SWINDON TOWN: Town deep clean to kill off virus
SWINDON Town’s changing rooms have been given a deep clean this week to prevent a virus from making its way around the Robins’ squad.
Following goalkeeper Wes Foderingham’s late withdrawal from the Town side which faced Plymouth on Tuesday night due to illness a handful of other players have suffered from symptoms of the stomach bug, and the club moved to decontaminate the facilities at their Liddington training ground on Thursday morning to stop it spreading any further.
First team coach Luke Williams is now satisfied the problem has been brought under control.
He said: “Wes is okay. We’ve had a couple of other players not feeling too good but fortunately for us they’re not players who are likely to feature so we thought we got away with it.
“We’ve tried to separate the players we thought were sick but obviously you can never totally separate players because they change in the same areas and so on.
“It’s a bit unfortunate with Wes but hopefully we’ve nipped it in the bud. We’ve had the shower and changing areas at the training ground treated early this morning, to have it thoroughly cleaned in case there is something there and we could potentially lose three or four players and that would be a disaster for us.
“It’s a concern for us and that’s why we made sure we got Wes away as soon as he told us he felt awful. There was no way he could play and he was feeling worse by the minute, and we quickly got him out and put him in the medical room and kept him away from everybody.”
