FOOTBALL: Three back as Chickens go in search of a treble
CHICKERELL United boss Steve Coward is expecting to welcome back a trio of players for tomorrow’s home clash against Sturminster Newton (3pm).
Having started their Dorset Senior League campaign with successive wins, the Chick- ens will no doubt be after the hat-trick this weekend against a Cherries outfit that have so far failed to pick up a single point.
And with Liam Miles, pictured, Elliott Stone and Dan Campbell-Bell all back available it would take a brave person to bet against them.
However, Coward is still erring on the side of caution. He said: “Sturminster may have no points at present but there are no easy games in this league and you never know what you are going to get.”
Josh Why and Mark Lambert both returned to the club last week and are expected to be involved again while Warren White is another potential addition after more than 18 months away from the game.
It is likely to be a case of one in, one out for Portland United Res-erves in their clash against Sturminster Marshall at Grove Corner (3pm). James Turrell is the man set to return while Rob Townley will miss out through university commitments.
The Weymouth outfit suffered a 3-0 loss at Sturminster Marshall last weekend and Pete Jarvis is expecting a response.
The Upwey player-coach said: “The lads know it was a poor performance last weekend but now they need to draw a line under it and learn from it.
“Tomorrow is going to be another test of character and it is up to them to respond.”
Phil Anderson and Sean Stewart are both still suspended for Upwey, who will also be without Charlie May and Richard Frost.
Jason Pearce and Charlie Kenderdine are also major doubts.
