BASINGSTOKE Town have a mini injury crisis ahead of their big home game against visiting Chesham United on Saturday in the Southern League Premier Division.

Strikers Sam Argent and Ben Wright, along with skipper Charlie Kennedy all missed Tuesday night's League Cup loss 4-1 against Hartley Wintney.

During the game, Aaron Redford another striker was forced out of the contest after 10 minutes, which was disappointed as he looked very lively and had Town's first chance of the game.

Redford is back after a two year break from the Camrose and certainly was a fans' favourite when last in the town, but his injury will mean manager Martin Kuhl will speed up his efforts to bring in reinforcements to his squad.

Last Saturday, Town enjoyed a 2-0 win over Hartley in the league and one of the goal scorers was Harry Pearse, who missed Tuesday night's loss because he was cup tied.

The Dragons are 18th in the table with 28 points from 22 games, while Chesham are 20th and have 26 points from 23 games.

This is the first two meetings between these sides in January, with the away game on January 22.

Kuhl said: "We are looking at a number of players and with budget we may well have to release some players to bring them in. It is another tough game on Saturday, but we have to put away our chances and then not give up goals."
