Alex Bradley could be back in contention for this weekend’s televised fixture against FC Halifax Town at Huish Park.

The versatile player has missed the opening two matches of the season through injury and manager Darren Sarll said he is hopeful he will be available for selection at the weekend.

Speaking ahead of the game, the boss said: “I would like to think that Alex Bradley will be back in contention on Saturday after injury, it depends how late we can get him back in to training.

“I am not prepared to take a risk on someone like Alex just to get that fifth substitute on the bench.

Alex Bradley is sent off at Aldershot Town last season – it’s the only picture we had of him!

However, he added that there were no new injuries picked up in the 2-1 win at Aldershot Town on Monday with many players who played twice over the Bank Holiday weekend being given two days off training this week.

Sarll said he was still looking to bring “another couple” of players in to the squad.

He added: “We were close on one yesterday (Wednesday) but something turned for the worse and we were not able to get it done.”

Left-back Jack Robinson, who signed from Championship Middlesbrough ahead of the opening game defeat to King’s Lynn last weekend, will not be fit for Saturday.

The managers said: “We don’t know when he will be available, he rolled his ankle in his second session and it didn’t reduce in swelling and he did not recover so we are being precautionary with him.

“I don’t know when he’ll be back, I would like to say next Saturday away at Stockport.

“He will be a big player for us when he is because he is a wonderful passer of the ball and maybe allows us to play (Jordan) Barnett a bit further forward.”
