It’s good news for Danny Cowley then, who will be hoping to get some more wins on the board in a bid to try and get his side battling up near the play-offs where they want to be.
They may have to do it without John Marquis though, as it is unclear when he will be back in contention, according to Hampshire Live. They are still taking a look at his fitness and it means that he might be ruled out for the weekend.
The striker is another regular starter and was pivotal for Portsmouth last year. He already has seven goal contributions this season and it means Pompey will have to look elsewhere for attacking inspiration against Wimbledon if he does have to miss out.
Furthermore, Cotterill managed the current Cheltenham boss Michael Duff whilst he was in charge of Burnley. But despite the mutual respect between both managers, and Cotterill’s ties to Cheltenham, he has been at pains to point out that three points on the road remains his firm focus.
He must decide whether or not to hand Josh Vela his first league start in over a month. The midfielder has recently recovered from a knee injury and lasted 90 minutes against Wigan last time out.
Goalkeeper Marko Marosi and defender Matthew Pennington are available after testing positive for COVID-19. Josh Daniels (ankle) remains absent, whilst Cotterill has revealed an unknown member of the squad faces a late fitness check. These sides meet for the first time since Jean Louis Akpa-Akpro scored the games only goal in April 2015.

Town boast an excellent head-to-head record against Cheltenham – they are unbeaten in the last ten meetings, and have only lost five of the previous 16 fixtures. Robins boss Michael Duff could be without midfielder Ellis Chapman due to a groin problem.
Defender Will Boyle has been absent for a number of weeks due to a torn ligament in his ankle, whilst Charlie Raglan is out with a knee problem. Wolves loanee Taylor Perry remains on the treatment table and Callum Wright will not be available until Christmas. Cheltenham, who recorded a 1-1 draw against Portsmouth in their last league encounter, currently occupy 16th place.
