Jaiyesimi pushing for Swindon starting spot

Diallang Jaiyesimi could make his first start for Swindon when they welcome Carlisle to the Energy Check County Ground this weekend.

Jaiyesimi moved to the Robins from Norwich on a season-long loan deal late last week and was given a cameo in their curtain-raiser against Scunthorpe.

However, goals for forward pair Keshi Anderson and Jerry Yates means Jaiyesimi may once again have to settle for a spot on the bench.

Swindon go into the fixture with no new injury or suspension problems.

Carlisle boss Steven Pressley may be tempted to make changes despite watching his side open their campaign with victory over Crawley.

Canice Carroll and Ryan Loft both impressed Pressley after coming off the bench and are pushing for starting places.

However, striker Hallam Hope is unlikely to feature as he continues to battle a lower back injury.

Pressley indicated that Hope is making good progress but the game at Swindon is likely to come too soon.
