BANBURY United will be without suspended Lee Henderson when they travel to Norfolk to play Kings Lynn Town in Evo-Stik South League Premier Division Central tomorrow.

Henderson is serving a

one-match ban after being sent off in the closing stages of last weekend’s Emirates FA Cup defeat to Bath City.

Mike Ford’s men lost 2-0 to their higher-division rivals, but the manager feels his players should not be too downbeat.

The manager said: “I’m very philosophical and understanding, and my players don’t need to get down about losing a game to a side that are in a higher league.

“I think you have to put last week into perspective, Bath were excellent and well worth their victory.”

Kings Lynn, who lost in last season’s Premier Division play-off final to Slough Town, sit just one place outside the relegation zone, but Ford believes they will be a tough proposition.

He said: “They’ve had a disappointing start, but they are a good side and had a good win in the FA Cup.

“I am sure we will be in for a difficult afternoon, and I would imagine they will finish a lot higher than the position they are currently in.”

Apart from Henderson, Ford names an otherwise unchanged squad.

Banbury Utd (v Kings Lynn Tn, away): from Harding, Hawtin, Martin, Finch, Wise, Bell, Self, Johnson, Shamsi, Kaziboni, Ngathe, Awadh, Rasulo, Odhiambo, Nash, Barnett.

North Leigh joint-manager Craig Dore believes their two-week break came at a good time.

The Millers, who entertain AFC Dunstable in Division 1 Central, have lost three matches in a row, including an 8-1 thrashing at home to Corby last time out.

Dore said: “The break has given us a chance to freshen up and recharge the batteries.

“Corby gave us a mauling – it just wasn’t good enough – and so the break definitely came at the right time for us.”

Ben Brown and Dan Newman are away for the Dunstable match, while Martin Griggs has left the club.

North Leigh (v AFC Dunstable, home): from Sanders, McEachran, Gunn, Peart, Simms, Tutton, Stevens, Landers, James, Pimm, Seacole, Hughes, Saunders, Alabi, Linford-Pill.

Basement side Kidlington travel to fellow strugglers Aylesbury, while high-flying Thame United are without a game.
