Atherstone United v Burton Albion - Preview
[DR MARTENS LEAGUE PREMIER DIVISION]

Atherstone United face just about the toughest three days of their season so far.

On Saturday they travel to play Burton Albion in the league and then on Monday they take on Nuneaton Borough in the Dr Marten's Cup.

Manager Ron Bradbury is philosophical about the prospect facing his side. "We will give it a go," was his succinct response to the challenge.

He will include his new loan signing, central defender Nigel Niblett from Kidderminster Harriers.

"He has not played for 'Kiddy' in the first team, the reserves or even been on the subs bench and he was injured last season. But I know him and have seen him play many times. He is a quality player and there are no doubts in my mind that he will be an asset to our team," says Bradbury.

Niblett has joined Atherstone on a month's loan but there is little chance it will become a permanent move.

"I could not afford the transfer fee or his wages," says Bradbury.

Atherstone are still struggling with injuries and absentees. Gary Redgate has joined the injury list with a hamstring strain and Paul Olner is away on holiday. David Hart is just back after missing one month out with a hamstring.
