Cheltenham could be without Steve Elliott when they host Southend.

The experienced 35-year-old defender missed the 1-0 away win at Hartlepool last Saturday having picked up an ankle problem in their loss to Scunthorpe.

Wolves loanee Michael Ihiekwe shook off his tonsillitis to start in Elliott's place and could get the nod again at the heart of the Robins defence while Jermaine McGlashan looks set to start either on the wing or upfront after his winner at Victoria Park.

The Robins head into this match looking for just their sixth home League Two win this season at the Abbey Business Stadium.

Southend welcome striker Barry Corr back as they aim to consolidate their play-off place at Cheltenham.

Corr has served a three-match ban for his red card in the goalless draw with Bury but he may have to be content with a place on the bench.

Shrimpers boss Phil Brown has gone with Jamar Loza and Lee Barnard as his front pair in the last two games but Freddy Eastwood came off the bench to score the winner against Torquay last weekend to leave Brown with a selection headache.

On-loan Norwich winger Jacob Murphy could make his full debut, while defender Adam Thompson is fit again after his calf problem.
