Injury concerns for Bracknell Town and all the Saturday team news

Bracknell Town return to BetVictor Isthmian League South Central Division One action as Ashford Town (Middlesex) hop across the border to Larges Lane.

The Robins have had a mixed start to the season winning one, drawing one and losing one of their opening three league games, though they did advance in the FA Cup with an impressive 5-0 win at Bournemouth,

Boss Sam Lock though has some injury concerns going in to the fixture against a Tangerines side yet to pick up a point this season.

Speaking to Football in Berkshire he said: “The Bank Holiday weekend hit us quite hard on the injury front. Dan Price looks like he will miss the best part of September and October after picking up a knee injury against Bournemouth and both Caden Genovesi and Dan Bayliss will miss this weekends fixtures after coming off on Monday with ankle injuries.

“On a positive note Shane Cooper-Clark should hopefully be available this weekend having missed last week.”

When asked, Lock, who as well as Price is missing Lee Barney up front, suggested he was looking at bringing in another forward: “We will look to sign a forward tonight [Friday]. It’s down to them to work hard and take the opportunity offered to them. Will then take stock after the weekend.”

Eversley & California face an FA Vase away day at Abingdon United. Manager Matt Angell has some decisions to make saying: “We welcome Callum Hartin into the squad at the expense of Sam Knight, Ian Brooks is unavailable as at a wedding and Jack Kittelsen unfortunately got injured last night so will miss out but happy to have Charlie Scope back into the squad after being away on Monday.

“The squad is in real good spirits and looking forward to the game which will be the first FA Vase outing for some of the players within the squad.”

Sandhurst Town head to Clanfield 85 after a hard fought six points over the Bank Holiday weekend. Michael Herbert said: “Owen Davies and Carl Prestige return to the squad after missing the game at Eversley on Monday. Apart from that, all the same.”
