Jamie Paterson is back in City’s squad for Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship encounter at Sheffield Wednesday (3pm).
The winger missed the 2-1 Severnside derby victory over Cardiff City last time out with a hamstring complaint, but the international break has done him good.
Nathan Baker, who did feature against Cardiff, has now shaken off the full effects of his recent knee complaint.
However, head coach Lee Johnson did report “a few niggles in the camp” ahead of City’s trip to Hillsborough.
Johnson himself used the international break to jet to Dubai with his wife, leaving his daughter with his parents.
“She’s been terrorising them for the past week so if Cheltenham go on a terrible run now it’s my fault,” joked the City boss.
Johnson was quick to congratulate Bailey Wright on reaching next summer's World Cup with Australia.
Wright completed all 180 minutes of the two-legged intercontinental play-off with Honduras, which the Socceroos won 3-1 on aggregate.
Wright will now join Hordur Magnusson in Russia next June, after his Iceland side came through the European qualifers as group winners.
There was heartbreak for Callum O'Dowda, however, as Ireland lost 5-1 on aggregate to Denmark in their play-off doubleheader.
Johnson said: "We're all delighted for Bailey and Hordur and who knows, others could still get there - the likes of Famara Diédhiou (Senegal) or Niclas and Gustav (Sweden).
"Obviously on the other end of the spectrum we're all disappointed for Callum, but the good thing is he's still young and is the future for Ireland."
