Matlock Town are facing another injury crisis ahead of the visit of league leaders Farsley Celtic this weekend, the Derbyshire Times report.

Town could be without Craig Westcarr, Brad Beatson, Jordan Chapell, Greg Tempest, Dwayne Wiley and Jamie Jackson.

And Adam Yates is set to miss out after he was sent off in the 4-2 Derbyshire Senior Cup defeat against Alfreton Town.

“We’ll have to see what we’ve got at training on Thursday,” said boss Dave Frecklington. “If Westy (Westcarr) can train on Thursday which we hope he can, he’ll probably be okay, to be honest it was more of a precaution not playing him for he would probably have missed the Farsley game had we put him in.”

“Greg could possibly make it as well, his muscle around his bottom went tight but hopefully he’ll recover. Jacko has a tight hamstring so we’ll have to see how that goes.

“Brad Beatson might make it but playing a side the calibre of Farsley, we need him to be 100 per cent so again we’ll need to assess him. Dwayne’s a major doubt though with a knee injury.”
