Update on player availability

The club can now provide an update on the suspensions and injuries sustained in recent weeks.

Josh Amis and Teddy Mfuni will both be free to play in upcoming league games, despite their red cards in Tuesday night’s Cheshire Senior Cup defeat on penalties to Stalybridge Celtic.

The suspensions for Amis (three matches) and Mfuni (one match) only apply to County FA matches.

Both are also available for the FA Trophy clash with South Shields on Saturday.

Mitch Duggan will start his three-match ban this weekend for the red card he picked up away at Lancaster City.

Duggan will miss the South Shields game in the FA Trophy, plus the upcoming league trips to Guiseley and Whitby Town.

As confirmed recently by manager Mark Beesley, striker Mikey Howard will unfortunately miss the rest of the season with an ACL injury.

Isaac Buckley-Ricketts is back in training after being sidelined recently with appendicitis, though striker Jordan Buckley is still recovering from the ankle injury he picked up against Nantwich Town.

Next week is only the second time this season that the Yellows have had a midweek without a fixture.

After the FA Trophy clash with South Shields at Cantilever Park, the next game is away at Guiseley on Saturday 5 November, before a trip to Whitby on Tuesday 8 November as the Yellows look to continue their three-match winning run in the league.

There are then three home games in four weekends as Marske United (November 12), South Shields (November 26) and Stalybridge (December 3) come to town for the final games at Cantilever Park before Christmas.
