Doctor's have confirmed that Sebastien Alden has sustained a fractured collar bone after his fall in Monday's meeting at Coventry and will therefore miss the remainder of the 2008 campaign.

The youngster flew back to Sweden on Tuesday after doctors confirmed a fracture and also a chip to his collar bone. Alden fell heavily in heat eight at Brandon on Monday night when challenging for the lead. The injury means the Swede won't be fit to participate in Swindon's upcoming play off matches.

Robins' team boss Alun Rossiter was naturally dissapointed by the news:

'Once again, Seb has endured yet more misforutne and i feel desperately sorry for him. He has now returned home to Sweden where he will spend time resting and recovering from this latest set back.

Seb was showing great speed at Coventry and looked strong in the reserve department for us. We wish him well with his recovery and hope to see him back soon'

After successfully recovering from a thumb injury, Cory Gathercole now slots back into Swindon's number eight berth.

The Australian was temporarily replaced by Joel Parsons because of a nasty thumb injury he sustained whilst riding for the Isle of Wight. However with Gathercole now fully fit again, the flamboyant youngster will assume the number eight role for the final few weeks of the 2009 campaign.

Alun Rossiter has confirmed that Swindon intend to use Cory Gathercole and Richard Sweetman to fill the Robins' reserve berth for Monday's play off semi-final.

With Sebastien Alden and Manuel Hauzinger sidelined with injury, Swindon are expected to field club number eight Cory Gathercole along with Richard Sweetman.

Rossiter explains the decision:

'At this late stage in the season it would be virtually impossible to try and sign a new rider. Both Cory and Richard have a huge part to play in Swindon's future and I have faith that then can do a decent job for us.

There seems little point tracking an unknown rider when both Cory and Richard have conributed solid performances for us when called upon in the past. They are Swindon riders, they deserve a chance and i think they will do well at whatever track we end up riding.'
