FC Halifax Town striker Gareth Seddon is facing a race against time to be fit for today’s trip to Oxford City.
Seddon limped off mid-way through the first half of the 3-0 FA Trophy win over Chelmsford City.
The striker confirmed after the match he had suffered a dead leg and not a torn hamstring as first feared.
Manager Neil Aspin will be hoping that his marksman recovers in time,otherwise his striking options will be limited to just two – Lee Gregory and Alex Johnson.
Aspin had no choice but to play midfielder Dan Gardner behind Gregory last weekend as Johnson could not be called upon due to being cup-tied.
Jason St Juste replaced Seddon and made up for his penalty miss against Solihull Moors with a goal – and might well have earned himself a starting berth at the Marsh Lane stadium.
Midfielder Jon Worthington is also a doubt with a foot injury he suffered in added time in the 0-0 draw against Solihull. Worthington sat in the stands on Saturday but was optimistic that he would not be out for too long.
New signing Sean Williams, 20, could feature after making the move to Halifax from Colwyn Bay on non-contract terms.
However, Aspin has warned Williams he will have to work hard to get into the team after an impressive display in the Trophy.
Aspin has described Williams as a ‘talented player who needs to fulfil his potential.’
