Elvis closing in on Robins comeback
Hammond has returned to light training this week having missed the last three games with an ankle injury and is battling to make the clash at Gigg Lane. He looked lively over the opening five games, finding the net three times, and his return would provide a welcome boost to Robins boss Martin Allen. Captain Shane Duff continues to miss out with a calf problem that is expected to keep him on the sidelines for three to four weeks, while midfielders Michael Pook and Oliver Bozanic are making progress with their rehabilitation from knee injuries but neither will face the Shakers. Winger David Hutton (calf) and defender Drissa Diallo (fatigue) recovered in time to take part in last weekend's 1-1 draw at home to Dagenham and both will be okay again this time around. Loan signing Sam Cox is still waiting to make his debut for the club.
