AHEAD of Swindon Town's trip to Crewe Alexandra in League One on Tuesday night, assistant manager Noel Hunt gave updates on several injured players - including the likes of Mathieu Baudry, Jordan Lyden and Hallam Hope.

Hunt on general update: "It's pretty much the same as before Oxford, i think. It was a very, very light session today with people just assessing things, and us making sure everyone was in the building. We won't know too much until Tuesday morning."

Hunt on Hallam Hope: "We don't have a diagnosis yet, but i don't think it's too bad. He's one we're going to have to play by ear and see how it settles down. Hopefully, he'll be back sooner rather than later.

"It was a nasty kick, and you find yourself getting frustrated with officials because they don't see when players are using the dark arts of the game due to the fact they haven't played at this level.

"The challenge on Hallam was a free one for Lincoln because their player didn't get booked for it. Hallam, through his bravery, played on, but at the end of it, it costs us because he misses two or three games over a nasty, nasty tackle."

Hunt on Anthony Grant playing through the pain barrier: "He's a warrior. He's come through some injuries that a lot of people i know wouldn't have played with. It's important people see that in him, that he has gone through the pain barrier on a number of occasions this season, when other people would not play or even think of playing."

Hunt on Dion Conroy: "Dion has been back in training for a week or two now and he looks OK, but it's about getting match sharpness into him now. He's been out for such a long time, so it's about getting him the match time now and fitting him in when we can."

Hunt on Jordan Lyden: "Jordan is back training, but he dipped in and out because he's not quite ready. But he's been in the contact side of it, so it's about making him comfortable with playing at a competitive pace and tempo. It's about getting him as used to that as possible until he goes back in."

Hunt on Zeki Fryers: "Zeki is another few weeks away, i think. He's been back out on the grass again this week. He's ahead of schedule in terms of his injury, he had a decent-size tear in his hip flexor, but he's just finding as he's pushing himself that bit harder now, he might get a few little nicks in different places. So we've got to be careful that we keep him ahead of schedule but make sure he doesn't over-exert himself."

Hunt on Mathieu Baudry: "I'm not too sure at this point. He's being assessed today - whether he goes for a scan or not, i'm not sure. We don't know whether he's in or out tomorrow yet, hopefully not but you never know."

Hunt on Joel Grant: "Joel is being assessed today as well so hopefully that's not too bad. It's more of a knock than a muscle injury, so hopefully he'll be available tomorrow."
