Looking Ahead: Maidenhead United
Written by Neil Baker
Slough look forward to a huge local derby on Tuesday evening.
After a week of frustration with the postponements of the games at Cinderford and Biggleswade, we can now switch our attentions to a big local derby against Maidenhead United in the Berks and Bucks Senior Cup with a final against Hungerford Town to play for.
It goes without saying that the Berks and Bucks Cup is usually low down the priority list for both teams at the start of the season, however with one game to get through to the final and with both teams having not played for 10 days, I am sure the game will take on a greater emphasis for both clubs, and that you will see two teams looking to win local bragging rights.
Maidenhead are having a fantastic season, and look odds on favourites for promotion to the Conference National, therefore we no doubt start as underdogs.
Having had a decent training session on Saturday we come into the game in pretty good shape. We will again be without Warren Harris due to his knee injury, however he is coming along nicely and we might see him back by next week.
Josh Jackman may be out for 4-6 weeks having had an operation on his hand to reset one of his fingers.
We have had James Granger, who has recently been released from Eastleigh, training with us. He was on loan at Poole Town at the start of the season, and is an attacking midfielder/wide player. He has signed forms for us whilst we look to assess our options, and will come into the squad tomorrow.
We have also put on league forms Jesse Wilson, a centre half who has come over from Ascot United. He will train with us and also register with Burnham where we can take a better look at him.
Squad from: Mark Scott, Nathan Smart, Sean Fraser, Guy Hollis, Dan Hicks, Mark Nisbet, Paul Stonehouse, James Dobson, Lewis Putman, Nathan Webb, Simon Dunn, Lee Togwell, James Granger, Charlie Moone, Chris Flood and Gavin James.
