Luke Croll is a doubt for the fixture, after going off injured on Tuesday night against Stockport. However, with Laurence Maguire, Tyrone Williams, and Calvin Miller waiting in the wings, there are plenty of options to choose from.

Jeff King will not feature in this fixture as he is now suspended for the next three games after receiving a straight red card against Stockport County. 

Curtis Weston was left out of the squad on Tuesday, as he is still recovering from his injury. The midfielder will be hoping he is deemed fit enough to come back into the mix on Saturday. 

Jak McCourt, who has put in two magnificent performances since coming back into the side in the last couple of weeks, will be hoping to keep his place in the starting XI. 

Meanwhile, Nathan Tyson has returned to the club following his loan spell at Alfreton Town, where he picked up a knee injury. The striker is unlikely to feature in the coming weeks.

On Weymouth FC

Weymouth FC have floated around the non-league pyramid for several years since their formation in 1890. The club beat Dartford at Wembley to gain promotion to the National League in 2020. 

They famously beat Manchester United back in 1987, they also drew with European Cup winners, Nottingham Forest, back in 2005.

The club will be fighting for survival this season, as they currently sit 21st in the National League and have failed to win in any of their previous 12 league fixtures. 

One to watch

Josh McQuoid is an English striker, who has scored plenty of goals in the English Football League over his career. His previous clubs include Millwall FC, AFC Bournemouth and Coventry City. He has scored five goals so far during this campaign.
