The Robins left-back has been out for over five weeks with a calf problem while minor injuries sustained in a recent car crash also delayed his rehabilitation.

But he is finally back in contention and will compete with loanee Danny Andrew for a starting place at Dean Court.

On the opposite side of defence, right-back David Pipe has returned to parent club Bristol Rovers leaving manager Mark Yates with a decision as to who will fill the gap. David Bird, Kyle Haynes and Josh Low have all played there in the past.

The postponement of last Saturday's home clash against Darlington also means on-loan defender Ashley Eastham will be chomping at the bit to make his return from suspension.

Winger Marley Watkins (ankle) is back in full training and raring to go while Shane Duff is continuing with his running and some very light ball work as he targets a return to action next month.
