Cheltenham boast almost a fully-fit squad for their fourth meeting with Torquay this season.

Captain Shane Duff is the only player currently unavailable to manager Mark Yates as he nears the end of his lengthy recovery from an Achilles injury.

The central defender last played for the Robins in the 5-4 reversal against Bradford back in late August but is hoping to take part in a reserve match within the next week or so.

Otherwise, Yates has no injury or suspension problems to contend with as he looks to record back-to-back wins for the Gloucestershire club for the first time since last April.

Saturday`s 2-0 victory over play-off hopefuls Morecambe will have given the Robins a much-needed shot in the arm as they look to scramble away from the bottom two.

But Cheltenham will have to improve their record against a Torquay side who have already beaten them 3-0 in the reverse fixture at Plainmoor, 3-1 in the FA Cup and 3-1 in the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy.

Torquay are hoping to welcome back on-loan Tottenham defender Adam Smith.

Full-back Smith - who has started on the right and left for Torquay - was ruled out of Friday's 1-1 draw at fifth placed Rotherham United by illness but is expected to return to contention.

United boss Paul Buckle will wait on the fitness of left back Mo Camara, substituted at half time at Rotherham. Camara's place went to debutant Lathaniel Rowe-Turner, a recent signing from Leicester.

Keeper Michael Poke (groin) missed out at Rotherham, where his place went to Scott Bevan. Both will vie for the keeper's jersey should Poke pass fit tomorrow.

Central defender Kieran Charnock (knee) is set to be ruled out.
