Martyrs bid to get back on track with promotion push.

MERTHYR Town aim to put their EVOSTIK Southern League promotion challenge BACK on course over the next four days.

Co-managers Garry Shephard and Danny Carter TAKE their team to Winchester City tomorrow (3pm) and then hit the road again on Monday to TAKE on leaders Hungerford Town.

The Martyrs, who have had solid runs in both FA Cup and FA Trophy competitions, stand eighth in the Premier Division with games in hand on all the teams above them.

Their cup exploits ended in a 2-1 defeat to Tonbridge Angels in the FA Trophy so now Merthyr can focus on league ambitions.

They travel to Winchester's Denplan Ground in the first of seven December fixtures, five of those being away from home.

Merthyr, promoted as champions in each of the last two seasons, follow trips to Winchester and Hungerford with fixtures against Yate Town (h), Wimborne Town (a), Swindon Supermarine (a), Cinderford Town (a) and Shortwood United (a) before the end of the year.

Central defender Jamie Rewbury returns at Winchester having missed the Tonbridge defeat through suspension.

Garyn Preen was sent off against the Angels after being BOOKED twice, but his suspension will be served in a fortnight.

But the Martyrs will be without the long-serving Steve Williams who sits out one game after being sent off at Poole.

Merthyr: (from) G Cutlan, A Thomas, G Colborne, A Griffiths, K LEEK, N Davies, L Jones, M Harris, G Preen, I Traylor, M Griffiths, R Prosser, J Welsh, R Newman, J Newall.

CAPTION(S):

Steve Williams, left, is suspended for tomorrow's game
