FOLLOWING their 3-3 draw with Windsor in the FA Cup extra preliminary round, Highworth Town boss Jeff Roberts concedes his squad is a little lightweight.

Roberts took his promoted side to the Hellenic League Premier Division team, which also marked their first fixture of the season.

With a couple of injury absentees, the Worthians were forced to come from behind and snatch a late replay.

Ash Edenborough levelled proceedings to earn the visitors a replay deep into injury time, his second goal of the game, with the first coming from the penalty spot. Jason Milhench netted in the first half for Roberts' men.

“Obviously we brought quite a few new players in over the summer and in the first half we looked a bit sluggish and we were off the pace,” said the manager.

“I knew that Windsor would be quite lively up top. In the first half we weren’t where we should have been but I had a chat with them (the players) at half-time.

“We looked a lot sharper after that and then there was conflict where they had a man sent off, but we sat back a little bit after that.

“We had a couple of chances, Wayne Turk had a header saved off of the line from five yards out and then Edenborough got up and headed it home.

Highworth will now host the replay at The Elms on Wednesday night and the Worthians’ chief says he welcomes the rearranged contest.

“We are still looking to bring a few players in.

"Obviously we aren’t going to be able to get them to play in the replay because they won’t be registered in time,” he added.

“We are looking for three players for when we play Totton at the weekend because I thought we looked a little bit lightweight.

“It was Windsor’s third game so they did look a bit sharper than we did and they were the underdogs so they were always going to come out and have a go at us.

“We are lucky to still be in the draw and we have them at our place on Wednesday night and I think it is more of a benefit for us to play again.

“We need it, the lads will have looked at their performances because there is a lot more we could have done.

“A game will be much better for us than training during the week.”
