We take a break from league action and welcome Paul Doswell and his Havant side to Arbour Park tomorrow as we enter the FA Trophy at the Second Round stage, writes Jon Underwood.
I think it's fair to say that neither management team was particularly delighted with this draw - but now the match is upon us we are really looking forward to what should be a great game. Matches between the two sides are never dull affairs and I'm sure this will be no exception!
We know Havant are a very good side but obviously we will take confidence from our excellent recent win down there. They have been in very good form in the league since that game, despite some significant injury problems, and a tough and close game is expected as always.
We are pleased to welcome back young striker Alfonso Tenconi to the squad but we will need to rest Warren Harris, who started in his place last weekend. Warren has arthritis in his knee and it's a situation that we are going to have to be very careful with and work closely with him and the physios to manage his workload moving forward.
We are allowed to name 7 substitutes in the FA Trophy so have added goalkeeper George Rose and forward Imran Kayani from our U23s to a 19-man squad, and with one fitness test to take place before the game we will then select the final 18 on the day.
Squad: Jonathan North, Josh Jackman, Freddie Grant, Sean Fraser, Guy Hollis, Lee Togwell, Mark Nisbet, George Hunt, Aaron Kuhl, Scott Davies, Matt Lench, Eitel Goueth, Max Worsfold, Gabe George, Joe Lawal, Ben Harris, Alfonso Tenconi, Imran Kayani, George Rose.
