NON-LEAGUE: Fisher in the dark

First published in Football by

JOHN Fisher has no idea what to expect from Wokingham & Emmbrook tonight.

Fisher’s Highworth team clash with the Satsumas at the Elms as they go in search of their fourth league win of the season in the Hellenic Premier.

Wokingham are faring much better as they currently sit eighth and are off the back of a thumping 5-0 Supplementary Cup victory over Wootton Bassett on Saturday.

However, Fisher is unsure as to what sort of quality his team will be up against.

He said: “They are quite a funny side, they blow a bit hot and cold. One minute they have got it right and other times they seem to struggle.

“It’s going to be a hard game, we drew with them up there going back a couple of months ago but we had chances to win it.

“There’s never an easy side to play against but I’ve always done reasonably well against them. They are still not the easiest side to play against.

“They knock the ball around quite well but a scrappy three points will do me.”

Highworth have plenty of home games coming up and Fisher reckons that could help his team in their fight for survival.

“We have Thame again on Saturday and with four home games on the trot (starting tonight), hopefully we can pick up some points,” he said.

For this evening’s game front man Brad Clark is doubtful with an ankle knock, but midfielder Darren Smart came through Saturday’s game with no ill-effects following his return from an ankle injury.
