Sherborne – who beat Chard 1-0 in the reverse fixture – have not won away in the league this season, with just two points from 10 fixtures on the road.

Chard, in third place, are unbeaten at home so far and have only lost once in their last 12 games; with the top two Cheddar and Keynsham clashing tomorrow, the Robins have a great chance to narrow the gap.

On the absence front, James Boyland – who has been ill – could be back tomorrow, while Tom Salter is in light training.

The trio of Tom Hargreaves, Jacob Manley and Sam Smith all came through a reserve team outing last Saturday.
