STRIKER Danny Cadamarteri will be in the running for a place in the Town team as they travel to Yeovil on Saturday.
The 31-year-old missed the 1-0 away success at Hartlepool on Tuesday night due to a back problem, but boss Lee Clark was confident the former England Under 21 international would be in the frame to face the Glovers.
“Danny just had a bit of an issue with his back, but hopefully that will be rectified in time for Saturday’s game,” said Clark.
“He has had a scan and there is no serious problem, but we did not want him sitting on a bus for a couple of hours just in case that didn’t help the situation.
“But it seems that it is settling down and he should be ready.”
However, after Town produced an impressive attacking performance in winning at Hartlepool – putting their drive for an automatic promotion place firmly back in gear – Cadamarteri will have all on to break into Clark’s starting line-up.
The Town boss was justifiably pleased with the display at Victoria Park.
“We have a very lean squad who are all doing their jobs properly. That is why we got the result,” said Clark. “We are not looking at other results because it is all about us doing our job and I have to be pretty happy with the way things are going.”
There was also praise for Anthony Pilkington who bagged the winner at Hartlepool, going on to score when most other players had stopped, expecting a referee’s whistle after Gary Roberts had been brought down by a flailing arm.
“It was a penalty, but it was a good job that Anthony played on and scored the goal,” said Clark.
“People would have gone crazy otherwise. Their player smashed Gary (Roberts) across the face but nothing was given, so it was a good job Anthony carried on.
“But he has done well again. A similar thing happened at Exeter City when we should have had a penalty but he went on to score, and he has got a fantastic record for us when it comes to scoring goals.”
