VAUXHALL Motors boss Carl Macauley is gearing his players up for two testing games in three days.
Weather permitting, the Motormen host Redditch United at Rivacre Park tomorrow and then make the long trip to Worcester City on Monday.
Macauley's squad will be stretched to the limit tomorrow as Mike Garrity (hamstring) and Tom Rooney (groin) are injured while Lee Furlong and Lee Dames are suspended.
Rooney, however, may be fit in time to feature at Worcester and Dames will have completed his ban.
Macauley said: 'The games are in very close proximity and we have major selection headaches with players unavailable. I am trying to bring players in, but clubs want silly money at this stage of the season so it is proving difficult to acquire the players I need as the fixture list becomes more frenzied.'
One player making his way out of the Rivacre Park exit door is keeper Tim Dittmer, who has signed for UniBond League club Radcliffe Borough for a small fee.
Dittmer lost the number one jersey to Sean Lake towards the end of last season and has already been out on loan this campaign to both Burscough and Radcliffe.
Motors' Rivacre Park pitch was covered in snow yesterday and club officials were due to inspect the playing surface during last night's training session. n Vauxhall lost 3-2 at Farsley Celtic on Saturday to a goal scored deep into injury time.
The visitors had grabbed the lead on the half-hour mark when Tom Field hit a 20-yard strike beyond the reach of Celtic keeper Tom Morgan.
Three minutes later it was 1-1 when Gareth Grant went round Sean Lake in the Motors goal and squared the ball to Ryan Sugden to equalise.
Celtic took the lead just before the break when Motors failed to clear their lines from a corner and Grant profited.
After Lee Furlong and Farsley's Chris Stabb were red-carded on the hour mark for an altercation, Motors drew level on 74 minutes through Karl O'Donnell.
A draw looked on the cards but then Simeon Bambrook hit home a direct free kick from 20 yards deep into added time.
