Penn and Tylers Green manager Gareth Williams bemoaned the inclement weather on Tuesday evening which saw his side's match against Thame Rangers in the Hellenic League Division One East postponed.

However, Williams is hopeful his side can overcome Wallingford in what will be a tough game for his side on Saturday afternoon at Spratleys Meadow (kick off 3pm).

Wallingford and Thame Rangers are side-by-side in the league and Williams is bracing himself for a tricky match but his hopeful his team can show their best form.

He said: "It would have been nice to play against Thame on Tuesday evening as Wallingford and Thame are third and fourth in the league so we would know what level we would be up against.

"I had a very strong squad available for Tuesday night. On Saturday, I am hopeful of having a strong squad again, minus a couple of players who are away."

Williams admitted that barring Tuesday's postponement, they have been lucky with the weather so far this campaign and admitted a top six place in the league would make him a happy man.

He said: "We are still aiming for a very strong second half to the season.

"We had a plan in place to kick on in the new year and Saturday's game will represent a tough test for us.

"I have added a couple of signings to the squad as well so we can see how they will fit in and I am hopeful we can have a lot of positive results between now and the end of the season.

"This league is a lot tougher than last year, no doubt about that. There are a lot of good teams in the division and if we can get into the top six, I will be very happy with that."
