Midfield boost for Bracknell Town in Bostik League run-in

All the weekend team news as Binfield solve goalkeeper crisis and the latest from Windsor

Midfield boost for Bracknell Town in Bostik League run-in

Bracknell Town were handed a boost ahead of last weeks Bostik League South Central Division One win over Tooting & Mitcham United with the return of Seb Bowerman to the starting line up.

Now manager Goeff Warner has confirmed Kensley Maloney will return to the squad as Bracknell Town head to league leaders Hayes & Yeading United for a crucial fixture in the run-in.

The two sides drew 3-3 in a tightly contested match back in December at Larges Lane with Bowerman scoring twice on the day and both he and Maloney should be fit for Saturday’s fixture.

Warner added that Ash Artwell and Ryan Parsons both returned to training this week but Jordan Brown still had four games of a five game ban to serve.

Bracknell will also retain goalkeeper Chris Grace on the bench for the fixture. Explaining the move, Warner said: “If things go wrong at this stage I can’t risk it, even if an outfield player like Sean Moore has done well as cover before. At the moment I’ve got a goalkeeper who’s prepared to bide his time and help the team.”
