Billy Heath will be happy to know that his squad has nearly a clean bill of health ahead of Tuesday’s away fixture at Leyton Orient, with only a minor injury to Denton being picked up against Maidenhead.

The striker completed the full 90 minutes however Heath revealed after the game that the striker was suffering from a dead leg but hopes that won’t be an issue in the build up to Tuesday’s long away day.

“Denton’s got a bit of a dead leg but we’re hoping that’s not going to affect, we’ll see how he is in the morning but he has got a bit of a dead leg at the minute but everyone else is okay”

Cliff Moyo made his long awaited return to the squad on Saturday as he made the bench in Heath’s line up and although he was not used, the manager feels the defender is almost ready to get back on the field.

“He had two training sessions, well he had one and a half because he did half the session on Tuesday and then he did the full session on Thursday so we made the decision today that if we just give him a little more time.”

“He did the warm up today, he was on the bench, he comes into contention like everybody does on Tuesday but we just felt he may have needed another session today, what he’s done today before the game and after the game.”

“He’s definitely fit now.”

In other news, Michael Duckworth underwent surgery on Friday as he continues to recover from his long term injury and we hope to have him back around Christmas.

Apart from that the squad is in top condition and will be preparing for the tough away fixture at Leyton Orient on Tuesday and will be hoping to continue the unbeaten run.
