The Linnets:

Lymington have had a frustrating season but still, carries several threats. Forward Craig McAllister has an eye for goal and is supplied by Harrison Cable and Sam Shearer. Goalkeeper Matthew Fredericks has stopped their goal difference from taking a bigger hit and is fresh from a penalty save last week.

The Farm:

Manor Farm are finding goals much easier to come by in recent weeks and their star-studded forward line carries constant threats. Evander Grubb scored a beauty last time out, Josh Ford nodded his first of the season and striker Kye Simpson will be relishing his chance with top scorer Owen Howe serving the first of his three-match suspension.

The Form:

The league hasn’t provided much excitement for either team this season, but Farm come in confident after their pulsating victory against the Foresters last weekend. Lymington are yet to get a win and only have one solitary point. That point interestingly was against early league favourites Frome but they will be keen to get at least another point in this one.
