He could go straight into the side tomorrow evening with injury doubts surrounding Keith Briggs and James Vincent. Callum Gittings and Danny Pilkington were also both doubtful for the postponed game against Woking on Saturday (now to be played on March 26th) but they should both pass muster now and also be in contention of a start.
Telford are also looking for a new signing, or two, of their own in an effort to save themselves from possible relegation. They released striker Keiron St Amie today in an effort to pave the way and some more are expected to leave before anyone else comes in. One player looking over his shoulder must be the former Harriers defender Michael Briscoe. He has hardly played this season due to a bad back injury.
Telfords form is dire at the moment and they haven't won a game since the impressive 4-1 win at Dartford way, way back in October last year. The week before that they won at home to Woking so what has gone wrong?
Reading their message board, Bucks Chat, the blame seems to lie at the door of the manager Andy Sinton and their part time status. Seeing the way he failed to counter our all out attack in the 2-0 win at theirs back in November I can understand the feelings of the suffering fans and I fully expect Sinton to be just a memory very soon if the results fail to pick up.
On the injury front Telford will be hoping to have Ryan Valentine back tomorrow night after missing the last two games with a groin injury but midfielder Richard Davies is expected to be out of action for another four to five weeks because of a foot injury.
If the game is to go ahead tomorrow evening then we'll need it to stay dry from here on in and the wind outside as I write this should help to dry the pitch out a bit too. As for the result? Hopefully a foregone conclusion but we know what it's like playing a side that's struggling. Just hope we don't end up with egg on.
