Aswad Thomas has a sore Achilles and may be rested for the FA Carlsberg Trophy tie against Havent and Waterlooville on Saturday. Rob Scott explains: “The conditions might have played a part in that and the 3G pitch hasn’t helped. We need to monitor that one and don’t want t make it any worse.”
Liam Hearn is continuing to progress his fitness campaign after Achilles surgery - although the Town striker did suffer a minor setback last week. He is now hopefully back on schedule for a return in March.
Frankie Artus is progressing well from his hernia operation so is set to join in with training next week.
Everyone else is fit and available for the visit of the Hampshire side.
