Cheltenham v Morecambe preview
Last Updated: 01/10/18 7:05pm
Sam Jones will face a late fitness test ahead of Cheltenham hosting Morecambe in League Two on Tuesday.
The 27-year-old midfielder has picked up a knock and remains a doubt. Tom Field picked up a knock in Saturday's 2-0 home loss to Lincoln, so will also be assessed, with Liam McAlinden also doubtful to feature.
Defender Chris Hussey should be available for selection, though Sean Long is unlikely to be ready to play.
Alex Kenyon and Andrew Fleming will both miss out for Morecambe, with both men suffering from knee injuries. James Sinclair will not be available either, having suffered a nasty broken ankle in training. The 30-year-old defender is likely to be sidelined for four months.
Garry Thompson remains another long-term absentee due to an Achilles problem.
Cheltenham have lost just one of their last 10 league games against Morecambe (W6 D3), keeping six clean sheets in the process.
Morecambe have lost four of their last five league games away to Cheltenham (D1), conceding three goals in three of those games.
Cheltenham have picked up just one point from a possible 21 in their last seven home league games (D1 L6). This is their worst home winless run in the EFL since February 2015 (nine games).
With wins against Macclesfield and Grimsby in their two most recent league fixtures, Morecambe have won two on the bounce in league competition for the first time since January 2018. They haven't won three in a row in the EFL since August 2016.
