Town boss Billy Heath could welcome back as many as five players for the trip to Maidenhead tomorrow (3.0).

Midfielder Danny Clarke is available after suspension, but Heath said Scott McManus, Matty Brown, Matty Kosylo and Michael Duckworth could all feature too if they came through training unscathed last night.

Defender Cliff Moyo is about to become a father and could miss the game if his partner goes into labour.

Heath said loanees Dion Charles and George Waring will both still be at the club for Saturday’s game, and will make a decision on whether to try and extend their deals next week.

Maidenhead have lost their last two after winning their previous three in a row.

Alan Devonshire’s side have only won once in their last six home matches and have only kept four clean sheets in their 15 home games this term.

Striker Dave Tarpey is still joint top-scorer at the club, despite moving to Barnet at the end of August.

The other player at the club with seven goals, Adrian Clifton, will miss Saturday’s game through suspension after being sent-off in their defeat at Solihull Moors last time out.
