Iron waiting on trio's fitness ahead of Darts trip

Braintree Town boss Alan Devonshire is sweating on the fitness of three key players ahead of this weekend’s double-header of fixtures.
The Iron have a Skrill Premier appointment at Dartford on Saturday, followed by Monday’s home match against Barnet (both 3pm).
However, there is a chance they could be missing both striker Dan Holman and right-back Ryan Peters.
Both suffered injuries in last weekend’s 1-0 defeat at home to Kidderminster Harriers.
Holman hurt his shoulder, while Peters injured his knee and had to be substituted in the 69th minute.
“Both have to be considered doubtful for our match on Saturday,” said Devonshire.
“We’ll see how they are but it might be that our first match of the weekend comes too soon for them.
“The same goes for James Mulley, who’s still recovering from the hamstring injury he picked up on the opening day (at Hereford United).”
