Donaldson shakes off hip problem
Donaldson had to be substituted after an hour of last weekend's home win over Darlington but scans have revealed the damage was not as serious as the club initially feared and he will be in contention. However, skipper Mat Mitchel-King will be out for around a month after he suffered ankle ligament damage in the same game. Harry Worley will deputise for Mitchel-King at centre-half and transfer-listed defender Patrick Ada is now unlikely to leave Gresty Road this month as he is needed as cover. Midfielder James Bailey is closing in on a return after problems with an abdominal muscle.
