Ashford United will check on the fitness of Tom Scorer and Andy Irvine ahead of the FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round trip to Guildford City on Saturday.
The pair picked up hamstring problems in the 4-0 win at Lordswood on Tuesday night, and received immediate treatment on the touchline from new physio Ben Cole.
Boss Paul Chambers said: “Both are struggling with little niggles, so we took them off as a precaution, and hopefully have caught them in time.
The tie at the Spectrum Arena revives memories of previous Southern League meetings between the two re-formed clubs, and Chambers said: “We would like a nice little run, and there’s some good prize money available
Chambers is delighted with the club’s perfect start, but continues to play down United’s title chances, despite others tipping them as favourites.
He said: “We are happy doing what we have got to do. It’s nice to have got a few goals, and coming from a lot of different scorers.
Skipper Gary Clarke confirmed his hat-trick in the 6-1 win against Fisher on Saturday was his first ever in senior football, having made his debut for Ashford Town aged 16 – 12 years ago.
Liam Whiting is back available for selection after serving a two-game ban held over from last season, while the club are still waiting on international clearance for new defender Phil Leonard.
If the Guildford tie needs no replay, United will travel to Rochester United on Tuesday.
