CHRIS AMADI has paid the penalty for HYDE UNITED’s failure to score in their last three games.
The Oldham-born former Nantwich striker, who scored three times in the Tigers’ first four matches of the season, has been released by manager Darren Kelly who commented: “There are one or two issues, but the fact is I need players to stand out and Chris wasn’t doing that.”
Otherwise Hyde have no injury or suspension problems as they prepare for the huge task of getting their season back on track against Evo-stik NPL first division north leaders Bamber Bridge at Ewen Fields tomorrow (Saturday).
Their run of five defeats in six matches has seen them slump to 19th place in the table and eliminated from the FA Cup and Integro League Cup.
MOSSLEY, who lost 4-1 at Bamber Bridge in midweek, look set to field a much-changed XI against Ossett Town at Seel Park.
Midfielder Robert Bourne comes in on loan from Bury, and former Southampton youth striker Ciaran Harper joins the Lilywhites from Irish Premier League outfit Ballinamallard United. Mark Haslam and Danny McDonnell return to the club, and Logan Jeffs and Mike Fish come back after missing the game at Irongate.
Things are settling down on the injury front at DROYLSDEN. For tomorrow’s home clash with highly-rated Brighouse Town only Luke Daly and Lloyd Ellams are injured.
Nat Kerr returns from suspension for GLOSSOP NORTH END, who are away to Kendal Town, but Martin Parker and Karl Jones miss the trip to Cumbria because of injury.
In the premier division, Macclesfield Town loan signing Daniel Cowan could go straight into ASHTON UNITED’s defence for the match with Rushall Olympic at Hurst Cross. Co-manager Will Haining might also come into the squad. Rhys Nevins was stretchered off during Tuesday night’s defeat by Buxton.
In Vanarama North, CURZON ASHTON take on Stockport County at the Tameside Stadium without centre-half Matt Flynn, who damaged knee ligaments in the FA Cup replay at Consett, and midfielder Joe Guest, who injured ankle ligaments in the first game.
Danny Shaw is struggling with a thigh muscle problem. Connor Hughes is back in full training.
STALYBRIDGE CELTIC joint-bosses Steve Halford and Paul Phillips have the luxury of an almost fully fit squad for the trip to Darlington. The only absentee is Aidan Chippendale (ankle).
They will be unveiling new strikers Sam Madeley (loan from Macclesfield) and Eddie Toner (Droylsden), and also welcoming back Rochdale youngster Matty Gillam who was ineligible to play in the F A Cup win over Witton Albion.
Midfielder Callum Bagshaw limped off at half time in Tuesday’s FA Cup replay victory at Seel Park but will travel with the squad after coming through training unscathed.
Celtic have loaned winger Henoc Mukendi to Northwich Victoria, and extended Danny Burns’s loan at Skelmersdale United for a further month.
