The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Jack Miller

SWIN­DON de­fender Dion Conroy is con­vinced his cen­tre-back part­ner­ship with skip­per Olly Lan­cashire can flour­ish in the com­ing weeks.

The 21-year-old for­mer Chelsea star­let has been in and out of the Robins’ start­ing line-up this sea­son as he com­petes with vet­eran Chris Robert­son, 31, for a start­ing berth.

But, hav­ing adapted to the rigours of League Two, Conroy reck­ons he and Lan­cashire, 28, have the po­ten­tial to thrive in each other’s com­pany.

He said: “For cer­tain play­ers, it might take a cou­ple of weeks and for some it might only take a train­ing ses­sion. I have al­ready clicked with him.

“I’m learn­ing off ev­ery­thing he does and ev­ery­thing he tells me.

“You need to play well to keep your spot. It keeps ev­ery­one on their toes in train­ing and I think it is a good thing. I’ve al­ways had that pres­sure.

“League Two is a lot more di­rect, more phys­i­cal but that is the only dif­fer­ence be­tween that and League One.”
