No new worries for Cheltenham boss Gary Johnson

Cheltenham manager Gary Johnson has no new selection concerns for the visit of Port Vale but remains without five first-team players.

Defender Taylor Moore and forward Danny Wright complete three-match bans following their red cards at Mansfield on January 20.

Left-back Jordan Cranston has returned to training following a hamstring injury but is still unavailable for selection.

Defender Jordon Forster (Achilles) and forward Jaanai Gordon (knee) are long-term absentees.

Port Vale striker Anton Forrester could come into contention for a start.

The 23-year-old, a half-time substitute for last weekend’s goalless draw against Morecambe, scored a 45-minute hat-trick in the reserves’ 6-0 win over Mansfield in midweek.

New signings Callum Howe and Kyle Howkins were the centre-back partnership in that game but after the clean sheet last weekend, manager Neil Aspin will be reluctant to change his defence.

Forwards Cristian Montano and Donovan Wilson could come back into the squad having been left out against Morecambe, but Kjell Knops (knee) and Adam Yates (facial injury) remain long-term absentees.
