Robins high after Low return
Josh Low is back in contention as Cheltenham host Accrington looking to regain a play-off place.
The winger last featured in the disappointing 2-0 home defeat to Southend in mid-December when he sustained a hamstring injury, but Low has trained all week and been passed fit to face Stanley.
However, manager Mark Yates admits he may not come straight back into his starting XI.
Defender Andy Gallinagh is unlikely to feature as he struggles with a troublesome groin injury which is expected to keep him out for the immediate future, joining fellow centre-back Martin Riley (hamstring) on the sidelines.
But he would most likely have found himself on the bench in any case with Ashley Eastham partnering Steve Elliott at the heart of defence for last weekend`s 1-1 draw at Northampton, a positive result which did however see the Robins slip out of the top seven on goal difference.
Accrington will face a nervous wait to see if they can include Kevin Long in their side.
The on-loan Burnley defender has made 11 appearances for Stanley since joining in October but his stay at the Crown Ground has expired.
Assistant manager Jimmy Bell said: "We're still waiting on whether we can keep him until the end of the season."
Winger Chris Turner could be in contention after resuming full training following damage to his ankle.
Defender Sean Hessey and midfielder Luke Joyce were on the bench for the 1-0 victory over Bury and will be in contention to start. Defender Leam Richardson made an appearance as a substitute and will also be targeting a place in the XI.
Defender Joe Jacobson celebrated the extension of his loan from Oldham by scoring the winning goal against the Shakers and should retain his place.M
Richardson seals it for Stanley
Super sub Leam Richardson smashed in a last-minute winner to give Accrington a deserved 2-1 victory at Cheltenham.
The midfielder's left-footed volley killed off a late comeback by a lacklustre Cheltenham who had equalised through top scorer Wes Thomas in the 83rd minute.
Terry Gornell fired the visitors ahead in the 39th minute with a close-range effort through the legs of goalkeeper Scott Brown.
His eighth goal of the season stemmed from good play down the right by Jimmy Ryan and Charlie Barnett who combined to tee up Gornell.
Accrington had signalled their attacking intentions right from the off when Ryan attempted to score straight from the kick off, his ambitious strike just off target.
Cheltenham created little but grabbed a lifeline with a brilliant turn and strike from Thomas who bagged his 13th goal of the season.
He came close to a winner a minute later with a looping header just wide as keeper Ian Dunbavin floundered.
In the first half Stanley were twice denied goals by last ditch Cheltenham defending with Danny Andrew and JJ Melligan blocking Kevin Long and Andy Proctor's goalbound efforts.
