HELLENIC LEAGUE: Fisher thinks Highworth can beat anyone
JOHN Fisher is not worried who Highworth face at the moment as he is confident that his team can beat anyone in the Hellenic Premier.
The Worthians have won five of their last seven fixtures and entertain Highmoor at the Elms this evening.
Highmoor might be similarly placed in the table to their hosts but that does not concern Fisher in the slightest as he feels his side should not be scared of anyone.
“Highmoor are quite physical and argue amongst themselves sometimes, so I imagine they will be quite robust,” he said.
“They blow hot and cold so you don’t know what you’re going to get.
“But any side in the league now we’re not bothered about because I’m happy with what I’ve got. On our day we can beat anyone.
“When you’re winning everything’s great. We’ve got 23 points now and we only had 35 in the whole of last season.”
Forward Brad Clark has a foot problem so is doubtful for this evening’s game.
Meanwhile, Shrivenham manager Dave Turner is keen for his side to rediscover their best form when they travel to winless Abingdon United.
Shrivvy lost 4-1 to Ascot on Saturday, a result which followed on from successive 3-0 wins against Wokingham & Emmbrook and Holyport.
“We have the chance to put it right but we’ve got to make sure we get back to how we performed in the couple of games previous to Ascot,” said Turner.
“I’m sure Abingdon would have looked at our result at the weekend and thought Tuesday is a good chance to beat us, that’s what I’d be saying if I was their manager.
“If we play like we have done previously then we’ll be fine, but if we don’t turn up it’s going to be a long evening.”
Returning are wide-left players Dave Coleman and Mike Silvanus while Supermarine loanee Harry Etheridge is also available.
“We’re at full strength,” added Turner. “It’s probably the strongest side we’ve had all season.”
Elsewhere, Fairford host Berkeley in the second round of the GFA Challenge Trophy.
Defender Adam Smith and midfielder Matt Boucher are away but boss Paul Braithwaite is hoping to field a strong line-up, with reserve team captain Ben Anderson included in the squad.
“We’re looking to bring in one or two of the reserve lads but apart from that we won’t look to change too much,” said Braithwaite.
