JACK FITZWATER is fit to face Exeter City in the FA Cup second round on Saturday.

The West Brom loanee suffered concussion near the end of Forest Green's 1-1 draw with Cheltenham Town last weekend and returned to his parent club for tests this week.

Forest Green boss Mark Cooper said: "Jack Fitzwater will be available, he was initially ruled out with concussion but having passed all the tests at West Brom, he has been passed as fit to play."

Midfield duo Isaiah Osbourne, Drissa Traore and striker Keanu Marsh-Brown are nursing knocks ahead of Exeter. Meanwhile, Charlie Cooper is making good progress and is expected to play a part in Rovers' Checkatrade clash at Swindon Town on Tuesday.

"We've got a few bumps and bruises, there is no point trying to hide it and be clever. We have to deal with that, we're not going to moan about that,” Cooper explained.

"We're nearing January now and we've been quite lucky but we're feeling the pinch a little bit now with players who are not going to be available for Saturday."
