Workington Reds boss Darren Edmondson faces a selection dilemma ahead of tonight’s trip to Harrogate Town.
The Borough Park side ran out comprehensive winners against Colwyn Bay on Saturday but now have striker Jonny Wright available.
The striker missed the 4-1 victory, but is free to play in the game switched to York City’s Bootham Crescent ground to help Harrogate overcome a fixture backlog because of problems with their pitch.
Fellow striker Rod Owusu-Andrews is also back in contention after missing the Colwyn win due to other commitments.
Captain David Hewson and full-back Gari Rowntree are both doubtful after picking up knocks.
But new recruits Joe McGee, Joe Greenhalgh, Joseph St Juste and Tom Manship are fit to play.
Workington moved up to 16th with the win in Wales, with some impressive performances from Darren Edmondson’s new players.
Despite the four-point deduction, Reds have 27 points – seven more than the clubs filling the relegation zone.
Mid-table Harrogate have signed ex-Chelsea midfielder Michael Woods, who cost the Premier League side £5 million.
The 22-year-old England under-16, 17 and 19 international started his career at Leeds United, and also had spells at Yeovil and Doncaster.
Town boss Simon Weaver said: “Workington will be tricky, but they’ve lost a few players since we beat them 2-1 last month.”
