Michael Flynn said that Rushian Hepburn-Murphy’s performance against Sutton United has given him something to think about ahead of the visit of Walsall.

After a fast start to the season which saw Hepburn-Murphy get Town’s goal in a 1-1 draw against Peterborough United in the Carabao Cup prior to losing on penalties, the forward suffered an injury set back that saw him forced to spend a period on the sidelines.

However, the ex-Aston Villa youngster was in fine form once again last weekend against Sutton United, coming off the bench to set-ups Dan Kemp’s goal before scoring a magnificent solo effort of his own three minutes from time.

Flynn admitted ahead of Swindon taking on Walsall tomorrow that Hepburn-Murphy’s performance had given him something to think about in terms of team selection.

He said: “He [Hepburn-Murphy] has given me a big headache. He is raring to go, and he looked excellent last week when he came, as did the other boys who played.

“Yes, there was a bit of a blip after we scored the third and had the water break with the two goals that we conceded.

“But in terms of the way we played, with the patterns and the togetherness, I thought all of them had a very decent game.

“And as I have said, I don’t care if we win 1-0 or 9-8 it is just about getting the three points, but I would rather a 1-0, just for the record.”

One player hoping to be involved will be Liam Kinsella, who came through the youth set-up at the Bescot Stadium before playing 212 times for the first team, and could be back in contention after a hamstring problem has kept him out of Town’s last two squads.

Flynn said: “Liam [Kinsella] is in possible contention, we will make a decision on him after today.

“Liam spent a long time at Walsall, he was part of the furniture almost, but this is the way things happen in football as you don’t always get to stay for so long at one club.

“Liam has done that, but has now moved on to pastures new and I am sure he will be fighting to be involved tomorrow.

“Everyone else, bar them [Tom Clayton and Reece Devine] are fine at the minute.

“Clayton is probably four weeks away and Kins [Kinsella] is up for selection, so that puts up back up to a healthy number with the squad.”
