Midweek: Bracknell Town and Ascot United away, weather expected to play its part

Midweek: Bracknell Town and Ascot United away, weather expected to play its part

Bracknell Town and Ascot United both have scheduled away fixtures in the Uhlsport Hellenic Premier League on Tuesday night, but both could be affected by the current weather.

The BBC weather suggests rain will continue over night and remain dry tomorrow – and obviously we’ll let you know as soon as we know about whether midweek matches will go ahead.

Bracknell Town

Fresh from a pulverising of Thatcham Town and a belittling of Thame United, the Robins head to Henley Town looking to make it three wins in a row.

Mark Tallentire will have a doubt over midfielder George Short who was taken to hospital on Saturday after a head injury while Callum Whitty missed the game with illness.

You would expect the eleven who started against Thatcham to go again – with Joe Grant replacing Short on the wing.

Henley are second bottom with one win in five – an Oxfordshire County Cup match on Saturday – but have already frustrated Bracknell this season with a 1-1 draw at Bottom Meadow.

Ascot United

Editors note: This match has been postponed

The Yellamen were surprisingly beaten 3-1 on Saturday by Brackley Town Saints, but have an opportunity to arrest their slide down the table with a visit to third bottom Oxford City Nomads.

It all depends on what sort of side Paul McGrotty and Jeff Lamb can get out, the last two league games saw a 2-2 draw with Highmoor-IBIS and an impressive 2-1 win at Thatcham Town.
