Swindon Town complete emergency loan signing of Birmingham City goalkeeper Connal Trueman ahead of Sunderland trip
Swindon Town have completed an emergency loan signing on the eve of their match at Sunderland.
Goalkeeper Connal Trueman has joined on a week-long emergency deal from Championship side Birmingham City
The 24-year-old will wear the number one shirt and is expected to start at the Stadium of Light on Tuesday evening (7pm kick-off).
It’s not the first time Trueman will have played on Wearside this season as he started for AFC Wimbledon in a 1-1 draw against the Black Cats back in December. He made 22 appearances in total for The Dons during the first half of the 2020-21 campaign.
It’s the second time Swindon have had to dip into the emergency loan market since the end of the transfer window following a knee injury to their previous emergency goalkeeper Joe Wollacott.
Teenage stopper Archie Matthews was handed his debut for Swindon’s 2-1 win over Northampton Town before The Robins had the chance to bring in reinforcements.
