Simon Ainge is hoping to be fit to play against Darlington on Saturday for Boston United at Blackwell Meadows.
The 31-year-old is on loan from Darlington for the entire season, but there is no clause in the arrangement to prevent him playing against his parent club in the league.
Quakers manager Alun Armstrong was keen for Ainge to leave the club in the summer due to financial reasons, as he believed there was greater value to be found elsewhere.
Armstrong explained: “He’s a Boston player. Yes, we contribute a bit to his salary but it was the only way I could move him on and I had to agree to their terms. I needed him out for financial reasons.”
