We take a look at the latest from both camps ahead of Saturday’s FA Trophy tie at Borough Park (3pm kick-off).

Craig Harrison will be without Carl Magnay after the skipper was found to have a small amount of fluid on his lung following a collision in Saturday’s game at Dover Athletic.

Magnay is now set for further tests this week but it is likely he will be unavailable for selection for around a fortnight leaving Harrison with a decision to make at right-back this weekend.

Jonathan Franks is nearing fitness after a hamstring strain and could be involved on Saturday but Nicky Featherstone is still recovering from a fracture in his fibula and Luke George is out with hamstring trouble.

Keith Watson continues to work on his fitness outdoors but remains sidelined until the New Year, while Aaron Cunningham and Ryan Donaldson are still both recuperating from ankle operations.

Nicky Deverdics will be free to play against Workington after the Club successfully appealed against the red card he was shown in last weekend’s game at Dover.

Workington boss Lee Andrews has no new injury worries ahead the First Round tie and has admitted that there shouldn’t be any problems this week with all of his squad “desperate to play” against Pools.

The Reds are currently in the midst of an unbeaten run which extended to 13 games on Saturday with their win over Mickleover which pushed them in to the play-off places.
