Swindon Town striker Marc Richards looks set to miss the start of the season after suffering a shoulder injury in a pre-season friendly.

The 36-year-old scored 11 goals in 20 games last term after joining the League Two club in January.

"I think he's going to be out for a couple of months minimum," boss Phil Brown told the club website.

"He hasn't dislocated his shoulder but he's ruptured the ligaments in his shoulder."

Swindon start the 2018-19 season with a home game against promoted Macclesfield Town on 4 August.

Meanwhile, the Robins have appointed former MK Dons, Leyton Orient and Portsmouth defender Ben Chorley as chief scout.
