Cheltenham captain Shane Duff has been dealt another injury blow and faces three to four weeks on the sidelines.
The Town skipper has been out of action since the 5-4 defeat to Bradford City in August when he hobbled off with a calf problem, but this latest setback is the result of an Achilles injury.
Duff is one of four long-term absentees at Whaddon Road, but he is hoping the knock won't keep him out for too long.
"It's more muscular, which is a good thing," he told the Gloucestershire Echo.
"We are not sure how long it is going to take to settle down, but I am going to stay off it for a couple of weeks and see how it goes."
Meanwhile, Cheltenham boss Martin Allen will be boosted by the return to fitness of Elvis Hammond, who could feature against Bury on Saturday.
