Cheltenham are boosted by the availability of Michael Townsend and Medy Elito for their home clash against play-off hopefuls Bury.

Centre-back Townsend came off towards the end of Easter Monday`s 2-1 win at Crewe having taken a blow to his leg in a collision, while winger Elito failed to make clash at all having failed a fitness test after picking up a calf injury in Saturday`s triumph over Lincoln.

But the duo are both back in contention and are fit to feature as Cheltenham look to record three successive league victories for the first time since January 2008.

However, they will have to do so without the services of on-loan midfielder Aaron Lescott who missed both of the club`s games over Easter with a knee problem.

Two wins should be enough to secure the Robins` Football League status but Bury arrive at the Abbey Business Stadium boosted by Monday`s 3-0 win over Burton, a result which ended an eight-game winless streak.

Bury will be without the suspended Mike Jones.

The midfielder was dismissed for two bookable offences in Monday's home win against Burton and he must now serve out a one-match ban.

Otherwise manager Alan Knill has a full squad to choose from with no new injury concerns.

Forward Keigan Parker is back in training and will be pushing for a recall to the side.

Parker, who is on loan from Oldham, has missed the last two games through an ankle injury but should be back in contention for a starting place.

After a poor run of form Bury will be hoping to build on their win over Burton as they look to maintain their position in the play-offs.
