DANIEL Nti is expected to be fit for Worcester City’s home clash against early Vanarama Conference North pace-setters North Ferriby United on Saturday.
The striker, who scored 16 goals last term but is yet to get off the mark this season, suffered a dead leg in the 0-0 Bank Holiday Monday draw at Brackley Town.
He was replaced by Tristan Dunkley 19 minutes from time but manager Carl Heeley does not anticipate him being unavailable to line up at Aggborough.
“Daniel has a dead leg but I don’t see that being a major issue. I would like to think that would settle down by the weekend,” he said.
City have remained unchanged for the last three games after midfielder Connor Gater, who played in the first two games, made way for Ebby Nelson-Addy due to a knee injury.
In that time Worcester have also lost 1-0 at Guiseley and drawn 1-1 against Tamworth at Aggborough.
Heeley has not ruled out making any changes but has been pleased with the level of performances in recent games.
However, forward duo Tristan Dunkley and Dan Udoh are both pushing for starts, having impressed off the bench, while winger David McDermott appeared as a substitute for the first time this season at Brackley following a groin problem.
