Ben Whitfield Following that 'revert to form' defeat at Chester on Tuesday evening we now have to start all over again at home to Aldershot Town tomorrow afternoon.  We had high hopes of building on our only win of the season, at home to Woking two weeks ago, with a first away win in Cheshire but things didn't go to plan and it was three goals let in instead of three points taken out.

We had originally refused to change the date of the Chester game to the Saturday because Head Coach Hockaday wanted to spend maximum time on the training ground in an effort to hammer home how important it was to the team to perform to their very best on the pitch.  They couldn't have been listening very closely then.

Now we have to hope that the home win wasn't a blip and we can do it again tomorrow.

We had one piece of good news this week with Ben Whitfield (right) being allowed by his parent club, Bournemouth, to stay until January and that gives us at least nine games for him to form a creative partnership with Dino Fazlić.  We have seen how good this kid is going to be one day but hopefully not good enough that his owners will want him back or to keep him on once his contract runs out.

We'll be without Jordan Tunnicliffe after the club released the news that he faces a few months out of the game with a bad hamstring injury and possibly also Luke Maxwell again with a minor injury.  While not injury related Matt Barnes-Homer will not be allowed to play against his parent club, Aldershot, tomorrow either.  It's all a bit petty if you ask me because it was their decision not to play him and send him here in the first place.

Aldershot will be coming to Aggborough on the back of a home defeat to Lincoln City on Wednesday evening.  They bought in a young loan striker from Stevenage just before the game and Dipo Akinyemi produced the goods with their only goal in the 2-1 loss.

Every ones favourite WUM Richard Brodie missed that game through suspension but may still miss our game with a suspected injury that could see him be rested a little longer.  They have a couple of injuries.  One is to Joe Oastler following an ankle operation during the summer and won't be back at full fitness for three to four weeks and the other is Jack Saville with a hamstring injury.  He played against Lincoln with it the other night but aggravated it and will now probably be rested tomorrow.

As with all our games this is going to be yet another tough one to call and a few weeks ago we didn't think we would get anything from the Woking game but we did.  I'm going to stick my neck out here and say that we could be looking at yet another home win.  Or a draw.  Or a defeat!
