Dan Harding is a doubt for Whitehawk’s FA Cup replay at Stourbridge on Monday.

The former Albion left-back went off at half-time in today’s 3-2 defeat at home to East Thurrock in National League south with a calf problem.

Hawks boss Richard Hill will check on him tomorrow ahead of the trip to the West Midlands, when a second-round tie at home to Northampton will be at stake.

Sergio Torres was rested today and should be available for the Cup tie.

Hawks were 3-0 down after 26 minutes but replied in first-half added time through Ahmed Abdulla after a crisp combination of short passes around the edge of the box.

Danny Mills ran on to a ball over the top to add a second on 79 minutes but Hill’s men could not snatch a point.

Sam Higgins, Joe Gardner and Tom Wright, with a free-kick which went through the wall, scored for East Thurrock.

Adri Munoz was given the nod in goal ahead of Lucas Covolan for Hawks in the absence of Ross Flitney.


That is likely to remain the case on Monday as Flitney completes a two-match ban.

Hawks' defeat was their second at home since the controversial 1-1 draw with Stourbridge last Saturday. They have leaked seven goals in those two games.

Hill said: "You can't start a football match like that. It's bad enough conceding one goal - but conceding three? As a team we didn't defend well enough."
