Hampton & Richmond Borough's Blue Square South survival hopes suffered a blow as skipper Matt Ruby suffered a suspected dislocated knee in Tuesday's FA Trophy exit at Northwich Victoria.

Ruby, who could be ruled out for the rest of the season, was stretchered off in the opening minutes of the clash which the Beavers went on to lose 4-1.

Hot shot Dave Tarpey's strike on the hour was the only high point on a miserable night for boss Mark Harper's men.
