Four to go and Hungerford are fourth

James Rusby - fit again

HUNGERFORD TOWN are ignoring Histon’s confirmed relegation and will be ramping up the preparation for their trip to the Cambridge side in the Evo Stik League Southern’s Premier Division on Saturday.

Hungerford’s won over Merthyr last Saturday enabled them to benefit from other results, and they make the trip still in fourth spot with four matches to play.

“We have given ourselves a right good chance,” said manager Bobby Wilkinson. “But this will be a tough game. I don’t care if they’re relegated or not, we went there last season when they were bottom and we lost.

“They have a young side and try to play football, and they have two or three experienced players as well. We will be treating them very seriously and I’ll take a 1-0 win in the 90th mnute.”

Hungerford have defenders Jon Boardman and James Rusby fit again with winger Alan O’Brien the only injury doubt.

Thatcham Town after sidelined with only two Hellenic League games remaining, the first a Tuesday night trip to Bracknell Town.

Tadley Calleva picked up a Sydenhams Wessex League Division One on Wednesday night from a 2-2 draw at Christchurch, twice coming from behind with James Tennant maintaining his hot streak with another brace.

Tadley now have a run of two home games with Pewsey Vale visiting Barlows Park on Saturday and Andover New Street the visitors on Tuesday night.
