Alan Navarro: Nursing an ankle injury

Team news for Tuesday's League One clash between Swindon and Bury at the County Ground.

Swindon are sweating on the fitness of midfielders Alan Navarro and Simon Ferry for the visit of the Shakers.

Both are suffering from ankle injuries and will be assessed ahead of the clash.

The Robins, who will again be managed by senior players Tommy Miller and Darren Ward, will also be without left-back Joe Devera as he closes in on a return to fitness.

Meanwhile, Luke Rooney is set to be involved again having come back in from the cold after five months out of the first team picture.

The 30-year-old has not made a senior appearance for the club since September and instead spent loan spells at Burton and Rotherham, but he was an unused substitute in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Preston.

Swindon currently sit in second place in League One having gone 13 games unbeaten, a run that stretches back to late November.

Stephane Zubar is a major injury doubt for Bury.

On-loan Bournemouth centre-back Zubar sustained a knee problem against Notts County on Friday and is awaiting the results of a Monday afternoon scan.

The 26-year-old departed at half-time and his absence was keenly felt as the Shakers' saw a 1-0 advantage spiral into a 4-1 defeat, a third consecutive loss that leaves Kevin Blackwell's side eight point from safety having won only once in their past 14 league matches.

To make matters worse, Blackwell is operating under a transfer embargo for the second time since taking charge at Gigg Lane last September.

He told BBC Radio Manchester: "It's just been a catalogue of poor decisions that have been made that have left the club where it is. You're then having to try and solve it all the time. It makes it difficult.

"We've got what we've got now - we can't change anything with players. Unless someone comes in and gives us the money and gets us out of the embargo, we can't do anything there."

Defenders Phil Picken (knee) and Adam Lockwood (groin) remain on the sidelines along with midfielder Shane Byrne (blood disorder).
