With injuries still a concern, a somewhat depleted Fen Tigers welcome back to West Row the Kent Kings.

Things looked like they were going to be even worse for the Fen Tigers after a nasty looking spill for young Josh Bates in last night’s John Berry Memorial meeting at Ipswich, but thankfully it seems not as bad as it first looked.

Club chairman Kevin Jolly said: “My heart was in my mouth when Josh fell, I thought here we go again another injury! But speaking with him this morning he is having x-rays today, but says he is sure nothing is broken and he will be all right for Sunday.

“That is great news for us as we are a little depleted in every sense at the moment, with Stefan and Liam out, Aaron missing the meeting for family reasons and Nathan still on the road back to full fitness.

“That said I could not be prouder of what we have achieved to date, we try to install steel and team spirit in the lads to help them deal with times like this, and the excellent results achieved recently on the road back this up.

“We must now transfer this into the next two home meetings to keep up our challenge at the top of the table.

“Gareth Isherwood will replace Aaron on Sunday whilst Danno Verge covers the second reserve position as he did last Monday, we won’t take Kent lightly but I expect all three points from the meeting.”
