The experienced 15-goal striker Swindon Town seriously need in League Two next season

Published

What a terrible year for Swindon Town.

Play-off contenders in two of the last four seasons, the Robins have had a dramatic fall from grace.

Back in League Two, manager Luke Williams and sporting director Tim Sherwood have a mammoth task on their hands.

All the way back in 1994, Swindon were a Premier League team, and a number of former Premier League sides have struggled to escape the basement division.

Swindon do have form, in this however.

Having been relegated to the bottom tier twice, the side from the County Ground have bounced back in both of their seasons in the bottom league.

Many faces will come and go over the summer, and Williams must put a squad together capable of challenging for promotion.

The Robins have one of the worst attacking records in the league this season, and this form has massively contributed to their league position.

The team from Wiltshire will have to add goals to their side next season, and this forward could be the man to fire them to the title.

Chris Porter is an extremely experienced striker, and a cool head upfront is exactly what Swindon need.

Porter has proven himself in the division, and has struck 15 league goals for his Colchester side this year thus far, whilst registering a further six assists.

The 6 ft 1 striker is set to be a free agent this summer, and although Colchester are considering the offer of a new contract, no deal is currently in place.

Williams should move for the player before anything is agreed, as the 35 year old would be guaranteed not only a performer on the pitch, but an influential figure off it.

Swindon need experience and players that know the division, and Porter fits the bill nicely.
