Smith has a knee problem and will be assessed by coach Clive Griffiths before a final decision is made on his availability.
Griffiths said: “The hard part will be picking a team to start against Barrow. Now it gets serious and we’re looking forward to the start.”

Murray said: “I’ve got a massive (selection) headache for this first game, but it’s nice to be in that position.”
