King's Lynn Town could be without between eight and ten first-team regulars when they make the National League trip to Wealdstone on Tuesday night.

It will be a case of mix and match and see who's available with cash-strapped Lynn's squad being decimated through injury and players being put on furlough.

Manager Ian Culverhouse will prepare for the trip without a number of players who featured at Woking, although his threadbare squad is pretty much expected to pick itself with the trio of Ross Barrows, Cameron King and Michael Gash picking up knocks against the Cards.

Ian Culverhouse and Paul Bastock remained in the dugout after the game at Woking on Saturday, deliberating the way forward due to injuries and other players being placed on the furlough scheme. (44935183)

Adam Marriott, Dayle Southwell, Sam Kelly and injured trio Aaron Jones, Rory McAuley and Alex Brown are already on the scheme and both Barrows and King are likely to join them on it in the short-term.

A clause in Gash's playing deal prevents the frontman from being furloughed.

Lynn, who are being linked with a former Norwich City striker, are expected to announce further new arrivals this week after bringing in defender Jak Hickman from League Two side Bolton Wanderers on Friday.

Hickman, a former Coventry City youth player, joined Bolton last summer, and has made seven appearances for them in all competitions.

The 22-year-old will be at The Walks for the rest of the season, and is set to make his debut against the Stones.

Like many clubs at present, Wealdstone have some players furloughed while they have also dipped into the loan market recently with the arrival of Cheltenham Town defender Daniel Bowry.

Bowry's signing was announced on Friday but he will not appear against Lynn as he was sent off on Saturday in time added on against Halifax.

Following the departure of manager Dean Brennan at the beginning of February, Stuart Maynard's promotion from the assistant role with the club has seen one win and two draws from six games.

At the time of Brennan's exit, Wealdstone were on a dismal run of one win and two draws from ten games.
