The defender was involved in a clash of heads during Boro’s FA Cup exit at Stourbridge earlier this month, losing four teeth and breaking his nose.

But joint-manager Meechan said: “Danny is saying he is available for the weekend, which is testament to him. It wouldn’t surprise me if he turned up in a crash helmet ready to play. But that goes for all the lads in the dressing room.

“They are all pulling in the same direction and determined to take this club forward.”

Rushall Olympic can go back to the top of the Southern Central Premier with victory at home to AFC Rushden & Diamonds. The Pics have suffered back-to-back defeats to fall from the summit to fourth, but the three sides above them are not in league action this weekend.

“To sit here with just three defeats from our opening 11 league games and be three points off top spot at this stage of the season is testament to the start that we have made,” said manager Liam McDonald. “We would have taken this going into the season, so there is plenty for us to feel positive about.”

Chasetown host Cleethorpes Town in Northern One South East, while Halesowen Town are on the road at Biggleswade Town in Southern Central One.
