Cheltenham boss Mark Yates will monitor Russell Penn ahead of the trip to Rochdale on Friday night.

The Robins midfielder used painkillers to get through their clash with Port Vale last week after being on the receiving end of a heavy challenge in the derby with Hereford and is rated 50/50 and Yates could decide to rest the former Burton man.

Striker Kaid Mohamed missed out on the draw with Micky Adams' men after picking up a kick and a number of knocks to his ankle but is expected to return to action as Yates celebrates his third year in charge of the Robins.

Cheltenham are on a five-game unbeaten run ahead of the trip to Spotland to face an out-of-sorts Rochdale side before back to back home games against Wycombe and then Bristol Rovers.
