Swindon Town winger Lloyd Macklin has been ruled out for at least a month after breaking his leg.

Macklin is a graduate of the youth system at the County Ground and has played nine times for the first-team this season.

The club have confirmed he has fractured his left leg and will now be out for at least a month, but he could be sidelined for up to six weeks.

"It's unfortunate for Lloyd. We are not sure whether it was sustained in training or at Brentford, but it's a blow for him and for the club," said boss Danny Wilson.

"It's disappointing because he was starting to contribute to the squad but we will get him through it as quickly as possible."
