HAYES & Yeading number one Clark Masters has handed manager Garry Haylock a major boost ahead of Saturday's visit of Luton Town by declaring himself as fully recovered from the blow to the head that saw him stretchered off against Mansfield.
Masters was due to take part in full training tomorrow night ahead of the clash against the Hatters after shrugging off the 11 th minute collision with Mansfield's Kyle Perry that left him temporarily concussed.
The former Aldershot and Brentford goalkeeper's departure inadvertently led to Hayes & Yeading dropping two points as his replacement between the sticks, Simon Overland, spilled a routine shot that allowed Gary Silk to net a last-minute equaliser.
And Masters is raring to go if Haylock gives him the green light to return between the sticks for a match that will see a bumper crowd at Church Road.
“I will be training tomorrow with the lads,” he said. “I had a headache, but that has been about it really. The last thing I remember was the ball being played across the box and me going down to claim it. I am okay now and I am desperate to play on Saturday, Simon came in on Saturday, but I would love to be back in against Luton.”
Masters is relishing the visit of promotion-chasing Luton – and he believes that Hayes can upset the odds by “winning ugly”.
“We will be up against it as we have a small squad and they have a lot of good players,” he admitted. “The first 10 minutes will be massively important for us, but if we start right and win our individual battles by doing the the ugly things right then we can get something out of the game.”
