Football: Bedworth up against old boys; NON-LEAGUE FOOTBALL: Preview of the weekend's games.BEDWORTH UNITED have very little to lose when they travel to play-off hopefuls Brackley Town tomorrow.
The Saints are reported to have one of the biggest budgets in the league and have shelled out on some fine signings this season.
Six of their squad are former Bedworth players, including Paul Spacey spac·ey
Variant of spacy.
Adj. 1. spacey - stupefied by (or as if by) some narcotic drug
unconventional - not conventional or conformist; "unconventional life styles" and Lee Greenway, who were both at the Oval this season before moving on.
Brackley are nine points in front of the Greenbacks and won 4-2 at Burnham last Saturday, with Greenway notching twice on his full debut.
Bedworth boss Mark Hallam is likely to be without utility player Gilbert Cummins (groin groin, in oceanography: see coast protection. ), but he is not expected to make any changes despite last Saturday's 2-1 loss at Dunstable.
"It will be a tough game but we have nothing to lose," said Hallam.
"The pressure is on them, but I just want us to bounce back from the Dunstable game, which I thought was our poorest performance of the season.
"There will be a lot of rivalry in the game with the ex-Bedworth players now at Brackley, but I have no doubts my lads will be up for the game, they won't need any motivation. "We have bounced back well all season after poor performances and hopefully we can do the same again."
