Bracknell Town are on the road again on Saturday looking to put a heavy defeat at Ware last weekend behind them.

The Robins face FC Romania, a side they beat 6-0 at Larges Lane earlier in the season, but manager Geoff Warner faces a few headaches in terms of team selection prior to 3pm.

Warner said to Football in Bracknell: “We have Carl Davies out injured now along with Dave Hancock who is still out.

“Gavin James is still out, Ryan Parsons is suspended and both Joe Grant and Sean Moore are away, however Seb Bowerman is back after missing last weekend.”

Speaking about the defeat last weekend, Warner was more upbeat. He said: “It was a bit of a jolt last week but we had a team meeting Monday and then trained well. We’ll train again tonight and we’ll be ready to go.”

Binfield manager Roger Herridge has a few headaches of his own having admitted this week he was looking to get one or two more players in to cope with a lengthy injury list.

The Moles will travel to Holmer Green in the Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier Division without Jack Thompson-Wheeler who will be a long term absentee while attacker Josh Howell is injured and Carlo Santoro is a doubt.

In addition centre back Gary Smith and forward Eddie Lee are both unavailable.

Ascot United are aiming for an eighth win in a row when they travel to Lydney Town. The Hellenic Premier leaders only have one absentee in captain Louis Bouwers who is suspended following a red card in the win over Fairford Town.

Rob Davies step 6 preview is here, but there’s good news for Wokingham & Emmbrook who should have Jake White back from injury, though youngster Ellis Day is doubtful after picking up a knock.
