CHARD Town have another tricky away fixture on Saturday when they visit Bristol side Oldland Abbotonians in the First Division of the Toolstation Western League (ko 3pm).

Unpredictable Oldland are currently 16th of the 20 teams but Chard will have to be at their resolute best to overcome them.

Chard manager Jamie Manley should have an improving player situation this weekend.

Ben Haines, Nathan Warren, Liam Cleal and Steve Friend should all be available to return.

Striker James Boyland is rated no more than 50/50 with his hamstring strain, while Tom Salter strained his knee ligaments at Radstock and is receiving treatment.

Jacob Manley, who was due to start last weekend, rolled ankle ligaments in the warm-up and will be out for three-four weeks.

Chard Reserves, whose match was postponed last weekend, are home to third-placed Chagford in Division 1 of the Macron Devon & Exeter league on Saturday (ko 3pm).

Chard Under-18s, currently top of the Southern section of the Somerset Floodlight Youth league, entertain Street on Tuesday (December 4), ko 7.30pm.
