With Ware back to winning ways at Ashford last week they will be hoping to consolidate with a first home victory since January 5th. Yet FC Romania's somewhat eccentric selection processes mean that our 6-0 away win in the first ever meeting between the clubs back in November is no guide to the outcome of this one.
What can be said is that despite a 2-0 home win over Molesey last week FC Romania stay sixteenth in the table, looking comfortable enough but not mathematically clear of relegation worries. This must make Ware favourites to win but nothing is that simple and we should be on our guard against over confidence.
A win would however keep Ware in touch with the play off places where they currently sit one place and six points behind Westfield. If Hertford can do us a favour by winning in Surrey on the same afternoon that would be very nice, thank you.
We will be without Harry Norman whose nasty sounding injury at work will rule him out for sometime, possibly the rest of the season. We have though signed George Casey as cover and he might be in the squad.
The programme for this game (£1.50 on the gate) includes the fixtures, results and tables for all our age teams; Matt Walker's continuing series on his football tour of Europe; Ian Bush's latest match photos and Traveller's Tales. Aiden ponders the meaning of nationality in his Astroturf article before taking on FIFA and asking just what it does.
And don't forget……
The Under-15s are at home on Sunday in a local derby league game against Hertford Town at midday. Before that the Under-14s have a friendly against Stotfold at 10am. Admission is free on Sunday and there's food, drink and TV in the clubroom.
