Vincent Pericard will miss Swindon`s crucial home clash against Brentford as he battles to recover from a sore heel to play a part in the final-day showdown at Millwall.

The striker went to see a specialist this week and received an injection which should help the healing process but the problem has still ruled him out for around seven days.

On-loan winger Danny Ward came off after 37 minutes of last weekend`s 2-2 draw at Wycombe nursing a thigh problem but he returned to training towards the end of the week and should be okay.

Midfielder Jon-Paul McGovern and full-back Alan Sheehan have both been receiving treatment for muscle soreness but are fine and will start.

Callum Kennedy is now back to full fitness after a lengthy lay-off but whether he is handed a place among the substitutes remains to be seen.

The Robins are already assured of a top-six finish and still harbour hopes of closing the four-point gap on second-placed Leeds, although every point is important with home advantage in the play-offs up for grabs.

Brentford's baby boom continues to disrupt manager Andy Scott's selection plans.

Right-back Danny Foster should return to the squad after his child was born last week but winger Myles Weston could miss out as his partner is due to give birth.

On-loan wideman Lionel Ainsworth will not figure after angering Scott with his reaction to being substituted against Yeovil last Saturday.

Striker Carl Cort is fit after a foot injury and defender Mark Phillips will be involved again after returning from a knee problem as a substitute at the weekend.

Centre-half Alan Bennett is out with an ankle problem and left-back Ryan Dickson has a hamstring injury.
