Opportunity knocks at Lowestoft Town after Harvey Hodd returns to Fleetwood Town

Harvey Hodd's return to Fleetwood represents the chance for one of Lowestoft's fringe players to step up, says manager Ady Gallagher.
The 20-year-old's loan spell at Crown Meadow ended after the Blues' 0-0 draw with Hednesford having played a full part in Lowestoft's return to form. But Gallagher will turn to one of Robert Eagle, Danny Crow or Connor Deeks to fill the void, and he's confident they will seize their opportunity.
Gallagher said: 'It gives a chance to one of the other lads and it's up to them to take it. I was very pleased with the strength of our bench on Tuesday and it will fall on one of them now to come in and take their chance.'
Lowestoft had been keen to extend Hodd's loan spell but the midfielder wanted to return to Fleetwood and try to force his way into the League One side.
Gallagher added: 'He has had lots of time on the pitch with us and it has done him good.'
Jake Reed limped off against Hednesford in midweek but Gallagher revealed the Blues' top goalscorer was merely taken off as a precaution and should be fit for the trip to Chorley this afternoon.
