SWINDON TOWN: Pritchard to miss City showdown
ALEX Pritchard will miss this weekend’s League One clash with Bristol City after the Football Association slapped him with a one-game suspension.
The winger has managed to pick up five bookings in just eight appearances for Swindon Town following his loan move from Tottenham in the summer, the most recent being a yellow card in the 3-2 defeat to Wolves at Molineux on Saturday, and his cumulative total is enough to warrant a ban.
Manager Mark Cooper will now have to contend with being without the diminutive wideman, Tijane Reis - who is currently recovering from a knee injury - and the suspended Nathan Byrne for the visit of local rivals City to the County Ground.
Pritchard will return for the arrival of Premier League giants Chelsea in the third round of the League Cup on September 24.
His absence this weekend could open the door for Mohamed El Gabbas to make his Robins debut after the Egyptian forward received international clearance on Friday.
