THE top two sides in Hellenic League Division One West will do battle at Shrivenham’s Barrington Park headquarters tomorrow.

Visiting Ardley United are currently five points clear of Gareth Davies’ second-placed side and, having played three games fewer, can take a big step towards the championship with victory.

Shrivenham are in decent form, however, winning four of their last five league matches, and their manager believes they can give a much better account of themselves than they did when they were beaten 2-0 in October’s reverse fixture.

Davies said: “It will be very interesting. We’ve come a long way since we played them at their place and are a bit more equipped.

“Aaron Dainton joined us from Fairford over Christmas and has made a big difference.

“We’re five points behind but the right result will put them under a bit of pressure to win those games in hand.”

Highworth Town will look to get their Premier Division title push back on track when they entertain fourth-placed Flackwell Heath tomorrow.

Jeff Roberts’ men boasted a double-digit advantage at the summit before Christmas but have picked up just one point from the two matches they have played during 2018 so far and are now only three clear of an in-form Thatcham Town side who also have a game in hand.

Highworth added former Swindon Town and Supermarine striker Connor Waldon to their ranks this week.

Fairford Town could do Highworth a huge favour when they welcome Thatcham to Cinder Lane but will certainly have their work cut out.

While the visitors have won their last 17 matches in all competitions – netting 14 times without reply in their last two – Fairford have not tasted victory since December 2 and currently sit fourth from bottom.

Royal Wootton Bassett Town are without a fixture and will return to action on Wednesday night when they visit Highworth for a rearranged Perpetua Press Floodlit Cup third-round tie (7.45pm).
