Tommy Warrilow was due to hold a sick parade at training on Thursday night after a flu bug hit Tonbridge players and staff this week.

Warrilow (pictured) who has also been under the weather himself, cancelled Tuesday’s session, and was expecting at least a couple to fail to report, ahead of the Blue Square Bet South trip to second-bottom Basingstoke on Saturday.

He said: "Several of the lads including me haven’t been feeling great, and a couple texted me to say they wouldn’t be there, I will just have to see who make it."

Defender Danny Walder looks set to be ruled out for nearly a month with damaged ankle ligaments sustained in the 2-0 defeat at Truro on Saturday.

Warrilow heads for Hampshire admitting he is suprised to see Basingstoke, who reached the play-offs last season, so low in the table.

He said: "How they are down there with what they have got, I don’t know."

Tonbridge conceded early and late to lose at Truro, and Warrilow admitted he felt it was an opportunity missed.

He added: "I didn’t tear into the boys afterwards because they had been superb at Merthyr and a few were affected by the bug. We didn’t do ourselves any favours though, and I was annoyed because I thought we could have been out of sight in the game after 15 minutes."
