BASINGSTOKE Town will play Melksham twice in eights days after Monday's FA Trophy draw paired the side's together.

The Dragons will travel to Melksham a week on Saturday for a first round qualifying tie, but first the sides will clash in the league this weekend at Winchester City.

Town expects striker Ben Wright to be back, but Ryan Suckling will miss the game due suspension.

Town boss Dan Brownlie will be keen for his side to make it three wins on the trot and said: "I have every faith in the players, but we know it is not going to be easy."

Last Saturday, Aaron Kuhl, who played six times for Reading made an impressive debut for the Dragons as they won at Cirencester 3-2 in the FA Trophy.
