Football - Elliott doubt for Robins

Cheltenham defender Steve Elliott looks unlikely to face his former club Bristol Rovers on New Year's Day.

The 35-year-old experienced centre-back picked up an ankle injury in training which has sidelined him for the festive period and looks to keep him out of the local derby.

Connor Goldson is set to deputise once more while West Brom loanee Kemar Roofe is set for a recall to to the starting line-up having impressed as a substitute in the shock loss to Mansfield.

The loan stays of Goldson and Roofe, along with Rotherham loanee David Noble, expire after Saturday's home match with leaders Chesterfield.
