Exeter striker John O'Flynn is an injury doubt for their must-win clash with the Robins.

The former Barnet forward had to be substituted at half-time of their 2-2 draw with AFC Wimbledon on Saturday with a foot injury and the medical staff are nursing the Irishman ahead of kick-off.

Young striker Jamie Reid will hope to keep his place in the starting line-up after two goals on his first start for the club earned the Grecians a point against the Dons.

Another positive from that display was the return of Alan Gow for the first time since rupturing ankle ligaments back in February. The Scot is expected to be on the bench once more as he builds his match fitness.

Matt Oakley (shoulder) and Liam Sercombe (ankle) remain sidelined for the Grecians while Kevin Amankwaah had surgery on his ankle this week.

City, who have never beaten the Robins in their seven meetings, are a point off the play-off places and know that anything other than maximum points could see them miss out.

Cheltenham goalkeeper Scott Brown will be fit to line up against the Grecians as the Robins look to continue their automatic promotion push.

The shot stopper received special praise from manager Mark Yates after he played through the pain of a foot injury to keep a clean sheet in the 1-0 win against Gillingham last Saturday.

And the long-serving keeper trained with his team-mates on Thursday and is not a worry for Yates ahead of the trip to Devon.

Meanwhile, on-loan striker Paul Benson is progressing well from his ankle ligament sprain but the clash with the Grecians looks to have come a little too soon for the former Charlton striker.

Cheltenham make the trip two points behind third-placed Rotherham in League Two with two games remaining.

What Is It That FIFA Actually Do?

That's the question raised timidly by someone sat at the back of the room, whilst others remind that UEFA aren't perfect either. Plus a few more gone on to better XIs...

Time To Step Up, Mr Platini...

UEFA should step up and extend the Euros to replace FIFA's tarnished World Cup, say a couple of mailboxers. Also: all hail Carlo, King of the Kop, and plenty more Budget XIs...
