Sunday Sport: Old Boys without the services of two key defenders

LEEK CSOB will start the New Year in the Staffordshire County Senior League without two key defenders ahead of a difficult cup-tie.

Centre half Drew Bennett faces having an eye operation while fellow defender Sam Wainwright, pictured, has been injured in training.

Wainwright suffered a leg injury in a training session which was organised after Saturday’s League Challenge Cup semi-final at home to Wolstanton United, the cup holders, was postponed.

Providing the waterlogged Pointon Park pitch dries out in time the cup-tie will be played on Wednesday night (7.30pm).

The winners will face Redgate Clayton or last season’s beaten finalists Cheadle Town in the final.
