Kyle Storer nears a return and other injury updates

3 October 2016

Read Gary's thoughts

Club Vice-Captain Kyle Storer has moved closer to a return to first team football this week, taking part in training and also playing a part in two practice matches.

On Saturday he played 40 minutes in an internal academy friendly match, before being involved in a first team practice game this morning.

Cheltenham boss Gary Johnson said, " The good news is that the injured lads are nearer to a return, with Kyle the closest. He could even be involved in some way tomorrow against Everton, although we haven't picked the squad yet."

Storer has not played for the Robins this season, having been suspended at the start of the season before injuring his back just before the suspension ended.

As for other injury news, the Gaffer commented, " James Rowe's rehab is going well and Dan Holman is seeing the specialist for the last time on Thursday, hopefully then he'll get the green light to start training."

Dan hasn't played since the 1-1 draw at Mansfield back in August and has since undergone surgery to remove a piece of floating bone from his toe. He won the National League Golden Boot last season, scoring 30 times across his time with Woking and Cheltenham.

We will have another update for you later in the week.
