The former Chippenham Town striker missed the midweek loss to Barnet with a hamstring injury and manager cooper brand she hopes to have him back in time for the trip to West Yorkshire.

The Shaymen sit five points above the Glovers in the National League table and are buoyed by an FA Trophy quarter-final win last weekend and a blank midweek after their game in house out postponed due to a waterlogged court.

Speaking before the game, Cooper reiterated that he didn’t think there would be many opportunities to bring in new players before the weekend with the player registration deadline closing next Thursday.

He said: “We are so far along in the day now that getting something of the quality that can help us is difficult. The only thing I know about the guys we have is that they will try well, I think from where we were we are in a decent position, we are (four) points clear (of the relegation zone) with good games to play We are calm and we know what do.

Hunt is doing a light jog, it will be a while before he hits the grass again. Charlie Wakefield still has back pain, Scott Pollock has just started training on the grass. Morgan Williams’ scan wasn’t great, so he’ll have 4-6 weeks.

Cooper said he was looking forward to two consecutive scoreless midweek games after the trip to Halifax with two home games against 10th-placed Bromley and then 9th-placed Southend United on March 25 and April 1, respectively.

After that, they face a crucial four-game run against teams around them on the wrong side of the National League table that begins with a trip to Gateshead, currently sitting 21st, first place below the dotted line, on Tuesday, April 4. They then travel to Aldershot Town (currently in 17th place) on Good Friday, and then host Dorking Wanderers who sit one place below them on Easter Monday.

Cooper said:We know what we have to do, we have ten games and we have to cobble together enough fit players to try to continue to build a competitive team.

The ones we’re playing are fighting for their lives, so it could be just as difficult. It is important that we take each game on its merits, the hardest thing is to win a football game, there are 11 other players trying to stop your 11 players. You have to respect the opposition.

I look forward to the rest of the season, there are ten games, we have our fate in our own hands. We have four points (between us and the relegation zone) plus our goal difference, if you had told me when I came in I would have taken it.

We’ve got some really good characters in the locker room that have been here a while who understand what it means and what it’s about, and I mean.”
