Cheltenham's preparations have been given an injury boost with the news that winger Kaid Mohamed is available again.
The 28-year-old Welshman missed Saturday's 1-0 win over Barnet through injury but is set to return while on-loan midfielder Lawson D'Ath has also been given the green light to feature.
The Reading man has been back in training this week after recovering from a knee problem that he picked up during their 3-0 victory over Yate Town in the first round of the competition. The 19-year-old had to be taken off at half-time and has missed the Robins' last five games.
Fellow Reading loanee Jake Taylor has been cleared to play in the competition but defender Sido Jombati is still ruled out after a hernia operation.
Cheltenham have not beaten Hereford in the last nine meetings between the two clubs, a run that stretches back to February 1999.
