart, Fabien Robert, Raphael Branco and Yaser Kasim are all either suspended or injury doubts for Swindon, who are currently 19th in League One.

However, Cooper says Jordan Stewart, who returned to the County Ground a fortnight after leaving the club because of homesickness, may be involved on Saturday against Millwall.
