Skipper Nathan Thompson in contention for Swindon return

Swindon captain Nathan Thompson could return to the starting line-up against Eastleigh as the Robins look to make it two wins on the spin under new director of football Tim Sherwood.

The defender missed Saturday's 3-0 win over Charlton with a hamstring injury but is rated 50/50 for their FA Cup first-round replay on Tuesday.

Striker Jonathan Obika could return to the matchday squad following his recovery from an ankle injury, while James Brophy will undergo fitness tests but is unlikely to feature.

Forward Luke Norris will shake off the knock to his ankle he suffered on Saturday.

Easleigh forward James Constable is suspended after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season against York on Saturday.

But wide man Luke Coulson is available after deciding to miss England C's International Challenge Trophy group match in Estonia on Tuesday.

New signing Ross Stearn is cup-tied having featured for former club Sutton in the previous round.

Eastleigh look to reach second round of the FA Cup for the second successive season.
