Next up - Hanwell Town away on Saturday, 9th November at The Powerday Stadium, Perivale Lane, Greenford, Greater London UB6 8TL; BetVictor Isthmian League Div 1 (South Central); kick off 3pm.
Admission: No details found for this year but last season it was Adults £8, Seniors £4 and Children £1 - programmes £1 on the gate.
After Tuesday's game of two halves I guess we are hoping for a settled line up and a degree of consistency from the team. Those qualities will be needed as we seek to defend our unbeaten league record against one of the two other unbeaten teams in the division.
The Geordies are second in the table (we are fifth) and have a point more than us despite playing one game fewer; they also have home advantage. All of which underlines the difficulty of our task. In the circumstances I hope we get off to a better start than we did last season at the Powerday when we went in at the break two down despite a clear run of play in the other direction.
The exceedingly well travelled Tom Collins scored a hat trick in that game but is no longer at Hanwell. Instead their main man of late is Gareth Chendlik who is the top scorer in the south central division.
Ware are still seeking a replacement for the departed Akinsanya though Liam Hope's hat trick in the Velocity Trophy in midweek suggests one may not be needed as urgently as first thought. At the other end of the team Ethan Gannon is doing well between the posts but might we see the return from injury of Calum Kitscha?
