FC Halifax Town boss Pete Wild says he is “gutted” that captain Matty Brown looks set to miss the next seven weeks with a hamstring injury.

Brown has not played for he club since limping off in the 2-1 win over Solihull at The Shay on August 31.

And the skipper has now suffered a recurrence of his hamstring injury.

“Matty will be out until probably the end of November,” he said. “I’m gutted, obviously, but one thing I will say about Nathan (Clarke) and Josh Staunton is I think they’ve been excellent.

”Josh has got better every game. I’m not worried in the slightest, it is what it is, and one man’s misfortune is a chance for somebody else to try and prove themselves.”
