First published in Sport by

LEIGH Bedwell endured the Christmas from hell as he spent several days in hospital.

The Swindon Town goalkeeper was taken ill on Christmas Day with a bowel infection and spent six days in the care of the doctors and nurses at GWH before being discharged on New Year’s Eve.

Town manager Mark Cooper explained: “On Christmas Day we thought he had appendicitis but it wasn’t appendicitis. I’m not quite sure of the term and what was wrong but it was something to do with and infection in his bowel which had to be sorted out.

“I’ve texted him and he's had a rough Christmas. It’s horrible for him.”

I'm sure it's just a wee set back for Leigh and that he will be raring to go for the rest of the season.

No clean sheets for Leigh over Chistmas then . We seem to be getting lot of virus type issues out the Town , I know we had a super clean and put some in inisolation to try to sort it but still appears to be a problem though .
