Eastham missing for Robins

21 February 2011 02:30
Ashley Eastham will be unavailable for Cheltenham`s home clash with Torquay having been involved in a minor motor accident. The on-loan Blackpool defender, 19, was not injured in the incident which happened ahead of Saturday`s 1-1 draw against Barnet, forcing him to miss out at the weekend. A club spokesman insists Eastham is "completely fine" but he will be excused from duty on Tuesday, with a view to coming back into contention this weekend against Stevenage. Fellow centre-back Andy Gallinagh returned to the bench against Barnet after his double hernia operation and has now fully recovered, although Steve Elliott and Martin Riley are expected to keep their places at the heart of defence. Winger Josh Low (thigh) remains sidelined but will continue to be assessed and could return to be involved against Stevenage. Manager Mark Yates is close to boosting his squad with loan signings and hopes to complete deals in time to face the Gulls, if not then for Saturday.
