FAIRFORD Town manager Jody Bevan is ready to unleash his side on Reading City this weekend after their midweek clash with Abingdon was cancelled.

Bevan’s side were due to play on Tuesday but were forced to reschedule as their counterparts were involved in FA Cup action.

After the disappointment of missing out on a fixture, Bevan says his players are eager to get back on the pitch.

“They’re desperate to play because we were disappointing in our FA Cup game last Saturday,” he said. “We didn’t get going in that one so we wanted to put it right on Tuesday, hopefully we can do that on Saturday.

“The players will be chomping at the bit. It’s going to be a tough game. Reading City are a team who have come out of nowhere.

“They seem to have a bit of clout and they’ve made a huge amount of changes from last season.

“We are under no illusions it will be another tough game and we will go there, as ever and look to win the game.”

Elsewhere, Royal Wootton Bassett Town travel to Windsor. Shrivenham have a weekend off, but will return to action on Tuesday night when they will welcome Windsor to Barrington Park.

Away from the top tier in the Hellenic League Division One West, New College are hoping to bounce back from their opening day hammering with a home victory against Easingston Sports.

Meanwhile, Malmesbury Victoria travel to Kidlington Reserves on Monday.
