Cheltenham will be without the suspended Sido Jombati for the match.

Defender Jombati sits out the final match of a three-game ban after he was dismissed for a foul on Southend's Michael Timlin in the 19th minute of the two sides' meeting at Roots Hall.

Keith Lowe is likely to fill in for Jombati once more, while manager Mark Yates will be buoyed by the return of midfielder Marlon Pack from a ban.

Pack has missed the Robins' last two matches after picking up his 10th yellow card of the season but is expected to return to Yates' starting line-up this weekend.

Otherwise, Cheltenham are injury-free for the encounter as they look to maintain their play-off bid.

Meanwhile, Padraig Amond's return to fitness boosts injury-stricken Accrington's chances.

The Irish striker shook off a back injury to fire the winner in a 2-1 victory over Hereford on Easter Monday.

Bobby Grant was also on target against the Bulls and should continue up front alongside Amond, with Jamie Devitt in support and Kurtis Guthrie providing an alternative option.

Stanley's defensive woes have eased since the return of Toto Nsiala from suspension but Sean Hessey (hamstring), Danny Coid (knee), Dean Winnard and Rob Kiernan (both ankle) are all on the treatment table.

Midfielders Bryan Hughes (hamstring) and Alan Burton (hernia surgery) are sidelined, meaning acting skipper Luke Joyce and Sunderland loanee Michael Liddle should fill in.
