Cheltenham Town goalkeeper Calum Kitscha is set to sign a new contract and fellow young stopper Rhys Lovett has also been offered a new deal, manager Gary Johnson has revealed.

Kitscha, 23, has played one senior game for the club since signing last summer.

Former Walsall trainee Lovett, 19, who also joined in 2015, is yet to make his first-team debut for the Robins.

"I still think (Kitscha) is a good goalkeeper - he just needs games," Johnson told BBC Radio Gloucestershire.

"I gave them the opportunity to go and find first-team football. But they decided to come back. They want to both stay full-time.

"So at the moment we have got two goalkeepers that would be with us for the season. I'm pleased they decided to come back."

Charlton stopper Dillon Phillips spent 2015-16 on loan at Cheltenham, making 37 appearances, as they won promotion back to the Football League.
