No new worries for Rovers
Bristol Rovers have no fresh injury worries for the trip to Cheltenham as they look to build on a run of three successive victories.
The Pirates' last-gasp 2-1 win over Barnet on Friday night moved them up to 19th in npower League Two - two points clear of the relegation zone - but they travel to face a Robins side in the automatic promotion places.
Ward, who has overseen four wins from his six games back at The Memorial Stadium, was able to play young striker Eliot Richards against the Bees after he shook off an injury.
Striker Ryan Brunt, a recent signing from Stoke, is expected to retain his place up front after his late winner, while midfielder Jim Paterson is still sidelined with a hamstring complaint.
