Halesowen Town manager Morell Maison is sweating over the fitness of star striker Eldon Maquemba for Saturday's home clash with Merthyr Tydfil.

The Portugese frontman has been missing since the home fixture with Team Bath on New Years Day with a medial knee ligament strain.

Maquemba was doing some light exercise prior to Tuesday evening's home fixture with Gloucester City, which was abandoned at half-time due to a water-logged pitch with the score at 1-1.

The manager had no qualms with the decision made by the officials but was instead focusing in on Saturday's clash and is keeping his fingers crossed Maquemba will be available for selection.

He said: "At the moment he's touch and go but if he doesn't make the Merthyr game he will be back for the Yate match.

"We have sorely missed Eldon because he runs the channels so well and with such pace added to the fact he is always likely to pop up with a goal."

The Yeltz sit second in the BGB Premier Division table after a 2-1 win at home to Hitchin last Saturday.

Victory was secured late on thanks to a Shane Paul strike.
