SWINDON Supermarine boss Dave Webb says he may be forced to travel to Barnstaple Town with less than a full matchday squad as injuries continue to cripple his side.

Before Tuesday’s Southern League West clash with Winchester City, Supermarine were already struggling with injury and, after the 3-2 defeat, Webb revealed the club may have picked up another two injuries.

In addition to Harrison Bennett and Ryan Campbell joining the injury list, Joe Shepherd is also unavailable as he is suspended.

With only 12 players definitely fit and available, Webb reckons their biggest problem this weekend is getting people physically ready for the game.

“Our biggest challenge is to try and get some players back and available, we might have picked up another two injuries on Tuesday in Harrison Bennett and Ryan Campbell,” he said.

“I’ve never known a situation where we have had so many players unavailable, but we can’t use that as an excuse and we just need to get on with it.

“We will probably be travelling with less than a full quota of substitutions, so it is case of working harder than the opposition to get a win.

“We just need to go there, be hard to beat and try to get a win to get our season back on track because at the moment, it is slipping away from us.

“Circumstances are what they are, there will be some assessments on the players, but at the moment we probably have 12 who are definitely fit and available.”

Marine have collected just one win in their last four games, with a run of three defeats in their last three outings.

Saturday will see Supermarine embark on a 270-mile round trip to Barnstaple, a game which Webb has labelled as a 'must-win' after his club’s poor form of late.

“The midweek game was disappointing, it was a game that we started really well and then they were given a very dubious penalty right on half-time,” he said.

“The game just went away from us, but to be fair to the players they played really well to get back to 2-2 and really they deserved a point.

“That would’ve given us something, and we deserved that for our effort. So after losing that game in the dying minutes, Saturday now becomes very important.”
