Swindon boss Maurice Malpas has a host of injury problems to contend with ahead of the clash with relegated Port Vale.
Defender Patrick Kanyuka has suffered a setback in his recovery from a groin injury and is set to miss the rest of the season, despite being back in training.
Kanyuka joins Malpas' growing injury list with strike trio Blair Sturrock (arm), Christian Roberts (knee) and Barry Corr (shoulder) already ruled out for the remainder of the campaign.
Defender Hasney Aljofree will also miss the visit of the Valiants as he serves a one-match ban following his dismissal against Doncaster.
However, fellow defender Miguel Comminges comes back into contention for the Robins after serving his two-match ban.
Port Vale boss Lee Sinnott could be without on-loan Birmingham defender Krystian Pearce against The Robins.
The 18-year-old limped out of last week's goalless draw with Huddersfield with an ankle injury and is not expected to resume training until Friday - making him a major doubt.
Sinnott has also suffered another blow with the news that goalkeeper Joe Anyon will miss the rest of the season after straining his knee in training.
Anyon's absence from the side means Chris Martin is set to be between the posts for Vale's remaining three games.
Striker Luke Rodgers is still battling to overcome an ankle injury, while Robin Hulbert (shoulder), Kyle Perry (thigh), Shane Tudor (knee) and Colin Miles (knee ligament) are also set to miss out once again.
