HYDE UNITED will be without both main strikers in tomorrow’s Evo-stik NPL premier division clash with Matlock Town at Ewen Fields.
Top scorer Ayrton Bevins, who netted a hat-trick at Ramsbottom last week, is unavailable because of a family bereavement. Ryan Masterson, who failed to figure in the opening games because of a knee injury, has left the Tigers and returned home to the Republic of Ireland.
On the plus side, central defender Adam Jones has regained fitness. The rest of the squad are all available.
Cavell Coo is the only doubt for ASHTON UNITED who visit Grantham. The defender has a sore back.
STALYBRIDGE CELTIC are gearing up for the bank holiday weekend double-header with a squad shorn only of long-term absentee Alex Mudimu.
Defender Danny Wisdom has recovered from a groin strain picked up in pre-season and could make his long-awaited debut when Bridge make the short trip to Stockport County tomorrow in Vanarama North.
Striker Adam Farrell, who has been on the bench for the past two games, is expected to return to the starting line-up as Liam Watson’s men look for their first away point of the season.
Fellow striker Chris Simm will be available tomorrow and for Monday’s home game with his former club Chorley as the three-match ban he picked up for a red card at Gainsborough does not start until Tuesday.
Jonno Hunt and Alex Frost are both suspended for CURZON ASHTON who are home to Fylde.
Simon Woodford is sidelined with a calf strain and Connor Hampson is still out with a knee injury. Jordan Wright is 50/50 with slight knee ligament damage picked up in training.
The rest of our sides are in FA Cup preliminary round action, hoping to pick up £1,925 in prize money.
DROYLSDEN, who were on the wrong end of a 6-0 drubbing at Glossop in midweek, are away to Barton Old Boys of the Northern Counties East League. Their only absentee is defender Ben Hampson who has ankle ligament problems.
Chris Willcock has a full squad for GLOSSOP NORTH END’s home clash with Prescot Cables, a club they beat 4-0 in the league last Saturday.
Centre-half Ryan Marley could return for MOSSLEY who are home to Bamber Bridge. He trained last night (Thursday) and is available for selection.
Midfielder Danny Murray, signed on loan from Stockport County, could also feature but defender Lee Wilshaw is injured.
