Injury-hit King’s Lynn Town will be without five first team players when they take to the field at home to Biggleswade tonight.
Conor Marshall, David Bridges, Sam Gaughran, Jordan Yong and Kern Miller are all ruled out with knocks while striker Sam Mulready is carrying a tight hamstring.
Midfielder Michael Clunan returns from suspension.
Linnets boss Gary Setchell, who was yesterday trying to arrange a loan deal to ease the player shortage, said: “We have been going in the right direction but have been hit by a hideous list of injuries.
“No squad at our level can afford to have that many players out and it’s the first time in six seasons that I’ve ever had five or six players out but that’s management.
“We are still going to remain positive and it will give other youngsters at the club a chance to impress.”
