BRIGHTLINGSEA Regent will be without one of their key midfielders for tonight's Bostik League premier division encounter at title-chasing Haringey Borough.

Wide man Harvey Hodd is a definite non-starter due to the side strain he suffered in Saturday's 3-0 victory at home to Whitehawk.

The former Lowestoft Town player had to be replaced by Harry Morgan after just 22 minutes, at the Taydal Stadium.

R's boss Tom Rothery has no other fresh injury worries and there is also positive news regarding midfielder Morisi Gelashvilli.

The Georgian player broke a bone in his foot in Regent's 2-2 draw at Tonbridge Angels on January 5.

However, he has had an x-ray this morning and is hoping to be back at the beginning of March.

Haringey Borough are second in the premier division, just three points behind leaders Dorking Wanderers.

Regent are tenth but only three points outside the play-offs.

Tonight's clash at Coles Park is a 7.45pm kick-off.
