SHRIVENHAM boss Gareth Davies admits it will need a miracle if they are to avoid another cancelled fixture this weekend.

With temperatures plummeting the club are due to face Woodstock Town.

While the Shrivenham manager says he would be more than happy to play the game, he admits the outlook is bleak after consulting the weather forecast.

“I will be very surprised if we are playing but I have got my fingers crossed,” said Davies, who plans to get his squad in for some work over the weekend.

“Our reserve team got cancelled during the week and the pitch is like a car park at the moment, it is absolutey frozen.

“If we don’t play this week, we don’t have a game next week so they have to be in at the weekend.

“We can’t afford not to be in, they will be doing something on Saturday. We will be in the club somewhere.

“We have only got seven games left of the season to go and this is not helping.”

Davies managed to get his troops out last weekend for the first time in over a month and says he is growing frustrated by the winter weather.

“You always get one or two gmaes called off but this doesn’t seem to end. We are in March, it is what it is, it’s just frustrating because we want to get cracking,” added Davies.

“We need to get everything from all of the games we have left.

“There is a bit of pressure that comes with it, but we set high targets art our place.

“We’ll need a favour from someone, somewhere along the line so all we can do is carry on and see where that will take us.”

New College will bid for their fourth win of the season on Saturday and have a great chance to claim victory as they come up against Tytherington Rocks, who are yet to register a point in 21 attempts.

Highworth Town are also set to be in action next Wednesday when they look to advance in the Supplementary Cup, where they will need to overcome a trip to Shortwood United Reserves.

Royal Wootton Bassett Town are without a game tomorrow, but they will look to end their recent poor form next Saturday, where they will aim for three points at home to rivals Abingdon United.

Interim Bassett manager Sam Collier is still on the hunt for his first league victory while in the Bassett hotseat after taking over from Rich Hunter in January.
