Chatham Town will have greater forward strength for their game at Needham Market
By Luke Cawdell
Chatham head to Needham Market this weekend boasting a much
stronger goal threat than they did for their last outing.
Kevin Watson’s side were beaten 1-0 last weekend by Soham Town
Rangers. Chatham went into that league game missing three of their
strikers along with suspended captain Matt Newman.
For Saturday's game Jack Pallen is expected to be back after
illness and Harry Smith is involved again following a stint
training with League 2 side Brentford.
Newman has served his suspension and there are also hopes that
Jack Jeffery could soon be fit, after missing out through
Watson may, however, be without left-back Liam Hickey, who
picked up a groin injury at the weekend. On the plus side, defender
Lewis Hamill is nearing fitness, having come through the last two
reserve games, following his hamstring injury.
Director of football Steve Binks (pictured) said: "There should
be some more players available in attack this week and even last
week the team did well and were unlucky.
"It looks like at least two of the three strikers will be back
and Matt Newman is also an attack-minded player."
Needham Market have yet to win a home match in the Ryman League
Division 1 North but Binks warned: "They are going to win
eventually but hopefully it won’t be against us."
