Football - Fringe players get Robins chance

Cheltenham's fringe players will have the chance to impress against Portsmouth in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy after a number of injuries to Mark Yates' squad.

PA Sport Report

Steve Elliott and Craig Braham-Barrett will not be available, Matt Richards has a hamstring problem and remains a doubt while Troy Brown is still out.

One player who may return to the bench is Jamie Cureton. The experienced forward has been sidelined with a shoulder problem he sustained when opening his account for the club on the opening day.

Yates has called for his players to stand up and be counted after their 4-1 defeat to Bury on Saturday.
