Top scorer Rhys Murphy could be back in contention for the Bank Holiday Monday visit of FC Halifax Town to Huish Park.

The 13-goal frontman missed the 2-0 win at Wealdstone at the weekend with a groin strain.

Speaking to BBC Radio Somerset after the match, manager Darren Sarll said: “I’d like the physio to ring me on Sunday and say we have no new injuries, that would be nice. We lost Rhys (Murphy) in the week and Matthew (Worthington) yesterday, but Lawson (D’Ath) is inching ever so slowly back and hopefully he’ll get out for the last couple of games. Murphy tweaked his groin, he might be okay for Monday (against FC Halifax Town) but that will be touch and go. We have a tough game, Halifax is always a tough game for us, they are very tactical and strategic in how they play and we’ll have to be good again. But, we’ve seen that one of training session can lead to two or three injuries and we’re left a little bit short.”

Central defender Luke Wilkinson seems unlikely to feature after going off in the 5-1 defeat at Solihull Moors last month, but Alex Bradley could feature after a cameo appearance at the end of the match at Wealdstone.

D’Ath seems unlikely to be involved and former Halifax man Josh Staunton is out until the end of the season with a knee injury.

Matt Warburton and Gabriel Rogers seem unlikely to feature having not made an appearance since mid-March and late November respectively.
