Hungerford take a Cambridge lesson

Diak John - set to miss two games

HUNGERFORD Town have two home games in the space of three days to reclaim their place in the Evo Stik League Southern’s Premier Division play-off zone.

They face Cambridge City at Bulpit Lane on Saturday and on Monday have bottom of the table Bideford as visitors as they look to emerge from their ‘worst’ league run in 16 months - two successive defeats!

“We’re still in the mix,” said manager Bobby Wilkinson, “and over the next five or six games, the teams around us are going to be taking points off each other.”

Wilkinson watched Cambridge win 3-1 at Chesham in midweek and was impressed with what he saw: “They played 3-5-2, which surprised me,” he said, “and they absolutely battered Chesham.”

Wilkinson will be forced into a defensive reshuffle with Gary Horgan missing one more game through suspension and Diak John out for 10 days after collecting a metatarsal injury at Hitchin.
