“We’ve had a couple,” Challinor admitted. “Fergie [David Ferguson] had to come off with a bang and Luke Armstrong was feeling something towards the end but we’re hopeful there’s nothing serious with either of them.

"Physically it’s a big ask and hopefully we’ve not paid the price too much because of the schedule that’s been placed in front of us.”

Challinor will be monitoring Ferguson and Armstrong’s fitness ahead of the weekend with defenders Ryan Johnson and Lewis Cass hoping to return after they missed the Bromley game due to respective knee injuries.
