Match preview Vs Histon FC

Date: 12-04-08 Venue: Aggborough Kick off: 15:00hrs
We welcome one of the surprise sides in the League to Aggborough tomorrow when Histon FC pay their first ever visit here.  Promoted from the Conference South last season they have astounded everyone by approaching the finishing line within sight of the play-offs and before this game they will need eight points from three games to jump up to fifth place in the League.

The chances of achieving this seem very unlikely and we're going to have to be on our mettle to make sure that three of those points do not come at our expense.

Hopefully we'll see a repetition of that six goal hammering of Halifax tomorrow but that also seems unlikely with Histon being a much tougher proposition.  We lost the return fixture back in October and it was no surprise with an early glimpse of the lack of interest from us that was to make itself felt later on in the season.

It was only down to a late Matt Barnes-Homer goal that we gained a smidgen of respectability after he came on just after the start of the second half and then looked to be the best player for us on the day.

We'll probably be without Chris MacKenzie again for the game but so far Dean Coleman has done very well deputising for him and deserves to keep his place.  We should have no other injuries and it's now a matter of wondering which team Yates will go for this time.

Histon have just two injuries of note with both Neil Andrews and Craig Pope out for the remainder of the season.

I don't believe that we'll be seeing another cricket score in this game.  Histon are too good for that but I think that we should be looking at getting all three points.
