HELLENIC LEAGUE: Fisher hopeful over Clark injury
HIGHWORTH boss John Fisher is hopeful that Toby Clark’s ankle injury will not keep him out for a lengthy period.
Midfielder Clark hobbled off during Saturday’s 7-0 thumping of Holyport and is likely to miss tonight’s Hellenic Premier clash with visitors Binfield.
“I hope we’re not without him for too long,” said Fisher.
“Toby’s a big player for us and he’ll be a big miss, but we have players who can come in and do a good job in his place.”
Fisher believes his side fear no one at present given recent form.
He said: “The players are full of confidence, they feel like they can face anybody and expect to win at the moment so that’s good.
“The last two sides we’ve played have perhaps not been as strong as other sides in the league, but we have to keep winning these games and we can only beat the side in front of us.”
Elsewhere this evening, Chippenham entertain Stourbridge while Cirencester travel to Godalming.
Meanwhile, the draw for the second round of the Hellenic League Supplementary Cup has been made.
New College will face Carterton or Abingdon United away, if they are defeated by Rayners Lane in the Challenge Cup.

Highworth will go to Lydney or Shortwood if they lose to Brimscombe & Thrupp in the Challenge Cup, while Malmesbury Vics are also away, this time to North Leigh reserves.
