Cambridge City continue with their league programme tomorrow when they host Hanwell Town at Westwood Road. It will be the first game for the Lilywhites of 2018 after their New Years Day clash at Kempston was postponed. As of lunchtime on Friday, the match is in some doubt due to recent inclement weather, and a pitch inspection is planned. More details of when that inspection will take place will be announced in due course.
If the match does go ahead, it looks certain that loan goalkeeper Harry Seaden will take his place between the sticks replacing Niall Conroy. The regular City stopper still hasnít fully recovered from an injury that forced him off during the early stages of the match against Bedford on Boxing Day.
Elsewhere, the club has yet to agree an extension to the loan of centre back Jordan Williams. If he is not available, then Adam Capel looks set to partner Jordan Gent at the heart of the City defence. On the plus side, wide man Salim Relizani is set to come back into contention after not being available for the festive programme.
Hanwell will arrive at Westwood Road on the back of a Boxing Day win over Uxbridge. Prior to that, the London based outfit lost against AFC Rushden & Diamonds but recently recorded an impressive 2-1 victory at home to Ashford.
The visitors will desperately be looking to improve their league position as they go into the second half of the season. They currently sit 19th in the table, and have won only twice on the road this season at Uxbridge and Chalfont St Peter back in September. City will know that they had a tough test in the reverse fixture in October when the Lilywhites twice had to come from behind to secure a 2-2 draw.
Other games in the league tomorrow see leaders AFC Rushden & Diamonds entertain Marlow. The other two teams above City namely AFC Dunstable and Beaconsfield are at home to Aylesbury and away to Uxbridge respectively.
A reminder that if you cannot get to the game that you can keep up to date with all the latest via facebook and twitter with a full report, analysis and post-match interview with Robbie Nightingale available on the official website after the final whistle.
Kick-off at Westwood Road is at 3:00pm.
FIVE FACTS ABOUT THE VISITORS:
Ground: The Powerday Stadium, Perivale
Home Colours: Black & White stripes
Nickname: The Geordies
Fascinating Fact: A group of natives of Newcastle-upon-Tyne who were working in the area formed the club in 1920. Hanwell then adopted the black and white stripes of Newcastle United as their colours, and also explains their nickname too.
