Horsham are hoping to be at near full strength for the visit of Folkestone on Saturday.

A number of youngsters started in their 4-3 Ryman League Cup at Worthing on Wednesday night to give a few of the players the chance to recover from knocks.

Player-manager Gary Charman served the second of his two-man ban midweek so is also legible to play again.

Hornets coach Ian Varley is confident they can get a result at Gorings Mead, despite tipping their visitors for a title challenge.

He said: “Folkestone will be a tough game as they’re one of the better teams in our league.

“I know they currently sit eighth, but with the games in hand they have I would expect them to be in and around the top three all season.

“We certainly don’t fear them though and feel we can beat anyone at home as long as we play to our capabilities.”
