Jeff Goulding and Martin Riley are both injury doubts ahead of Cheltenham's game with Burton.

Striker Goulding was substituted in the first-half of the Robins' thrilling 6-4 defeat to Rotherham last week with a groin problem, while defender Riley missed the game with a minor hamstring tear.

The duo are making good progress from their respective injuries, however, a late decision is likely to be taken over whether either player will be available to face the Brewers.

Striker Theo Lewis has returned to training following his mild bout of glandular fever and could be included in the squad.

Cheltenham beat Burton 6-5 last season and though the Abbey Business Stadium outfit were involved in another goalfest last week against Rotherham, manager Mark Yates is confident lightning will not strike for a third time.

"We had a chat, we've worked on things and I'm confident that kind of thing won't happen again," Yates told the club's official website. If things go against us, then we'll respond in a much better way."

Burton boss Paul Peschisolido will be forced to change a winning side.

Albion recorded their first victory of the campaign at home to Morecambe last weekend but it came at a price as Paul Boertien suffered a calf injury.

The full-back was forced off during the first-half and scans have revealed he will need around a month to recover.

Centre-half Tony James could be recalled to deputise at full-back as he did at Barnet earlier this month.

John McGrath, who replaced Boertien against the Shrimps, and fellow midfielders Jimmy Phillips and Jacques Maghoma are also pushing for recalls along with forwards Richard Walker and James Ellison.
