Robins have options, but unchanged side is most likely
IT WILL BE a surprise if Cheltenham Town manager Mark Yates makes many, if any, changes to the team which faced Torquay United in last Sunday's First Leg.
He does have options in all positions, except in goal where home-grown Scott Brown is his only senior pick.
Yates (pictured right) had no 'keeper on the bench last weekend.
Experienced duo Alan Bennett (Reading) and Steve Elliott (Blackpool, Bristol Rovers), 30 and 33 respectively, are nailed on centre-back.

Keith Lowe, one of Yates' captures from his old club Kidderminster, and Sido Jombarti filled the full-back spots in the First Leg.
Ex-Bath defender Jombarti is a right-footer at left-back, and is currently keeping on-loan Everton youngster Luke Garbett out of the side.
In midfield, right winger Jermaine McGlashan, who reportedly cost £60,000 from Aldershot in mid-season, scored one goal and made another five days ago, while Kaid Mohamed (see Opposition Watch) filled the left-wing spot.
It will be a surprise if Yates looks beyond ex-Portsmouth starlet Marlon Park and former Plymouth man Luke Summerfield in central midfield – they both played well at Whaddon Road. Yates started then with on-loan duo Ben Burgess (Notts Co) and Jimmy Spencer (Huddersfield) up front.
He was able to keep leading scorer Darryl Duffy (15 goals) and and Jeff Goulding on the bench, while on-loan Yeovil strike Steve MacLean didn't even make the match-day squad.
Full-back Danny Andrew has recently returned from a spell at Mansfield, and ex-Shrewsbury youngster Harry Hooman is an option at centre-back.
In midfield Yates picked out ex-Kidderminster and Burton player Russell Penn as the unluckiest to miss out last Sunday.
He also has ex-trainees Theo Lewis and Bagasan Graham, as well as another 'Kidder' old boy, Brian Smikle, up his sleeve.
It's a decent squad all right, especially in attack.
