City Alerts - Staines preview

PREVIEW, home to Staines Town, League, 3 pm, Saturday, 28 January 2012. 

TOM BROOKS out with hand injury - picked up several weeks ago and now worse.  Not clear how long he will be out of action.  Has seen doctor and will be further assessed.  Lee hoping to sign loan goalkeeper in time for tomorrow;  also contingency to sign up City's reserve goalkeeper LUKE PAYNE.  

TIM SANDERCOMBE may now need surgery for the knee injury that has kept him out of action for nearly two months.  LEE himself not in contention for tomorrow; first target now is next Saturday. 

STEWART YETTON making good progress, but unlikely to be on bench tomorrow.  Reserve players SCOTT PALMER and DANNY CARNE will again be in squad. 

TRANSFER EMBARGO:  no fresh indications/signals re lifting;  best hope sometime next week.

STAINES TOWN: currently fourth from bottom in League, with 23 points from 25 matches, won 6, drawn 5, lost 14, goals for 27, against 42.  Last three results:  lost 4-1 at home to Dartford on Tuesday, won 1-0 at Chelmsford City, won 1-0 at Woking.

LEAST NECESSARY REMINDER - ignore Staines' lowly League table position!  Just look at those last two away results.  So only the best will do tomorrow, in terms of support and noise for The Boys, from start to finish.  As Lee puts it, this will be another "cup final," with just 15 more of them - "cup finals" - to follow after tomorrow!

UPCOMING FIXTURES (all League, 3 pm) Sat Feb 04, Basingstoke away;  Sat Feb 11, Salisbury home;  Sat Feb 18, Dover Athletic away;  Sat Feb 25, Eastleigh away.
