Cheltenham and Cambridge both hit by illness ahead of League Two clash

Cheltenham will make a late call on the fitness of Chris Hussey ahead of Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two home fixture with Cambridge.

The left-back has been ill this week and was not at training on Thursday, but Ben Tozer has been able to return to fitness after his own bout of illness.

Another positive for the Robins was forward Reuben Reid returning to full fitness after a hamstring injury.

He could be part of the squad on Saturday, but Luke Varney and Tahvon Campbell (both knee) remain on the sidelines.

Cambridge have had a virus spread through the camp this week and have five players who are doubtful for the weekend.

George Maris, Harrison Dunk, Marc Richards, Liam O’Neill and Dan Jones have been hit by illness and have not trained in recent days.

Defender George Taft has recovered from a calf injury, but Saturday will come too soon for him.

Boss Colin Calderwood also provided an update on long-term absentees Gary Deegan (infection) and Jabo Ibehre (knee) this week, but both will not feature before February.
