Team news for Skelmersdale match
Defensive veteran Dave Brown faces a late fitness test on Tuesday night to partner David Chadwick at the back against Skelmersdale with Rob Nugent out for a couple of weeks due to suspected cracked ribs sustained at Fleetwood.
Steve Spencer ably filled in at centre-half during Saturday’s victory at Chorley but the former Sheffield United youth team captain is unavailable for Tuesday’s game due to work commitments. Defender Mike Lomax has rejoined the Reds though for a second stint at the club and he may get called into the action if Brown cannot shake off his injury.
Dave Swarbrick is out with a bad back, Dale Whitehead has a damaged shoulder and the duo join Josh Howard, who is likely to be out until Christmas after undergoing a knee operation, on United’s injury list.
