SWINDON Supermarine boss Dave Webb says he plans to utilise his squad ahead of their Wiltshire Senior Cup second-round clash with Salisbury.

Not only does the Marine manager plan to use the cup fixture to give minutes to players who have been on the periphery so far this term, he may also be forced into replacing captain Zak Westlake and Ryan Campbell, as they both picked up injuries at the weekend.

Skipper Westlake may miss out with a foot injury, which he collected deep into their 2-0 defeat at Yate Town on Saturday, while Campbell is struggling with an ankle problem.

New signing Harrison Bennett came off the bench to make his debut at the weekend and could be in line for his first start against the Whites, who are just one point ahead of Marine in second place in the Southern League West table with 27 points.

“That was his Harrison’s first 25 minutes or however long he had so far this season, he is a good player and he is only going to get better so we are going to have a look at home for Tuesday,” said Webb.

“We have a couple of injuries, Ryan Campbell and Zak Westlake both picked up nasty injuries over the weekend.

“Ryan’s ankle isn’t great and Zak has a really nasty cut on his foot which he sustained late in the game, so how those two will be I’m not sure, we will have to see.

“We won’t be taking any chances with them that is for sure if they’re not right, but the quality we have at the club means we should be able to change things around a little bit and get players some valuable minutes.”

While Webb admits he was disappointed with the result on Saturday, he thinks this evening's clash with Salisbury could be the perfect remedy for his troops.

He also reiterated that there are plenty of reasons to remain positive as his side looked more than capable of scoring at the weekend.

Joe Selman and Josh Parsons hit the woodwork four times collectively, before two late goals saw them tumble to a 2-0 defeat.

Webb won’t have to think too hard about what to expect from tonight’s hosts as the two sides met seven weeks ago in domestic action, where Supermarine ran out 2-0 winners at the Raymond McEnhill Stadium, courtesy of goals from Campbell and George Kellow.

“We should have come away from there (Yate) as winners but we didn’t, so we have to move on,” added the Marine chief.

“It puts the emphasis on our game in the Wiltshire Senior Cup which gives us the opportunity to bounce back.

“If we hadn’t have created any chances to score then it would have been different, we did look like scoring and we did play good stuff, it was just unfortunate.”

ROYAL Wootton Bassett Town will be hoping for better luck with the weather this evening as they make the trip to Horndean in the FA Vase second round.

The game was originally set to take place on Saturday but fell foul to the weather and the winners will head to Southampton-based Wessex League Premier Division mid-table outfit Hamble Club in the third round on Saturday, December 2.
