Midfielder Leigertwood underwent an ankle operation over the summer and striker Roberts has also yet to appear this season due to a hip injury.
But both players are stepping up their training to give manager Nigel Adkins a welcome fitness boost.
Director of football Nicky Hammond said: "They are both back on the training field and have been making progress.
"It will be nice to have them both back in contention."
