Ascot United face a tough task on Saturday when they travel to Ashford Town’s stadium to face Southall (3pm). Entry is cash-on-the-gate at Short Lane (Robert Parker Stadium, Stanwell, TW19 7BH).
Southall won last season’s reverse fixture 1-0 courtesy of ex-Yellamen David Pitt, and were one of the chasers when the league ended; Southall lying sixth with games in hand.
This season they have won 2 and lost 1, although the defeat – a midweek 4-1 home reverse – came against much fancied Hanworth Villa.
A point would see the Yellamen replace Knaphill at the top of the table in the day’s only league game as all other teams are involved in FA Vase qualifying round action; Southall and Ascot having received byes. Ascot will also be hoping for full fitness as Aiden Higgs, Harry Laflin (hamstring) and Louis Bouwers (knee) were all hobbling in and around the pitch on Tuesday evening.
