Bird has been sidelined for the last three games with a calf injury sustained in the goalless draw at Rotherham and is unlikely to be risked for the last game.

Defender Shane Duff will undergo a late fitness test as he looks to recover from the sore calves that have dogged him of late after his comeback from a lengthy period out injured.

But other than that, manager Mark Yates will have a full-strength squad at his disposal as the Robins look to pick up the point they need to mathematically guarantee survival.

Cheltenham will only be relegated if they lose and Grimsby (away to Burton) and Barnet (home to Rochdale) both win, with the Mariners also needing to reverse a six-goal swing in the process.
