STRIKER Luke Norris could return for Swindon Town’s trip to Cheltenham Town on Saturday as the club continue to monitor the seven-goal frontman’s injured shoulder.

Norris was forced off during the second half of last weekend’s home win over Cambridge United with what was initially feared to be another dislocation of the shoulder, similar to the one he suffered at Carlisle on the opening day of the season.

However, Norris trained with the squad today and Town will check on his comfort levels to see if he is ready for the short trip north on Saturday.

“Luke trained with us today and we’re monitoring that situation,’’ Flitcroft said after training today.

“It’s making sure we get the right amount of work to rest ratio, which we’re doing at the minute.

“If he’s comfy with it and we’ve got 48 hours before the game so that gives us more time.

“You don’t have to talk about pain thresholds with this lad. He’s already proved he wants to play for this club so it’s just a case of him being comfortable, making all the right body movements to do his job and be successful like he has done.’’

Left-back Chris Hussey’s groin injury will keep him out of the trip to Gloucestershire but Flitcroft is pleased with the way the on-loan defender’s problem is being dealt with by both Town and parent club Sheffield United.

“We’ve had good in-depth talks with Sheffield United and we’re all on the same pages with his recovery,’’ added the Town boss.

“I’ve no timescale on it but we’ve had some really good dialogue and plan of attack on Chris.’’

Fellow defender Chris Robertson is in good shape to return after being given last weekend off to be with his family and unwell baby, having played a full 90 minutes in the behind-closed-doors friendly with Bristol City on Tuesday.

But on-loan midfielder Timi Elsnik is ‘touch and go’ to take part, having returned to parent club Derby County for treatment after he tweaked a groin in the warm-up prior to the Cambridge clash last Saturday.
