Interim Oystermen boss Richard Langley faces an injury-crisis ahead of Town’s trip to fellow strugglers Tooting & Mitcham on Saturday.

In the first game since Langley and Nicky Southall took over the reins from departed manager Justin Luchford, Town stopped the rot with a 1-0 win over Chipstead on Saturday and will look to overhaul Tooting with victory on Saturday.

Langley (pictured) said: "It would be good to go there and get an unbeaten run going. It won’t be easy, though. They are no mugs on their own patch and especially as we’ve only got 12 of our squad of 16 fit – and two of them are keepers."

Jimmy Dryden and Shane Hamshare were joined on the treatment table by Jake Beecroft (hamstring) and James Morrish (ankle) in Tuesday night’s 2-0 League Cup defeat to Maidstone.

Langley said: "We have got Rob Gilman back from suspension, and Nicky is fit again but we’re going to have to see what our reserve players can do."

One of those who could figure is 18-year-old former Maidstone youngster Bitteng Guila who impressed against his former club on Tuesday.
