BRENDON King is confident his side can bring Hemel Hempstead Town back down to earth at the Bob Lucas Stadium tomorrow (3pm).

King told Echosport: “They are second for a reason but at home we are more than a match for anyone.

“Kyle Critchell should be okay though. He has been feeling his groin a little and that is why we took him off against Totton to protect him.”
Mark Ford will return to the squad tomorrow after missing the clash with the Millers through work commitments while goalkeeper Jamie Perry will replace the unavailable Chris Povall on the bench.
The Terras have lost just one of their opening eight games in all competitions this season but during that time they have recorded just two victories. King will be hoping that becomes three
