Cambridge City travel to Aylesbury tomorrow evening for their first away match of the season.
The Lilywhites go to Buckinghamshire looking to make amends following their defeat to Ashford on the opening day of the campaign on Saturday.
Whilst City were losing to Ashford, Aylesbury picked up a point following a 1-1 draw at Hayes & Yeading.
City go to Aylesbury still without the services of Buster Harradine and he will also be unavailable for the Friday night FA Cup tie at home to Stamford. Elsewhere, Ross Paterson is also rated as doubtful.
Speaking ahead of the game, City boss Robbie Nightingale said “Like on Saturday, I expect a difficult test. Aylesbury will be a strong, physical side, and they got a good point at Hayes at the weekend. We know that we need to do better than we did on Saturday. We need to move the ball better, show more composure and hopefully start creating more chances. The performance levels all round will have to be better in all areas if we are to come away with a positive result”.
Aylesbury finished in 19th position last year, 10 points clear of safety. They have several key players in their side including Jeanmal Prosper who has made over 140 appearances for Aylesbury in his 3 spells at the club. Meanwhile Johnny Montgomery was man of the match in their performance at Hayes and Yeading on Saturday. He boasts experience in Irish football as well as spells at Burnham and Beaconsfield SYCOB.
Elsewhere in the East Division this midweek, there is Monday night action for both teams who won at the weekend as Moneyfields travel to Beaconsfield. Thame United open up their home campaign with a tough test against AFC Rushden & Diamonds. Meanwhile, leaders in the embryonic league table, AFC Dunstable are probably involved in the feature match as they travel to Kempston Rovers for a Bedfordshire local derby.
If you are travelling to watch City at Aylesbury, then the ground details are below. If not, then keep up to date with all the action via social media on the club twitter feed and Facebook pages. There will be a match report on the City website after the final whistle.
Kick-off at the SRD Stadium is at 7:45pm.
