Next up - Hertford Town away on Tuesday, 5th February at Hertingfordbury Park, West Street, Hertford SG13 8EZ; Bostik Isthmian League Division One (South Central), kick off 7.45pm.

Admission - £8 adults, £4 concessions, £1 under-16s.

Hertford duly took their place in the firing line against free scoring Hayes & Yeading on Saturday. Their 8-1 defeat was a better performance than that managed by Hanwell Town who took a draw from Wodson Park on the same day so we can have no complacency about Tuesday's game.

As it is Hertford have been struggling for points lately but have ground out some creditable draws which suggests that we may face yet another of those gruelling contests against a solid defence.

News of Hertford manager Gavin Kelsey's resignation on Sunday will be a blow to his old side but it's times like that when teams come together and they have been quick to appoint Adam Fisher (late of Welwyn Garden City) as his replacement. Local derbies are always difficult to predict but one way or another it should be an interesting game.

Ware will have doubts hanging over Gareth Madden's availability after stitches were needed for his head wound on Saturday but he was optimistic that he would make it when he spoke after that game. Leigh Rose benefitted from the captain's withdrawal by coming on for his first match since his three game suspension so he should be match ready for Tuesday. Harry Norman, now at the end of his suspension period, will likely get a place on the bench.

There are (were?) several players in the current Hertford squad who have been with us in the past. We look to renew acquaintance with Ahmed Mohammed, Brett O'Connor, Louis Bowen and Elliot Bailey (scorer of the quickest known debut goal in our history). However, changes are afoot at Hertingfordbury Park and it is unclear how many of Saturday's squad will be on parade for this game. Their website site remains silent on all the developments.
