Thornhill fitness race for Robins
The on-loan Nottingham Forest midfielder suffered a hamstring strain during Tuesday's heartbreaking last-gasp 1-1 draw against Torquay and was forced off at half-time. Michael Townsend missed the clash altogether due to a groin injury and he is looking at a couple of weeks on the sidelines. Skipper Shane Duff (Achilles) made the bench in what was his first taste of matchday action for six months, although he was an unused substitute as he is still lacking match fitness. And that is again expected to be the case at Sixfields as he continues his steady return with a reserve-team game possibly due to take place next week to aid his recovery.
