But he returned for Tuesday night’s 2-1 defeat at Tamworth, figuring from the first whistle to last.

“He’s fine. He saw the doctor on Saturday. He wasn’t fit to play Saturday but ok (for Tamworth),” said boss Murray.

“He’s trained and worked hard. He put a good shift in.

“He’s 100 per cent and he’s fine.”

Murray was also pleased to see Kabongo Tshimanaga score his first league goal of the season on Tuesday after coming on at half time.

He added: “He’s a good player and he’s got lots of attributes.

“He’s very raw but we need him to learn the overall game to start more.

“We always feel we can create chances with him. It’s a case of building him up.”
