Injury crisis for Lillywhites ahead of Trophy test

IN CHARGE: Simon Osborn
IN CHARGE: Simon Osborn

Crawley Town v Bromley

BROMLEY were sweating on the fitness of a host of players ahead of Saturday's FA Trophy clash with Blue Square Premier Crawley Town.

The likes of Francis Duku, Tutu Henriques, Mark Corneille, and Nic McDonnell were going to be assessed on Thursday to gauge their readiness for the weekend.

All have missed recent games, joining an injury list that already included Steve Clark, Simon Glover and Barry Moore.

Following manager Mark Goldberg's resignation last week, player coach Simon Osborn is in charge of first team affairs with fellow player coach Bobby Bowry and assistant manager Derek Parnham.

He said: "We'll assess them at training and take it from there. It's a bit difficult at the moment with the manager just gone, but we've got to stick together.

"We were unlucky to lose against Lewes on Tuesday, and need to show the same commitment on Saturday against Crawley."

The Lillywhites are hoping to arrest a run of four consecutive defeats, but Crawley boast the third best home record in the Blue Square Premier despite their lowly 16th position.
