Josh Benson could return to training next week following a hamstring injury.

The midfielder has been out for six weeks.

Head coach Michael Duff told the Chronicle: “He’s due to see the specialist again this week. He’s champing at the bit. Hopefully, next Monday, he will start training again.”

Defender Robbie Cundy is also out with a knee problem. Goalkeeper Brad Collins is expected to miss another month with a quad problem.

Striker Max Watters is due to serve the final game of his three-match ban for a red card against Cambridge last week.
