Stanningley’s injury crisis has worsened ahead of tonight’s visit of Saddleworth Rangers in National Conference Division One (7.30pm).

Jack Sykes (calf), Ash Yarrow (fractured collarbone), Harris Stockdale, Stephen Welton (both hamstring), Joe Phipps (ankle) and Jermaine Ruan (knee) have been ruled out so several players could be promoted from the in-form Alliance side. Jack Smith has been cleared to return after recovering from concussion.
