The 34-year-old is expecting to have an almost full strength side available on Saturday afternoon with defender Terence Vancooten and an unnamed player the only concerns.

Sarll told CometSport: “We are pretty strong.

“Vancooten is still stuggling from the Lincoln game and we’ve had a couple of illnesses this week but in terms of physical availability we are okay.

“Maybe one that will remain in house has been ill for a couple of days and might not be able to feature but we are strong.

“We have to be because we haven’t got that many players that we can afford a bad week on the injury front so we have to have people available.”

Despite suffering a blow to the head during the 4-1 win against Cheltenham Town on New Years Day, Danny Newton will be available to Darren Sarll who said:

“Its Danny Newton isn’t it? He’s like Wolverine so he’s fine, not a problem.”
