ROYAL Wootton Bassett Town manager Sam Collier says his side is fully fit and raring to go ahead of their midweek Hellenic League Premier Division fixture away to Windsor.

Bassett will not have played in 10 days by the time tonight’s game goes ahead after being afforded the luxury of a free weekend on Saturday.

Collier’s men last played on February 8 when they convincingly swept Bishops Cleeve aside 3-0 at the Gerard Buxton Sports Ground thanks to second-half goals from Mark Francis, Anaclet Odhiambo and Daniel Warre.

With the break allowing any potential niggling injuries to be sorted out and a small but worthwhile period of rest into players’ legs, Collier is looking forward to the prospect of his team being able to play their natural game on a good quality Windsor pitch.

He said: “We’re looking forward to this game because we didn’t have a fixture at the weekend.

“We’d already planned to have this weekend off, so everyone is fit and available off the back of last week’s impressive home win.

“Ideally we would have liked another game at the weekend, but we haven’t got to wait too long and if we were to have been playing on Saturday, it probably would have been called off anyway.

“We’re looking forward to going to Windsor with a positive outlook and hopefully we can continue where we left off.”

After their most recent victory, Bassett are now just three places and two points behind Windsor in 12th place.

Both outfits have been struggling with inconsistency this term having not strung consecutive wins together since the start of December (Bassett) and the beginning of October (Windsor).

Collier is hopeful of changing that statistic tonight however, though Bassett will have to do something they have not managed since December 7 – win away.

Collier said: “They’ve had quite a change in personnel, they’ve signed a couple of good players and they’ve had a new manager in recently as well halfway through the season too.

“They’ve had some quite good results recently, but they’ve also had some strange results too.

“It’s difficult to play anyone in this league, certainly away from home.

“We’ve got to travel an hour and a half down the M4 which in itself is a challenge, but hopefully we can go there and give a good account of ourselves.

“Windsor is quite a nice place to go, it’s a good ground and the pitch is decent – we’re looking forward to it.”
