Danny Andrew: Still so much to play for at Fleetwood Town

Finley and Rossiter picked up knocks in Tuesday's 2-0 Highbury win over Ipswich Town and were replaced late in the game.

Town's 11-goal top scorer Camps has missed the last two matches with a hamstring problem but could be in line for a timely return against the Robins.

Sam Finley was taken off as a precaution late in the game against Ipswich on Tuesday

Head coach Grayson said: "Hopefully Callum Camps will be available because we got a few knocks on Tuesday.

"Sam was just feeling his thigh a little and we just took him off as a precaution. I would expect that if Callum comes through what we have lined up for him in the next couple of days he should be okay.

"Jordan is a warrior and it will probably take more than a tackle to keep him off the pitch.

"He's been caught quite high but he does ever so well. I've been really impressed with how he plays and how he conducts himself. He certainly doesn't shirk any tackles."

Two more players to earn their boss' praise were young defenders James Hill and Harrison Holgate.

The Academy products lined up alongside captain Callum Connolly at the back as Town kept a fourth successive clean sheet against the Tractor Boys.

Grayson added: "The biggest thing is that when some of the younger players have gone out of the team after mistakes they have made - like James Hill at MK Dons and Harrison after the Sunderland game - they have come back into the team and really responded well.

"That shows they are good types, with good attitudes and good characteristics, and that speaks volumes for them and for our academy as well.

"I've said at every club I've been at that no matter what age you are, if you are good enough you will get opportunities if you have the right attitude and show the right qualities."
