Gareth Seddon will face a late fitness test ahead of tonight’s game against new league favourites Chester.

The Seals are one of three sides who boast a 100 per cent record from their first five games, with Brackley Town and Guiseley on 18 points after their wins last night.

Town are on 10 points and will look to close the gap with a win tonight at the Exacta.

Striker Seddon, who will miss three games starting at home to Gloucester on September 15, was withdrawn just after the hour mark in Town’s 3-1 win over Oxford City and immediately received treatment on what appeared to be a groin injury.

Boss Neil Aspin said: “Seddon is a doubt for the game. He was a doubt for the Oxford game but we gave him the benefit of the doubt.

“It’s something that is restricting him and we have to leave it until Wednesday to see if he’s fit to start.”

Aspin said the Shaymen would travel to Chester looking for all three points.

“You know it’s going to be a big crowd and that they’re on a roll, and we’ve got to be positive,” he said.

“We can’t set up worrying about other teams - we’ve got to go there positive.

“We know it will be a tough test but you’re in football to be tested and Wednesday is a big game for everyone.”
