Yaser Kasim back in contention for Swindon

Yaser Kasim could make his comeback for Swindon when they welcome Fleetwood in Sky Bet League One.

The midfielder has been out for two months due to an ankle injury but is expected to start the game on the bench after rejoining training last week.

Nathan Thompson (hamstring) and Jamie Sendles-White (cruciate ligament damage) remain on the sidelines.

Manager Luke Williams has no fresh injury or suspension concerns.

Fleetwood have been stretched further after two more players picked up injuries in midweek.

Captain Nathan Pond landed awkwardly in the FA Cup replay with Shrewsbury, a game that also saw Jack Sowerby suffer a strain in the thigh and hamstring area.

Cod Army boss Uwe Rosler said the injury situation was "critical now" having already been without Kyle Dempsey (leg), Jimmy Ryan (foot), Michael Duckworth (groin), Martyn Woolford (knee) and Ashley Eastham (jaw).

It means that Aaron-Amadi Holloway, whose half-time introduction against the Shrews turned the game in Fleetwood's favour, may be in line for his first league start of the year.
