Riley absent for Cheltenham

11 March 2011 11:30
Martin Riley is the only absentee as Cheltenham play host to Aldershot. The central defender has spent this week at Lilleshall strengthening his troublesome hamstring and will continue to miss out against the Shots. But there is positive news regarding Keith Lowe and David Bird who are both back to full fitness and available. Right-back Lowe has missed the last three matches with an ankle injury but returned to training at the start of this week and is back in contention. Midfielder Bird passed a late fitness test on his calf to make the bench for last Saturday`s 3-0 home defeat to leaders Chesterfield but remained an unused substitute. Like Lowe, he has now got a full week`s training under his belt and is raring to go as the Robins meet another team just below them in the table with lingering play-off aspirations.
