QUARTET BANNED FOR GILLS
Gillingham will be without four players due to suspension for their trip to Cheltenham but the club's crippling injury problems have eased somewhat.
Danny Spiller was sent off late on in last weekend's 4-3 defeat to Crewe, meaning he now misses the next three games, while Charlie Lee and Lewis Montrose were shown their 15th and 10th bookings of the season respectively.
Lee will also now serve an enforced three-match ban and Montrose two, while Joe Martin completes the third and final game of his suspension at Whaddon Road.
However, defenders Andy Frampton and Matt Fish (both ankle) are available after getting vital minutes under their belts for the club's reserves in midweek.
As are Danny Kedwell, Jack Evans, Simon King and Jack Payne having suffered no ill-effects upon their respective returns against the Alex, while midfielder Jordan Obita has also regained full health after a bout of tonsillitis.
Yet the likes of Garry Richards, Jo Kuffour, Curtis Weston, Adam Birchall (knee) and Gavin Tomlin (hamstring) remain sidelined.
Cheltenham boss Mark Yates has a full squad to select from as he bids to get his team's automatic promotion charge back on track.
The Robins have slipped to fifth in the npower League Two table due to a three-game winless streak, which has included two defeats, in what has proved to be a dismal month so far.
One player who is likely to be welcomed back into the fold is left-back Luke Garbutt.
Yates dropped Garbutt to the bench in the 1-0 defeat to Swindon on Saturday, electing to utilise the physical presence of Sido Jombati to combat the threat of League Two Player of the Year Matt Ritchie.
Garbutt's inclusion would see Jombati switch to a more central berth, possibly at the expense of Steve Elliott.
