League Two fast-starters Cheltenham and Rotherham face off against each other at Whaddon Road on Saturday.
The Robins made a flying start to the current campaign before enduring a run of three games without a win that was stopped thanks to an away victory over Bury last time out.
Rotherham still sit third in the table despite currently being managerless and seeing a string of four consecutive wins coming to end with a goalless draw against Morecambe last Saturday.
Cheltenham striker Elvis Hammond is fully-fit for the contest after coming on as a substitute against Bury.
After successfully coming through another week of training the 28-year-old is completely recovered from his ankle injury and will be pushing for a starting spot.
Key midfielder Michael Pook is recovering well from a knee injury and should make a return in the near future but winger Oliver Bozanic remains a long-term absentee.
Captain Shane Duff is facing another three weeks on the sidelines as he continues suffer from a calf problem.
Otherwise, manager Martin Allen has a full-strength squad to select from as he looks to continue the club's impressive start to the season.
Rotherham's Adam Le Fondre is a doubt for the trip after picking up a knock in training on Thursday.
Le Fondre has grabbed four goals for the club since joining from Rochdale last month but faces a late fitness assessment ahead of Saturday's contest.
Caretaker manager Steve Thornber will also be forced to wait on the status of Nicky Law, who is carrying a toe injury.
Skipper Ian Sharps is expected to overcome a hamstring injury while striker Tom Pope (ankle) played 60 minutes for the reserves in midweek and could be included.
The Millers have not yet found a replacement for former manager Mark Robins as Thornber takes charge of his second match as a stand-in.
