Eastleigh Preview

6 August 2012

Full squad for Tuesday friendly

United will send a full strength squad to Eastleigh tomorrow night (Tuesday) for their penultimate pre-season friendly.
Alfie Potter's goal in Saturday's game at home to Cardiff continued a decent run of form for United's forwards: ten of the eleven goals scored in pre-season have come from strikers with Tony Capaldi's goal against Seacoast United Phantoms the odd one out.
Deane Smalley (3), Potter (2), James Constable, Sean Rigg, Tom Craddock, Jon-Paul Pittman and Tyrone Marsh have all netted in the warm up games and are all likely to feature as United take on Eastleigh of the Blue Square South.
Trialist Ryan Tafazoli is likely to play a part again although Alex Evans and Courtney Harris are unlikely to be involved and United may look at one or two different trialists tomorrow, and at Oxford City on Friday night when they complete their pre-season fixtures.
Simon Heslop may return to the squad after a sore back.
Eastleigh, sponsored by Bridle, have some familiar names in their squad with manager Ian Baird able to call on the likes of experienced forward Lee Peacock, midfielder Daryl McMahon, formerly of Stevenage, and former United striker Craig McAllister.
Kick-off is at 7.45pm
