Westley to assess duo ahead of Robins visit

Next Story

Stevenage boss Graham Westley will check on the fitness of both Craig Reid and Peter Winn ahead of the home clash with Cheltenham.

Striker Reid and winger Winn sustained unspecified injuries during the second half of Tuesday night's 3-1 win over Port Vale and had to be replaced.

However, Westley will be hoping both players will be fit enough to retain their places, but Byron Harrison is on standby to replace Reid if necessary.

Ben May and Stacy Long will could stand in for Winn if he fails to recover in time.

Elsewhere, striker Luke Daley has completed his loan spell and returned to parent club Norwich, while midfielder Darren Murphy is not yet ready to return from an ongoing shoulder problem.

New signings Medy Elito and Jake Thomson are in Cheltenham`s squad having completed the paperwork on their loan moves on Friday.

Elito has joined from Colchester until the end of the season while fellow winger Thomson has switched from Exeter on an initial one-month deal, both will immediately be pushing for starting berths at Broadhall Way.

Right-back Keith Lowe is set to miss out having been withdrawn midway through the first half of Tuesday`s last-gasp 2-2 draw with Torquay due to strained ankle ligaments, although he is not expected to miss out long-term.

David Bird is likely to start at full-back having performed well when slotting in from midfield against the Gulls.

Winger Josh Low (thigh) will undergo a late fitness test as he bids to make his return.

On-loan centre-back Ashley Eastham trained on Thursday and is back in the fold having missed the last two games due to his involvement in a minor motor accident.
