It’s derby day on Saturday at the LCI Rail Stadium as Cheltenham Town welcome Swindon Town in Sky Bet League Two (kick-off 3pm).
The Robins are flying high after going four games undefeated in the league, including a first away win since February last time out as they beat Chesterfield.
Swindon have won four of the last six in the league and currently occupy ninth spot in the standings. And they have been particularly impressive on the road, with a solitary defeat to Notts County the only game they have come unstuck.
Cheltenham team news: The Robins will monitor the fitness of midfielder Kevin Dawson, after he missed the away fixture at Chesterfield. Striker Freddie Hinds will also be assessed after a tight hamstring against Forest Green Rovers. Jaanai Gordon and Jordon Forster remain long-term injury casualties.
Swindon team news: First choice goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux will miss the game at the LCI Rail Stadium after being handed a four-game ban. He will be replaced by Reice Charles-Cook. Will Henry, recently called into the England U20 squad will be on the bench. Striker Luke Norris is set to return after a shoulder knock, but full back Chris Hussey will be missing with a groin injury.
The man in the middle:
Merseyside official Robert Jones – who has handed out 28 yellow cards and two red card in 11 games this season - will take charge of the league game at the LCI Rail Stadium. He will be assisted by Andrew Aylott, Thomas Harty and fourth official Brett Huxtable.
