Maidstone United manager George Elokobi says deadline signing Michael Klass has a hamstring injury

Maidstone United new boy Michael Klass has joined the club’s injured list.

Klass, who signed from National League South promotion rivals Worthing before last week’s transfer deadline, has a hamstring problem.

It cut short an impressive debut at Eastbourne on Good Friday, with Klass substituted at half-time, and saw him miss out on the Easter Monday draw against Welling.

Taunton will climb out of the relegation zone if they win.

“We’ve been in this position before where we’ve played two games in three days,” said Elokobi.

“We played Dartford in the FA Trophy and
