Aldershot Town Vs Cheltenham Town, Sat 3 Sep 2011

Published Add your comment

Dean Holdsworth has a fully-fit Aldershot squad at his disposal for the visit of Cheltenham.

The Shots have not won in the league since beating Bradford on the opening weekend but they are unbeaten in the last three games as they negotiated West Ham and Carlisle in the Carling Cup.

Anthony Straker will be the only absentee as he serves a suspension following a red card received against Oxford.

That means Jordan Brown, a deadline-day signing on loan from West Ham, is likely to slot straight into the vacated left-back position for his debut against the Robins.

Cheltenham have the luxury of a fully-fit squad for the trip.

Long-serving defender Andy Gallinagh is back in training following the calf strain that ruled him out of the opening weeks of the season, though the right-back may have to settle for a place on the bench.

Striker James Spencer returned from suspension to score on Tuesday and should retain a starting berth.

Mark Yates rang the changes for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy victory against Torquay in order to give his squad players some game time, though he is likely to name a more experienced starting XI at the Recreation Ground.

However, youngsters Harry Hooman and Bagasan Graham could feature after impressing against the Gulls.
