TOWN expect strike duo Jon Stead and Andy Booth to return to training later this week.
Both were shock absentees from Sunday's 2-0 win at York, which extended Town's winning run to six matches.
Manager Peter Jackson confirmed Booth's withdrawal because of a groin niggle was more a precautionary measure, while Stead will now need further treatment to his left hamstring strain.
Neither man will be considered for the Reserves trip to play Hull at North Ferriby United tomorrow (7.00), although the east coast club admit the match has to be in doubt because of severe weather forecasted.
Meanwhile, midfield star Tony Carss is making excellent progress in recovering from knee trouble and should be back in training early next week, after Town have visited Bristol Rovers on Saturday.
Defender Paul Scott should also be back in the swing in a week to 10 days after ankle surgery, while keeper Ian Gray is still having pain with a finger on his damaged left hand and will have a further MRI scan later this week.
Ian Hughes (knee) will be another two to three weeks before he can return to training.
