Cheltenham Town manager Gary Johnson says Dan O'Shaughnessy must step up with Jordan Cranston out injured.

Cranston will be out for "two to four weeks" after suffering a hamstring injury in Cheltenham's 2-2 draw with Luton Town on Saturday.

The left-back has been a key player for the Robins this season, making 21 appearances in all competitions.

"It's gutting really because it's a long time until January when we can change things," said Johnson.

He continued to BBC Radio Gloucestershire: "However, Dan O'Shaughnessy has had a couple of good games when he's come in, so he'll get an opportunity now.

"He can play left-back or left wing-back, so we're sorry to lose Cranston, but it gives O'Shaughnessy an chance."

Cheltenham are 16th in League Two and are unbeaten in three league matches following Will Boyle's 97th-minute equaliser against Luton.
