Paget Rangers v VS Rugby - Preview
[DR MARTENS LEAGUE MIDLAND DIVISION]

Martin Sockett could be without two key players when he takes his side to Paget Rangers.

VS fought out a second successive draw with Bedworth on Wednesday and finished the game very strongly – but it came at a cost.

Midfielder Lee Harriman looks set to be out of action for around 6-8 weeks after damaging knee ligaments. He twisted his knee in a tackle and had to come off.

Striker Scott Machin damaged his neck in the same game and is only 50-50 of making the trip to Paget’s new 1 million ground. That would be a big blow to Sockett’s side – they haven’t lost in the three games since Machin’s move from Hinckley.

Former Sky Blue youngster Jamie Lenton had a few groin niggles during the game but is expected to come through and play.

Sockett does have options if Machin fails to pass a late fitness test, with Liam O’Neill, Justin Wiseman and Lee Lavery all ready to come in.

Sockett said:

"We didn’t play well against Bedworth on Saturday but I thought we had the better of the midweek came and got better the longer the game went on. That gives us real hope of getting something on Saturday."
