JOSH Lennie is on stand-by to make just his second Hayes & Yeading United start on Saturday with number one Lee Harrison struggling to shake off a thigh injury.
The experienced Harrison (pictured) was forced off after 42 minutes of Monday's excellent draw at Luton Town and that may cause him to miss Saturday's visit of David Livermore's men.
United will assess 38-year-old Harrison's injury tomorrow to see if he is fit enough to play, but Lennie will deputise again if he does not make it.
And boss Garry Haylock will have no qualms about handing former Brentford youth goalkeeper Lennie another go between the sticks after his impressive second-half at Kenilworth Road.
“Josh has come in and done really well, I am very pleased with that,” said Haylock. “We will have to wait until Friday and make a decision on Lee, but if he does not make it then I will not have a problem with it.
“We are going to leave Lee until he is 100 per cent right now.”
Meanwhile, Ahmed Deen is ruled out due to international duty as he is in the Sierra Leone squad for tomorrow's African Nations Cup qualifier in Egypt.
Hayes & Yeading defender Adam Bygrave faces the club that he quit during the summer – and he admits that it was an unhappy 18 months with the Cambridgeshire outfit.
“I would rather be at Hayes and I was happy when my move was finalised,” he said. “I was part-time at Histon and I did not enjoy that and their style of play was very different to here as they played very direct. Every time I got the ball I just punted it so I am adjusting to it here and it will take time.”
- HAYES & Yeading United are offering half price entry (£7) for fans with season tickets at professional clubs on Saturday.
With no Premier League or Championship fixtures this weekend due to the international break, QPR fan James Doe came up with the idea of a national Non League Day and Hayes & Yeading are embracing the idea for the visit of Histon on Saturday.
