Cheltenham striker Jimmy Spencer will not feature against his former club Morecambe after picking up a red card in the derby victory over Swindon.

Spencer is a loanee at the Abbey Business Stadium from Huddersfield and has started every game for the Robins so far.

The teenage forward spent last season on loan with the Shrimps and will miss out on the chance to feature against them after his dismissal on Saturday for elbowing Aden Flint.

Cheltenham manager Mark Yates has no fresh injury concerns although Andy Gallinagh is still believed to be a week away from competitive action.

"We're not taking anything for granted against Morecambe because we know it is going to be a tough game," Yates told the Robins' official website.

Morecambe boss Jim Bentley is hoping that midfielders Garry Hunter and Andy Fleming will be fit to play.

Both players were missing during Saturday's 3-0 win at Hereford, with Hunter picking up a heel injury in training and Fleming still feeling the effects of an ankle injury.

If both players are passed fit, Bentley will have to decide whether to stick with a winning side or alter his formation.

Paul Scott remains the only long-term absentee as the Shrimps bid to maintain the form which saw them win at Barnsley in the Carling Cup and beat the Bulls.

Bentley said: "We have scored five goals and have kept two clean sheets but I still think we can play better."
