Wantage Town striker Jimmy Deabill could return to the starting line-up when they travel to Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier Division leaders Ardley United tomorrow.

The former Oxford City hitman completed his recovery from a three-month lay-off with an ankle injury by coming on as substitute in their 3-0 win at Thame and is pushing for a start.

Tom Malton, Andy Younie and Stuart Cattell all return to the squad.

Earlier in the season, Wantage lost 1-0 at home to Kevin Brock’s side whom they trail by four points, but with three games in hand.

Ardley chairman Norman Stacey said the club were looking forward to the top-of-the table clash.

“This will be a massive game for both sides in the race for the league title, with others who are closely looking on.”

Kidlington will be without Shaun Morgan for the visit to Binfield.

The central defender suffered a severe hamstring injury in the goalless draw against Ardley.

Liam Rice, Tommy Castle, Lewis Coyle, Chris Weedon and Tom Boxer are added to the squad.

Jermaine Ferreira could make his debut for Division 1 East leaders AFC Hinksey at third-placed Milton United.

The ex-Abingdon United frontman is added to a squad boosted by the return of skipper Julian McCalmon and first-choice keeper Jon Beames.

Kieran Davis starts the first of a two-match suspension.

Tomorrow’s squads

Kidlington (v Binfield, away): from Hyslop, C Weedon, Mills, Rice, B Weedon, Willoughby, Boxer, Burton, Brownhill, Quainton, Ulug, Cassettari, Woodbridge, Castle, Coyle, Bone, Duerden, Green.

AFC Hinksey (v Milton Utd, away): from Beames, Brackett, C McMahon, Haines, Webster, John McMahon, Thomas, Curtin, Constant, Odhiambo, Dunmall, Clark, Jamie McMahon, McCalmon, Ferreira, Joseph.
