Fight for shirts goes on

Tony Vance is once again in the position of having healthy numbers available, this time for a midweek away game as he selects 16 to travel to Molesey on Tuesday night.

He would have been delighted to again have more than 16 declaring themselves in contention for selection, and has made four changes.

Tom De La Mare (away), Glyn Dyer, Kieran Mahon and Robbie Legg (all unavailable) have made way. Those coming in have been available for a couple of weeks but have had to fight for a place and wait for their chance to get back in.

Keanu Marsh is fit again after a groin injury and Matt Loaring comes back in after last playing in the win over Faversham Town in September. Also named after having to wait for their opportunity are club captain Simon Geall and forward Kyle Smith.

Chris Tardif, Liam Mahon, Josh Steel and Jack Domaille are still on the injury list.

Vance's chosen 16 are as follows: Dennis, Marsh, Geall, F Tobin, Le Prevost, Dodd, H Tobin, Dodds, Gauvain, Skillen, Young, Loaring, Rihoy, Pereira, Smith, Allen.

The Green Lions have lost just two of their last eight, but will feel they still have some bouncing back to do after picking up just one point from a possible six at home in their last two matches, including last Wednesday when they blew a three-goal lead in the closing stages to only draw with Whyteleafe. We could move up from 20th to 16th in Bostik South with a win.

However, a win at Walton Road is something we are yet to manage in three attempts, with a draw and two defeats on our previous visits. Victory for the Moles would see them leapfrog the Green Lions with a game in hand. The Surrey side have two wins in six in the league, including a 3-0 triumph over Chipstead on Saturday.

Our last meeting came in September, with a last minute winner from Paris Pereira sealing a 3-2 win that sparked the current run the Green Lions are on.

Tuesday's match kicks off at 7.45pm. Fans unable to make it to Walton Road can watch full coverage live on GFCTV and keep up to date via our social media channels. Highlights will be uploaded later in the week, with the full 90-minute playback available to subscribers immediately following the end of the live broadcast.
