Chapman fit and ready to return in goal for Leek Town

LEEK Town will have Ben Capman back in goal for Saturday’s visit to Peterborough Sports in Division One South of the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League

The ankle injury Chapman sustained during the recent 1-0 league defeat at Chasetown was not as bad as first thought.

The former Manchester City stopper would have played against Stamford on Saturday, if the had beaten the weather.

Ben’s recovery means I don’t have to prioritise a keeper, “said a relieved Blues boss Neil Baker.

However, Baker is still looking to bring in a central defender before Saturday’s trip south, as Scott Lycett is struggling with a calf injury and James Curley has returned to Midland League First Division outfit Uttoxeter Town.
