Match Preview

Robins return for Riley Martin Riley is expected to be back in contention for Cheltenham when they host Gillingham on Sunday. The central defender has not played for a month due to his troublesome hamstring problem but is finally back in the first-team fold having returned to full training last week. Riley`s return means manager Mark Yates has a full-strength squad to select from for the encounter. On-loan winger Jake Thomson has returned to Exeter following the end of his month-long spell at Whaddon Road and will therefore not be available. Cheltenham went down 2-1 to Gillingham`s promotion rivals Torquay in midweek, with Yates naming the same XI who triumphed 3-2 at Bury last weekend. And the Robins will be looking for his side to improve on their uninspiring home form - having won just one of their previous nine - when they host Andy Hessenthaler`s outfit. Danny Spiller is back in the Gillingham squad. The midfielder has been on the sidelines since January with a broken finger but came through 75 minutes of a reserve match in midweek to prove his fitness. Defender Danny Jackman is back in full training after an ankle injury and could also be involved. Centre-half Josh Gowling will need a late check on a dead leg while striker Dennis Oli was suffering with a stomach bug in midweek but should be available. Defender Tony Sinclair has had an injection in a bid to speed up his recovery from an ankle injury but he will not be fit in time to travel.

Match Report

Cody double stuns Robins Cody McDonald scored twice in the last four minutes as Gillingham came from behind to beat Cheltenham 2-1. Cheltenham took the lead after just three minutes when defender Steve Elliott tucked in Danny Andrew's cross for his first goal for the club. They held onto that advantage for 83 minutes until McDonald headed Barry Fuller's cross onto the bar and nodded the rebound into an empty net. And with less than a minute remaining the striker took his tally for the season to 22 when he headed home Adebayo Akinfenwa's right-wing cross. The Gills climbed up to sixth in the table and lie just two points outside the automatic promotion places.
