Squad news: Slough set for trip to Weymouth

Jon Underwood names the squad to take on fellow promotion hopefuls Weymouth at the Bob Lucas Stadium tomorrow.

We look forward to a big game tomorrow at Weymouth, which we know is a tough place to go but at the same time a ground we like to visit and it's always a decent game down there, writes Jon Underwood.

With the two sides locked on 60 points and both currently in a play-off position, it adds some extra spice this time too and I'm sure we'll see a decent crowd tomorrow.

We have a lot of respect for Mark Molesey and the side he has put together down there. It's no surprise to us that they are where they are in the table in their first season back at this level and they are a serious challenger for promotion.

Obviously the Coronavirus is on everyone's mind at the moment and we are at the mercy of any decisions taken regarding football in the coming weeks and months but we have to prepare as normal. We did take the decision to keep two of our players away from training last night after they reported "cold" symptoms but both have said they are improving this morning and there is nothing to suggest either have anything to worry about.

On the positive side Ryan Bird trained last night and returns to the squad tomorrow after a few weeks out but we will be without George Wells, who is at a close friend's wedding.

Scott Davies and Paul Hodges picked up knocks on Tuesday night and didn't train last night but we are hopeful that both can be involved tomorrow and we will choose from the following 16-man squad.

Squad: Jack Turner, Josh Jackman, Sean Fraser, Guy Hollis, Mark Nisbet, Ryan Bird, Sam Togwell, Lee Togwell, Scott Davies, Matt Lench, Max Worsfold, Warren Harris, Paul Hodges, Dan Roberts, Ben Harris, Manny Williams.
