OXFORD City welcome back defender and captain Lee Henderson when they host fellow strugglers Weston-super-Mare tonight.

Henderson returns from suspension for the Vanarama National League South match, following his red card against Welling on Saturday, August 26.

City were pegged back three times to be held to a draw by East Thurrock United on Saturday, and boss Mark Jones is happy to have the talented defender back in contention.

Jones said: “The league is very open, and anyone can beat anyone.

“Weston have picked up a little bit over the last few games, but it’s a game we need to


“I expect another open game, but I’d quite happily take a scrappy 1-0 win to be honest.

“We’re always going to score goals, and we are doing, but our problem remains keeping them out at the other end.”

Oxford City (v Weston-super-Mare, home): from Stevens, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Grant, Poku, Henderson, Navarro, Oastler, McEachran Fleet, Paterson, Sinclair, Pearce, Forde, Jones, Hirst, Bennett.

Banbury United, who lost their 100 per cent record in a 4-3 defeat by Frome Town on Saturday, will look to return to winning form when they entertain Redditch United in the Evo-Stik South League Premier Division tonight.

The Puritans dropped from first to third following that defeat.

l CLANFIELD 85 will be away to Ampthill Town in the second qualifying round of the Buildbase FA Vase on Saturday, September 23, following their 2-1 victory over Holmer Green.

The Uhlsport Hellenic League side came from behind to beat their South Midlands League opponents on Saturday thanks to second-half goals from Callum Miller and substitute Karl Roberts.

Ampthill, also from the South Midlands League, thrashed New College Swindon 10-0 to reach this stage.
