Gary Setchell admits he is relieved that Gary Mills' knee injury is only likely to sideline him for a maximum of two weeks.

The King's Lynn Town boss feared the worst after his loan midfielder limped off during Tuesday's 1-1 home draw with Grantham Town. However, he was encouraged to learn that Mills had only tweaked his medial knee ligaments and could even be in contention for the weekend's home game against Droylseden.

Setchell said: 'When you bring in a player that you are keen on, who got off to a brilliant start – especially with Bunts (Richard Bunting) trying to get back to full fitness – when you think you could lose them that's tough. So it was a huge relief.'

Goalkeeper Danny Gay had four stitches in a head wound after the midweek fixture following a collision with Greg Smith. He will be fit for Saturday and has been roundly praised for his Terry Butcher-esque display which saw him battle on with a bandaged head.

Lynn's manager said: 'Danny was brave. He played on with a pretty big gash in his head. I always give him a bit of stick for being too soft, but he wasn't on Tuesday.'
