The Robins' newest signing Nile Ranger looks set to be involved in Mark Cooper's first game as permanent manager this weekend.

The former Peterborough boss was appointed as the full-time replacement for Kevin MacDonald this week and he has spoken of what a danger the ex-Newcastle striker will be when he is fully fit.

Winger Tijane Reis missed the defeat to Shrewsbury last weekend due to a knee injury and Town are assessing the extent of the damage.

Darren Ward will be involved once again having signed a new two-year deal to stay at The County Ground this week.

Martin Allen could well be tempted to keep faith with an unchanged line-up for Gillingham's trip South West.

Allen watched his side claim their first point of the season at home to promotion favourites Brentford last weekend and it would have been all three had it not been for an equaliser in the fifth minute of injury time from the visitors.

Chris Whelpdale and Adebayo Akinfenwa were brought in to Allen's XI to face the Bees following a 4-0 defeat at Wolves and the pair will be looking to retain their places.

Midfielder Amine Linganzi (hamstring) is again doubtful to feature while right-back Matt Fish has started out on his long road to recovery having undergone knee surgery last week.
