Robins head coach Wade Elliott revealed Glen Rea will train for the first time, as well as his thoughts on facing Barnsley tomorrow at the Completely-Suzuki Stadium.
Rea joined Cheltenham on deadline day from Championship side Luton Town, and Elliott confirmed his availability.
"Glen is here and in the building. We'll see how he trains and how he comes through today," said Elliott.
"His quality as a player isn't in question. I've spoken to loads of people about him as a character and from the interactions I've had with him, he's a really good guy."
Tickets are still available for tomorrow's League One clash against Barnsley, including seats in the Colin Farmer Stand sponsored by JM Weston Construction and HGV Drivers UK Stand.
