Nuneaton Borough v Atherstone United - Preview
[DR MARTEN'S LEAGUE PREMIER DIVISION]

Atherstone United have no match on Saturday but they have plenty to occupy their thoughts, particularly Tuesday’s tough trip to play their old foes Nuneaton Borough in the Dr Marten’s Cup.

United had the better of the first leg at Sheepy Road and take a 2-1 lead into the second leg at the Manor Park ground.

But manager Ron Bradbury is under no illusions about the magnitude of the task facing them.

They have been through the script before. The sides drew 0-0 at Sheepy Road in the F.A. Cup in October and Borough won the replay by 3-0 at Manor Park.

"It will be very tough and we are the underdogs," says Bradbury. "But we know that if we keep a clean sheet we shall be through to the next round."

Bradbury has some selection problems.

Gary Redgate is out for six weeks with a knee injury and Boyd Young will also miss the Christmas games after being taken to hospital during last weekend's match against Hastings. He needed stitches in an ankle wound but nerve damage has numbed the joint and he could be out for several weeks.

Nigel Niblett meanwhile has rejoined Kidderminster Harriers at the end of his one month loan. On the plus side Atherstone have striker Richard Landon on loan from Macclesfield.

He scored and knows that if he continues to find the net he has an outside chance of playing for Macclesfield in the F.A. Cup against Coventry City.
