Labadie fitness boost for Robins

The on-loan midfielder missed last weekend’s 2-2 draw against Northampton having picked up five bookings this season, but he is set to travel to Derbyshire and should be in contention for a starting berth.

Defenders Lee Ridley and Michael Townsend have returned to training after calf injuries and have a slim chance of being involved at the weekend, with late fitness tests likely for both.

Loanees David Pipe and Ashley Eastham are certain to continue having made their debuts against the Cobblers, while the versatile Andy Gallinagh is set to make his 100th appearance for the Robins at Saltergate.

Captain Shane Duff (Achilles) is not yet doing any ball work but continues to work on his fitness in the gym ahead of his planned return in the New Year.
