Tamworth assistant boss Darron Gee is confident the club's injury crisis will clear up before the Lambs' opening day fixture against Boro.

Tamworth had to cancel a friendly against Chasetown on Tuesday due to a lack of players being available and Gee admitted that his squad is struggling in terms of numbers.

But the Tamworth No.2 hopes a number of injuries will clear up in time to face Graham Westley's men on August 8.

"It's been a nightmare for us in terms of injuries this week," Gee told The Tamworth Herald. "When you are working with a small squad, that's the fear that you have.

Despite a troubled pre-season due to the injuries, Gee added that the Blue Square North champions are heading in the right direction and will be ready to put on a performance against Boro in eight days time.
