No new problems for "emotional" Di Canio
Swindon manager Paolo Di Canio has no new injury worries ahead of his side`s game against Gillingham.
Goalkeeper Phil Smith (ankle) and midfielder Abdul Said (leg) are still on the treatment table.
Mehdi Kerrouche replaced West Ham-loanee Cristian Montano at half-time in the 1-0 win over Plymouth and will be pushing for a start up front.
The Robins are within a point of the npower League Two play-off positions following four wins in six games.
Di Canio`s father died recently and the players were quick to celebrate Raffaele De Vita`s winner over the Pilgrims with their boss.
"I`m full of emotion obviously because it was a tough week but obviously the lads were amazing. I will never forget what they did and I thank them for the rest of my life," the Italian told Sky Sports News.
Gillingham will be without suspended duo Lewis Montrose and Joe Martin.
Midfielder Montrose scored the winner in Saturday's 1-0 victory over Oxford, before being dismissed for a late challenge on Asa Hall.
Defender Martin also saw red after picking up two yellow cards and will sit out the visit to the County Ground.
Gills boss Andy Hessenthaler has therefore received a timely boost with the return to full fitness of three first-team players.
Midfielders Danny Jackman and Charlie Lee made second-half substitute appearances against the Us after injury, with captain Chris Whelpdale completing over an hour at Priestfield after recovering from a calf problem.
Hessenthaler has selection concerns in attack though, with Danny Kedwell (toe), Dennis Oli (hamstring) and Adam Birchall (knee) all sidelined. Defender Barry Fuller (knee) and midfielder Danny Spiller (ankle) remain unavailable.
Robins leave it late against Gills
Two late strikes gave Swindon a 2-0 victory over Gillingham.
A 30-yard effort from Matt Ritchie in the 80th minute and another from Jonathan Smith in added time made sure of the points for the hosts, who extended their winning run to three League Two games.
The teams were level at half time with few scares in either goalmouth, as both goalkeepers were forced into only routine saves. Wes Foderingham, the Swindon keeper, palmed a cross into the path of Gills striker Jo Kuffour in the 30th minute, a chance which the former Bristol Rovers man he should have netted, but Robins defender Alan McCormack reacted brilliantly to block the striker's effort.
For Swindon, Ritchie produced a good low strike early on, but apart from that there was little to cause any alarm in the visitors' defence.
After the break both sides were guilty of misplaced passes, but Luke Rooney was unlucky to see his low drive rebound off a post in the 65th minute, the ball bouncing along the goal-line to safety.
Ritchie's strike came from nothing 30 yards out with 10 minutes remaining, and Smith rounded off the win with second left. Gillingham will think themselves unlucky not to have at least shared the points.
"Are Chelsea right to bring back Jose Mourinho?"
