Owen Evans in line for Cheltenham debut

Cheltenham’s new signing Owen Evans could make his debut in Michael Duff’s matchday squad for their match against Walsall on Saturday.

The 23-year-old spent the first half of the season on loan at Macclesfield, but has joined the Robins after goalkeeper Scott Flinders sustained a broken leg and has been ruled out for the remainder of the season.

Max Sheaf and Jacob Greaves have extended their loan deals from Hull until the end of the season and could feature against the Saddlers.

Cheltenham boss Duff will continue to be without the suspended Alex Addai, as he serves the final game of his three-match ban.

Walsall will welcome back on-loan left-back Cameron Pring from suspension for the trip to the Jonny-Rocks Stadium.

The Bristol City loanee missed the 2-1 win at Salford but is set to slot back into defence following Callum Cockerill-Mollett’s injury at the Peninsula Stadium.

However, Mat Sadler deputised at Salford so boss Darrell Clarke may continue the veteran defender in an unfamiliar left-back role, while Caolan Lavery and Josh Gordon will start in attack.

Former Blackburn midfielder Danny Guthrie and defender Shay Facey are sidelined through injury but centre-back Zak Jules is in contention for his first start since November 2 after falling out of favour.
