Ascot United welcome Cobham to the Racecourse on Tuesday evening in the Combined Counties League. Normal rules apply – tickets on-line in advance here and will not be available on the gate – and spectators are advised the far side of the ground and the area behind the goal at The Racecourse end will NOT be available for viewing due to ongoing groundworks to replace some of the fencing with gating. Our online matchday programme can be found here.
Cobham arrive mid-table, having taken seven points from six games, and off the back of a league win against Badshot Lea before an FA Vase triumph at Crawley Down last Saturday.
With Ascot’s league games averaging at least 4 goals per game compared with Cobham approaching the same mark, the odds are on a goalfest (well, 4 goals anyway…) – but that’s probably cursed it…!
Ryan DeBattista has been in good scoring form for The Hammers with five goals from six games; the home faithful will recall his handful of appearances for The Yellamen a couple of seasons ago. Meanwhile, Elliot Carey (foot) remains a strong doubt for Ascot and it remains to be seen whether Louis Bouwers and Taylor Morgan (hamstring) are fully fit for a place in the starting 11.
Sutton Common Rovers won on Monday night to extend their lead at the top, whereas Tuesday’s programme (below) looks well set for the fellow pacesetters to cut the deficit as Abbey Rangers, Hanworth Villa, Southall and Spelthorne will all be expecting to win their games against teams from the bottom half of the table.
Match report to follow later this evening. Picture is Dan Bailey scoring on Saturday (shooting-stars.co.uk)
