The Silkmen could be without Martin Gritton, who has been suffering with Tonsilitis, on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Ian Brightwell is set to name a new captain.

According to reports from the official website, Gritton has been taking antibiotics to clear up the illness and he hopes to be fit for the weekend, but the former Lincoln man has not been able to train fully this week.

Ian Brightwell has also announced that he is set to name his captain this week. Current incumbent Dave Morley is out injured until October, and many feel the responsibility of the armband has impaired his performances.

Kevin McIntyre and Danny Swailes seem the top picks for captain, assuming, of course, that it doesn’t remain with Dave Morley.
