Hares facing tough tests

March Town face two tough games in the next week with a home league game against Saffron Walden on Saturday and then a Cambs Invitation Cup semi-final against Haverhill next Tuesday night.

With his squad depleted by injuries and suspension, manager Jamie Weston feels the games could not have come at a worse time.

Skipper Luke Pepper is to see a specialist about his knee injury and could be out for another four weeks while Adam Sutton, Adam Weston and Simon Bates are also on the injured list. Grant Watson also starts a three-game suspension this weekend.

Ash Brand is also doubtful with a calf injury. Dan Sterna and Adam Cornell, who missed the Ipswich Wanderers trip with illness, could be back in the squad which was reduced to just 12 players on Saturday.

Haverhill are in fourth place in the Premier Division, but have scored just two goals in their last three games.

Weston commented: “If we can produce another good all-round effort as we did at Ipswich we could just be capable of a surprise.”
