Swindon captain Gordon Greer is battling to be fit for the visit of Stockport.

The central defender went off in the closing stages of Saturday`s 2-0 win over Carlisle having gone over on his ankle but the swelling has reduced and Greer himself is hoping to be available.

On-loan defender Alan Sheehan came through the victory okay on his return from a hamstring injury and he should be fine to continue as the Wiltshire outfit look to extend their 11-match unbeaten run and close the gap on fourth-placed Charlton.

Fellow loanee Simon Ferry was withdrawn shortly after the interval due to illness but he has recovered and will be pushing to retain his starting place.

Matt Ritchie is still longing for his first piece of action in a Robins shirt since arriving on loan from Portsmouth, while winger Lloyd Macklin is unavailable once again having joined Torquay on a month-long deal.

Stockport manager Gary Ablett has no fresh concerns.

Crisis-torn County, who remain in administration, ended their four-month wait for a league victory on Saturday after beating Exeter 1-0 at St James` Park.

A goal from on-loan MK Dons forward Jemal Johnson ended the club`s 17-match run without a league victory and breathed new life into their bid to avoid the drop.

Ablett has no new injury concerns with only long-term absentees Gianluca Havern and Matty Mainwaring missing due to injury.

The former Liverpool defender was boosted by the return of midfielder David Perkins to the side at the weekend and he will again line up in the middle of the park.
