We take a look at the latest info from both camps ahead of the weekend.

Craig Harrison is likely to be without Louis Laing after the defender injured his hamstring during the first half of Saturday’s defeat at Bromley.

Laing has been for a scan to ascertain how serious the damage is but it’s expected he will be sidelined for a minimum of a fortnight.

This weekend’s game is set to come too quickly for injured duo Luke George (hamstring) and Rhys Oates (groin) though they are both hoping to step up their work with a return to full training next week.

AFC Fylde boss Dave Challinor will be without skipper Josh Langley after it was confirmed that he ruptured his cruciate ligament in the game with Maidenhead United last week.

Langley was hurt making a challenge which led to a Maidenhead penalty, whilst the defender was also shown a red card to add insult to serious injury.

However, Challinor has moved to strengthen his squad with the arrival of former Exeter City midfielder Tom McCready who could make his debut at Victoria Park on Saturday.
