Bognor have been hit by a fresh blow after Chris Breach fractured a foot in training on Thursday.

The Albion youngster, who is on loan at Nyewood Lane for the season, is likely to be out for between six and eight weeks.

It leaves the Rocks short of defenders after David Wright was released earlier in the week.

Manager Jack Pearce said: "I only found out last night and when I heard I couldn't believe it. Just as we appeared to be turning the corner something like this happens and sets us back again but we will just have to get on with it.

"The really annoying thing is that we haven't got any cover at centre back after letting Dave go so I will have to ring around to try to bring somebody in on loan.

"Christmas is a busy period and we can't afford not to get a replacement in for Chris as soon as possible."

If Pearce is unsuccessful midfielder Guy Rutherford is likely to slot into the centre of defence for Monday's visit of Havant and Waterlooville.

The Rocks will be hoping to improve on the 5-1 drubbing they received at West Leigh Park in the Conference Cup two weeks ago as they attempt to end a run of six league games without a win.
