Lynden Gooch is unlikely to feature for Sunderland when they face Cheltenham at the Stadium of Light.
Gooch missed Sunderland’s 1-0 win against Bolton at the weekend with a foot injury.
Callum Doyle is being monitored by the Black Cats after coming off during the Bolton game with a back injury.
Full-back Dennis Cirkin is also being assessed after suffering a suspected head injury against the Trotters.
Cheltenham’s Charlie Raglan will not be involved.
Raglan was not in the matchday squad for the Wigan defeat at the weekend after picking up a knock in training last week and manager Michael Duff confirmed that the defender has been set back a week.
Meanwhile forward Kyle Vassell is a doubt.
Centre-half Will Boyle is still out of action for the Robins due to injury.
