Luke Varney in contention for Cheltenham

Luke Varney is in contention to start as Cheltenham host second-from-bottom Morecambe on Saturday.

The striker has been sidelined for over two months but returned as a second-half substitute during the Robins’ 1-1 draw with Bradford on Tuesday.

Fellow striker Reuben Reid could also feature as he has overcome the hamstring injury that has kept him out of action since December.

Manager Michael Duff has no new injury concerns, but Tahv Campbell and Chris Clements are both out with illness and will not partake.

Morecambe boss Derek Adams could be without centre-back Ryan Cooney for the clash.

The 19-year-old, who is on loan from Premier League side Burnley, left the pitch during the Shrimps’ 2-0 defeat of Walsall on Tuesday.

The extent of the injury is not established, but Adams has Christian Mbulu poised to deputise in Cooney’s absence.

Morecambe are currently 23rd in League Two after the midweek Walsall victory, with only one team to be relegated from the fourth-tier this season.
