Binfield travel to Windsor on Tuesday night in the Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier Division with the two sides in fourth and fifth in the table (ko 7.45pm).

Windsor, under new boss Mark Cooper have rallied after a tough start to the season that started with the departure of long serving boss Mick Woodham, but have picked up nine points from 12 in their last four matches.

Binfield meanwhile have only played one league match since their surprise defeat at Tuffley Rovers, a 1-0 win at Royal Wootton Bassett Town on Saturday.

Moles boss Roger Herridge said: “Apart from Asa Povey we have a full squad to pick from. Our new signing Elliott Legg is in the squad”.

Badshot Lea vs Ascot United

Cherry Red Records Combined Counties League Premier Division – 7.45pm

The Yellamen travel to Badshot Lea for the third time this season after two FA Cup fixtures during Ascot’s time on the road and it’s a quick return for new signing Liam Flanighan to his old club.

The former Badshot Lea centre back played for Ascot for the first time on Saturday as Jamie Tompkins side won their first game since returning home to the Racecourse Ground.

Speaking to Football in Berkshire, Tompkins said: “We have more players returning from injury and Tuesday’s squad is now bolstered with the additions of Liam, Luqman Kassim and Mario Banovic. Aiden Higgs is serving a suspension and will feature at the weekend.”

Burnham vs Reading City

Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier Division – 7.45pm

The Citizens have seen two players depart this week in Devonn Reid and striker Yashwa Romeo but reinforcements have arrived in Mitchell Parker and full back Nico Cammock.

For Reading City manager Simon Johnson, it has arguably been his sides toughest run of the season so far with three league defeats on the bounce, they still though sit sixth in the Premier Division.

Ahead of the game, Johnson said: “Nico Cammock, Kai Stubbs Dan Davies and Aaron De Rama unavailable. Steve Lee is suspended and Ellis Cowd is still out injured.”

Easington Sports vs Virginia Water

Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier Division – 7.30pm

Ceri Jones’ side have picked up a couple of much needed points in their last few Premier Division games and when they’ve been watched by the FiB team, don’t look like a side that will spend to much time in the lower reaches of the table this season.

A win on Tuesday night for Virginia Water at promoted Easington Sports would see them leapfrog the home side and could lift them as high as 13th though that depends a little on the outcome of Flackwell Heath’s trip to fellow Buckinghamshire side Holmer Green.

Jones said of his available squad: “Jack Simmons returns from injury, although Marc Lansdowne is out due to work commitments, and Finn Evered a week further before his return from injury.”

He added: “It’s a little odd we’ve had no Saturday game for few weeks, rather than a journey like this midweek. But another tough game against Easington ahead.”

Penn & Tylers Green vs Holyport

Uhlsport Hellenic League Division One East – 7.45pm

Rob Davies will be on hand at Holloways Park in Beaconsfield as Penn host in-form Holyport for only their second home game since the 28th September.

Penn lost to Wokingham & Emmbrook on Saturday but sit third while Port beat Didcot Town Development 4-0 and have games in hand as they target the top four.

Port boss Derek Sweetman said ahead of the fixture: “We have a few missing due to the half term as well as injuries and flu bugs.”
