Cheltenham's defensive options for the visit of AFC Wimbledon are set to be boosted by the return of centre-back Troy Brown.

The summer signing from Aldershot returned to full training on Tuesday having been missing since he suffered a hamstring tear against Accrington in August.

Unless Brown suffers a reaction in the build-up he will be competing with Steve Elliott and James Wilson for a starting place in a backline that has shipped 27 goals in just 11 games.

Left-back Craig Braham-Barrett (ankle) remains the only player in the Cheltenham treatment room with Jamie Cureton fit again after suffering from a dislocated shoulder and calf strain.

Will Antwi is closing in on a return to action for AFC Wimbledon ahead of the trip to Cheltenham.

The centre-half has yet to feature this season due to a hip injury but is back in training, although he is likely to play for the reserves next week before being considered for the first team.

Kevin Sainte-Luce is also due back in training after a hamstring problem but Saturday's clash will probably come too soon for him as well.

Fellow wingers George Porter and Chris Arthur are pushing for starts after their introduction as half-time substitutes helped the Dons come from a goal down to beat Burton 3-1 last weekend.
