Banbury United manager Paul Davis believes his side can still be a threat in tonight’s (Tuesday) Evo-Stik Southern League clash at Poole Town despite being without several players.

Joel Meade and Hicham Abdellah are unavailable through work commitments and Jordan Green is ruled out with the hip injury which forced him to miss Saturday’s 3-0 victory over Weymouth.

Title-chasing Poole are four points behind premier division leaders Corby but have two games in hand on the Steelmen.

The Puritans lost by a solitary goal against Poole on the opening day of the season but Davis said: “If we can keep it tight at the back I’m sure we can still offer a threat going forward with the pace we’ve got up front.

“The pressure is on Poole but, although they’ve lost two of their last three games, they are a much stronger team at home.”
