Cirencester Town pre-match news
Andy Bourne, who suffered a slight calf problem during Tuesday's game with RC Warwick, is a slight doubt for tomorrow's home clash with Cirencester Town.
Manager Jon Newsome will be checking Bourne's fitness tomorrow morning before naming his side.
Danny Hobby is likely to replace Bourne should it prove necessary. Hobby came on as a substitute against RC Warwick and was impressive in midfield and would be the only change from Tuesday's starting line-up.

Mark Peters will be given another run with the reserves to regain his match fitness and young defenders James Lewsley and Lee Withers are regaining their fitness with Lewsley training on Thursday.

Hopefully striker Chris White should begin training next week and although Stuart Evans is improving he is still quite a way from playing.

Newsome hope that his side can make the Moat Ground a fortress. He said; "Teams should not come here and take three points away with them. Coming to the Moat Ground should be as difficult for clubs as possible and to be honest, we have a squad good enough to do that.

"With so many away games coming up, it's vital we get the points on board at home. Out of the next seven games we only have two at home and we need to get points from them both.

"We definitely needed a result on Tuesday; we needed a win. The game tomorrow is a big game for us and if we can get another result it will set us up for the game at Bedworth on Monday.

"After tomorrow we only have one other home game before the end of September and we have a bit of a break because of the FA Cup, so we need a result to keep us in touch with the early leaders.

"I will not really be looking forward to Monday until the final whistle tomorrow and whether I make any changes will depend on how they play tomorrow.

"The lads should be fit enough to deal with two games in three days, but there is the possibility of picking up a few knocks."
