King’s Lynn striker Defty is FA Vase injury doubt

King's Lynn's 32-goal striker Jack Defty is a fresh injury concern for Town's FA Vase fifth round tie tomorrow against St Neots at The Walks.

Linnets' joint boss Kevin Boon confirmed on Friday lunchtime Defty will undergo a late fitness test after damaging his hip during Lynn's midweek UCL Premier Division draw at Cogenhoe.

Left back Jamie Alsop is Town's other main injury worry after pulling out in the warm up on Tuesday night when he suffered a reaction to a foot injury sustained in last weekend's 4-2 league success at St Neots. Wide player Steve Spriggs is winning his fitness battle to overcome a viral infection which saw him miss the midweek trip.

'We're slightly worried over a couple of major issues but Spriggsy has gone back to work today so hopefully he will be okay,' said Boon. 'Our main concern is Jamie Alsop and Jack Defty who damaged his hip and thigh area at Cogenhoe. He is suffering quite badly. There is a doubt he might not play, but he is receiving round the clock treatment.

'That one will be a late fitness test, but Jack wants it and he was wanted it all year. Ross Watson has a little sight bruising on his knee but he is raring to go along with all the rest of the other lads. Whoever plays, there will 11 lads giving King's Lynn 100%. Ryan Fryatt is off playing with Norwich's youth set-up against West Ham but Nels (Moriera) will come in from the reserves and we'll bring another in for Ryan but we haven't quite made up our mind.'
