THAME United are at full strength on Saturday as they get back into the league swing of things.

The Windmill Road outfit welcome back Martin Brown and Justin Merritt who both come back from injury after having an extra week to recover.

Thame used the week off to play a friendly against Ryman Premier team Bedford Town, which enabled manager Andy Sinnott to look at the youngsters he bought in the January sales.

He said: "We bought a couple of lads who are very promising. This was a good opportunity to look at them and we learnt a lot from it."

Sinnott said Bryndley Spence, a YTS trainee picked up from Oxford, looked very good at centre back after playing a couple of games for the reserves.

Thame went down 3-1 at Bedford at the weekend, with a creditable performance. They were drawing 1-1 with only ten minutes to go before they were sunk with two late goals.

Saturday sees the First Division outfit at home to a Windsor & Eton side, who are currently struggling at the bottom-of-the-table.

Windsor & Eton are without a win away in the league all season and Sinnott said the game is one Thame should really win.

Sinnott said: "Everybody's looking forward to the game. It's an important match. If we have a good run, we can get back into the pack of clubs chasing for promotion."

In Division Two, Marlow manager Derek Sweetman bemoaned the loss of more players after an injury-plagued season.

Sweetman has only been able to choose from a full squad once all season and this week sees Jason Bowler out with a back problem and Jason Travis suspended.

James Pritchard is only rated at 60:40, and Rob Gibson with a neck problem and Matt Clarke with a bad ankle all face late fitness test.

Sweetman said: "It's so difficult being a non-league team and losing players left, right and centre."

The injuries will allow fringe players to stake a claim for a run in the side, who are away at Hemel Hempstead Town on Saturday.

Marlow have already beaten them twice this season but Hemel, with a new manager and new players, will be out to avenge their league and cup defeats against Marlow.

Sweetman said: "We're looking forward to it. They're going to be an unknown quantity but they'll be going to get revenge."

Chalfont will be looking to put their home defeat to Hornchurch behind then when they go to Leighton Town.

After an amazing 3-2 victory against Witham, Chalfont had hoped they had arrested their poor run of results but went one-down to Hornchurch on Saturday after 26 minutes.

Frankie Brannan equalised but second-half goals from Hornchurch secured a 3-1 victory and Mark Needham was sent-off just before the end.

But Chalfont will be looking for all three points against Leighton Town, who are second from bottom of Division Three.
