Damian Allen and Ryan Cresswell are approaching full fitness after injury and could also play some part at Blundell Park. But Andy Bishop has suffered a setback in his recovery from an operation to repair both abductor muscles and remain sidelined with fellow frontman Danny Carlton. Carlton is expected back in late January to early February as he recovers from a serious Achilles injury. Knill is expecting his players to step up their promotion challenge now that players are returning from injury. The Shakers are only out of the play-off places on goal difference and Knill said: "Now there are no excuses because we have players back."
