Bragging rights at stake at Whaddon Road
Cheltenham are sweating on the fitness of Steve Elliott and Marlon Pack for the derby clash against Hereford, but Josh Low comes back into contention.
Centre-back Elliott (ankle) and midfielder Pack (groin) both hobbled out of last weekend`s 1-1 draw at Morecambe.
The pair "have a chance of being fit" according to manager Mark Yates who will hand them fitness tests as late as possible.
Winger Low has trained all week having missed the last three games with a hamstring strain and comes back into Yates` thoughts for the first of six home games in Town`s next seven matches - a crucial period which will almost certainly define their promotion push.
Yates has seen his side flatter to deceive at Whaddon Road this term, losing their last three home games and winning just one of their previous six. And he is hoping for a change of fortunes as Hereford make the short trip to Gloucestershire.
Defender Andy Gallinagh (double hernia operation) is scheduled to resume training in the next two weeks.
Michael Townsend misses out on an emotional return to Whaddon Road.
The Hereford centre-back spent six years with Town, making almost 150 appearances, before being released at the end of last season and subsequently signing a deal with the Bulls.
But his red card for a second bookable offence in Tuesday`s 2-2 draw with Macclesfield means he now serves a one-match suspension.
Young striker Waide Fairhurst is in line for his United debut having completed a month-long loan deal from Doncaster on Thursday afternoon.
Otherwise, manager Jamie Pitman is not expected to have any new injury concerns. He made just one change to face Macclesfield - midfielder Kenny Lunt coming in for striker Jake Jervis - and was satisfied with the overall performance apart from Townsend`s dismissal and Town`s last-gasp equaliser.
On-loan midfielder Harry Pell played the final half-hour and impressed, pushing his claims for a starting berth this time around.
Bulls pick up away win
New boy Wade Fairhurst grabbed two goals on his debut to help a resurgent Hereford pull further clear of the relegation zone with a 3-0 win at Cheltenham.
The striker, on loan from Doncaster, gave the Bulls a 23rd-minute lead with a crisp finish in off the post following a neat lay off by Stuart Fleetwood.
Hereford doubled their advantage in the 51st minute when defender Janos Kovacs climbed to head a Kenny Lunt free kick into an empty net with keeper Scott Brown flailing helplessly in midair.
Fairhurst added a third in the last minute with a clinical finish from eight yards curled into the far corner.
The Robins had the best early chance when keeper Adam Bartlett kept out a near-post header from Wes Thomas.
Harry Pell impressed for the Bulls and drew a flying save from Scott Brown while the midfielder went even closer with a right foot shot that hit the post.
At the other end Wes Thomas spurned a chance from six yards while shortly after Bartlett could only manage to beat out a fiercely struck drive from Marlon Pack.
Bulls midfielder Joe Colbeck also tested Scott Brown late on with a stinging shot from 25 yards.
