UNITED will have stronger wing options for the weekend trip to Fleetwood Town on the opening day of the League 2 season.
Billy Bodin has come through unscathed from playing in Wednesday’s 1-0 defeat for the Wales Under-21 side against Armenia and Lloyd Macklin has recovered from a knee problem.
The only injury concerns remaining for manager Martin Ling are Danny Stevens, who is missing with a thigh strain, and Saul Halpin’s mystery ankle complaint.
“The team is looking a bit better than Tuesday night,” said Martin. “Two of the boys unavailable [against Leicester] will come back, which is Billy Bodin and Lloyd Macklin.
“Billy came through the Welsh Under 21 game and Lloyd trained today, so we are dependent on whether there is any reaction to his injury. That leaves us with Saul Halpin and Danny Stevens as our only injury concerns.
“Damian Davey felt it would be around three to six weeks and without putting the pressure on him, Damian is normally at the top end of his assessment in getting players back, which is massively important. Danny could maybe get back for the two home games next week. He definitely won’t make Fleetwood.
“Saul is seeing a specialist and it is a puzzling injury deep in the ankle. We don’t really know the problem as yet and it will be down to the scans.”
