Both Hungerford Town boss Ian Herring and Slough Town co-manager Neil Baker have reported no squad changes for Tuesday night’s league encounter.

Herring said he had a fully fit squad available to him while Baker said: “It will be exactly same squad we had on Saturday as none of the players we had missing are back.”

It’s early season cup action for Wokingham & Emmbrook and Woodley Untied. The Sumas are off to Penn & Tylers Green in the Bluefin Sport Challenge Cup and have a couple of players missing according to Dan Bateman.

He said: “Joe Cummuskey is suspended and injuries to Ellis Day and Aaron Rowland will keep them out for a little while. Apart from that we are looking strong.”
