SWINDON Supermarine will look to make it four Southern League Premier Division South wins in a row tonight when they take on Metropolitan Police in Surrey.

Lee Spalding’s men have recovered from a tricky run of results to defeat Chesham United, Blackfield & Langley and Farnborough in the space of eight days, laying a foundation for their push up the table.

Now in seventh place, Marine have a chance to string four wins together for the first time this season against a Met Police outfit that have only won once in their previous six league outings.

Marine manager Spalding believes their upcoming opposition are still a force to be reckoned with despite their lowly position in the table, and is expecting a difficult test for his in-form side.

Spalding said: “Met Police are down the bottom at the moment, but if you look at the league table, it’s still so tight.

“If you can get a couple of wins, you can potentially be among the top half again. There’s nothing in it. I fully expect them to be a good side.

“They got into the super play-off final last season, so they were actually unlucky not to go up.

“I don’t think they’ve made wholesale changes, so I fully expect it to be a tough game for us and one that we’ll have to be at our best to get something from.

“We’ll have to work hard and do all of the things that have helped us be successful over the past week.”

Spalding revealed he is likely to make several changes to the side that came from behind to beat Farnborough 3-2 at the Webbswood Stadium on Saturday as he bids to keep players fresh and “on their toes”.

Full-back Michael Hopkins and experienced striker Stuart Fleetwood are likely to come back into the line-up, and the Marine chief outlined how important having a competitive squad is if a team is to be successful.

Spalding said: “We’ll probably freshen it up because the players have had a really hard week.

“We’ve got a couple of players coming back from injury, and that’s good because it gives us the chance to freshen things up a bit.

“If you’re going to be successful at this level, then you’re going to need a good squad.

“It’s not about having a great starting XI and good squad players to back it up. It’s about having a strong squad and knowing when to mix things up to keep everyone feeling good.

“Sometimes players don’t want to be taken out, but you have to do it for the good of the team.”

Elsewhere, Highworth Town travel to Gloucestershire to take on Cinderford Town in their FA Trophy replay following a 1-1 draw at the Save on Tyres Stadium on Saturday.

The winner will progress to the first qualifying round and take on Merthyr Town on Saturday, October 26.

Meanwhile, Hellenic League sides Shrivenham and Malmesbury Victoria are both in Supplementary Cup action.
