Swindon Town defender Aden Flint has been told he faces the rest of the season on the side-lines.

Flint has been an integral part of the defensive pairing with Alan McCormack however a groin injury will now require surgery according to specialists which will result in the defender being out for three months.

The loss of Flint is a massive blow to Town.

Joe Devera will replace Flint in the heart of defence with Arsenal loanee Daniel Boateng also available. Oliver Risser can also play in defence, although we rather he not.

Town boss Paolo Di Canio has not ruled out diving into the loan market to find reinforcements.
