Feeney: Out injured for Pilgrims
Team news for Tuesday's League Two clash between Macclesfield and Plymouth at Moss Rose Ground.
Wales Under-21 international Elliot Hewitt is the latest addition to Macclesfield's injury list ahead of the crucial clash.
Hewitt took a heavy kick to his leg as Gary Simpson's side drew 1-1 with Oxford to end a run of eight consecutive defeats on Saturday, but the highly-rated full-back is not expected to be a long-term resident of the Silkmen's well-stocked treatment room.
Ross Draper (broken metatarsal) and Lewis Chalmers (hernia) are continuing their rehabilitation at the National Sport Centre at Lilleshall, while ankle injuries are responsible for keeping fellow midfielders Dwayne Mattis and Tom Fisher, along with defender Paul Morgan, on the sidelines.
Bolton loanee Mark Connolly made his debut alongside Ben Futcher in the heart of defence against the U's and Nat Brown could contest a place at centre-back if he recovers from a back problem.
Another debutant on Saturday was goalkeeper Richard O'Donnell, on loan from Sheffield Wednesday, following injuries to Jose Veiga (thigh) and Steve Collis (shoulder).
Tony Diagne (hamstring) is out and Carl Tremarco serves the final game of a three-match suspension.
Plymouth are hoping to have Joe Lennox back from illness in time for the trip to Macclesfield in npower League Two on Tuesday.
Lennox was kept away from the Pilgrims' training ground last week to avoid affecting the rest of the Plymouth squad and has not featured since February 4.
Striker Warren Feeney will not play a part. Feeney has been struggling with a calf injury which has also ruled him out of international duty for Northern Ireland in their friendly match with Norway this week.
Defender Onismor Bhasera will not be available to Fletcher as he is involved in Zimbabwe's clash with Burundi. Robbie Williams filled in for Bhasera during the goalless draw with Dagenham at the weekend and he is likely to keep his place for the trip to Moss Rose.
