King’s Lynn Town could be without three centre-back options for away test at Halesowen Town

Gary Setchell has selection issues at the heart of his defence as King's Lynn Town prepare to visit Halesowen Town this evening.
The Linnets' boss could be without Ross Watson, Ryan Fryatt and the versatile Dan Quigley – who can play centre-back – for tonight's Evo-Stik Premier Division match. And with Saturday's FA Cup tie against Lancaster City just around the corner, Setchell will have to be extra careful who he selects in his defence for the fixture in the Midlands.
'Ross is struggling. His heel went at half-time really,' said Lynn's boss of the player who came off during the second half of Saturday's 2-0 home win over Witton Albion.
'(Ryan) Fryatt's probably still struggling. Dan (Quigley) is still struggling. So it's not ideal. I'll have to make a decision on who plays centre-half with Henry (Eze) if them two (Ryan and Ross) aren't fit.'
Quigley has been sidelined for a couple of matches with an ankle problem while Fryatt was left out on Saturday to allow a head injury to heal. Chris Ward could partner Eze – who is cup tied for the weekend's home home third qualifying round test.

Sam Mulready's brace was enough for the Linnets to pick up their first league win in three league matches last time out. But Setchell wasn't ecstatic with his team's display.
'I look at my team without the ball and we didn't have nowhere near as much intensity without the ball as we did against Hednesford,' added Setchell.

'If we go to Halesowen and play like that we'll get beat. It's as simple as that and no-one will tell me any different.
'I want my team to play better than we did on Saturday. I'm demanding on the players.'
