Match preview from joint manager Neil Baker
Tonight gives us the opportunity to play the U23 team from Premier League AFC Bournemouth, in what will no doubt be a tough game.
In terms of their standard, it is interesting to note that they beat Weymouth 6-0 and Poole Town 7-0 in pre-season.
With regards to ourselves, having had two spare midweeks, we felt that it was important to get some more minutes into players, including some who have not played loads in the last couple of weeks.
We will be missing Chris Flood and Matty Stevens this evening, plus the injured Simon Dunn (ankle), who we think will miss the next 4-6 weeks, plus Sean Fraser is still suffering from the effects of a dead leg.
Although we considered bringing Nathan Smart back, Hartley Wintney have a league game this evening which we felt was right for him to play in, so we therefore have a plan with the remaining 13 players.
Squad from: Jack Turner, Josh Jackman, George Wells, Guy Hollis, Mark Nisbet, Sam Togwell, Scott Davies, Lee Togwell, James Dobson, Louie Soares, Warren Harris, Ben Harris and Manny Williams.
