Manager Neal Ardley has said he will be deciding on the team effectively at the last minute for this weekends game against Cheltenham Town.

With numerous injury worries as covered yesterday with some out, others maybe in contention as walking wounded, Ardley told the Official Site that his team selection would be decided tomorrow because with nine games left, he has to balance fitness, freshness along with putting out as strong a team as possible to get the result we want.

Vice skipper Barry Fuller could be thrown straight into the team again despite his substitution in the first half against Burton Albion. He returned to training on Tuesday after recovering from his gluteal strain, but Aaron Morris and Kevin Sainte-Luce are both very doubtful with hamstring problems.

‘Barry is fine now and I think it was a bit of fatigue at the end of a hard week, Aaron will probably take a bit longer. Playing two games in five days probably killed him after such a long lay off, but he will play a big part next week.’

The gaffer goes on to say that we are carrying some knocks so late assessments will be done before people are ruled in or out and then he’ll make his decision. It’s not a great problem for him though as he trusts the squad he has, and these things happen in football, you just have to deal with them as best you can.

After what was a disappointing week point wise, picking up only two from an available nine, the gaffer does think that heart can be taken from the fact that we played two teams in the top six and now they are out of the way, points take precedence now and we should be more than good enough to have a much better run in the league over the coming week.

What he hopes to do though is turn some of these draws into narrow one nil wins, and that has to be something we strive towards.
