Match preview Vs Weymouth

Date: 20-10-07 Venue: Aggborough Kick off: 15:00hrs
Our first real crisis of the season is looming with quite a few injuries, a suspension and a keeper that doesn't like playing at Aggborough.    We're also due to play the team that, last season, had one shot on target and scored while we had seventy three and couldn't.

Matthew Barnes-Homer Mark Creighton is missing for one game following his dismissal at Histon on Sunday and continuing injuries to Scott Bevan, Simon Russell and Jeff Kenna means they'll definitely be out while Paul Bignot has a slight groin strain but should be fit.    Add into that a new injury to James Constable following his non appearance in the second half last Sunday then we are down to the barebones of just fourteen outfield players for the visit of Weymouth tomorrow.

Constable looked to be carrying an injury from the first few minutes of the game and later rumours of his hamstring having been damaged in training have now been confirmed by the club.    Mark Yates has now said that he'll look to bringing a loan signing in by 5:00pm today but it's not known who that player is or in what position he'll play.

Matt Barnes-Homer came on for Beano at Histon and got himself two goals although the first was turned down because of an offside ruling.    He looked full of running and a prolonged spell in the side while Constable is out can only be good for him.

It's to be hoped that the loan will be a CREATIVE MIDFIELDER because that's what we need most of all.    We can struggle by in defence, goalkeepers are covered although it could be MacKenzies last game for us with his loan ending after this game, and we have MBH and Justin Richards as our strike force with Iyseden Christie almost ready to comeback so it HAS GOT TO BE a midfield maestro.

Looking at the squads below then again it looks like another club have got a far bigger squad than we have so one wonders where we are going wrong by persisting with such a small ensemble.    Saying that probably all down to finances.

It's not known how many of the Weymouth squad are fit to play because, like many clubs down this end, they keep their cards close.

Like us they are inconsistent beyond belief and win one minute but lose the next.    Thankfully our home form has now improved since the Torquay game and, all being well, I think we can snatch this one.

It just remains for Chris MacKenzie to shake off this Aggborough hoodoo.
