SKIPPER Ben Andrews will be able to play in Horsham’s Ryman Premier match against Cray Wanderers tonight after flying back to the UK.
Andrews was away with work, and it was thought he could miss tonight’s game, but he managed to catch a flight from Geneva which landed at 1pm today and will lead the Hornets out at Gorings Mead.
His presence will allow John Maggs to go with a more familiar 4-4-2 line up, as opposed to the sweeper system deployed in the weekend’s heavy defeat to Harrow.
Manager Maggs said: “I thought the sweeper system worked quite well up until half time. We will be able to line up in a more familiar way tonight.”
Cray have been at the sharp end of the division all season, but are experiencing a dip in form which Maggs hopes to capitalise on.
“We had them watched at the weekend and we know their strengths,” Maggs remarked. “Hopefully we can start picking up points, we need six more wins to be safe from relegation. It does not sound a lot but wins are hard to come by.”
Meanwhile, Hassan Nyang is expected to play in midfield alongside playmaker Anthony Storey.
