Football - Elliott blow for Robins

Cheltenham will be without defender Steve Elliott for the visit of Mansfield.

The experienced centre-back has missed the last two games with an ankle injury and will not feature during the busy festive period.

Young midfielder Kemar Roofe returned to action as a substitute in Cheltenham's 1-0 Boxing Day victory over Exeter and is in contention for a starting place.

That win extended the Robins' unbeaten run to 11 league games and saw them move to within four points of a play-off spot.
