FREE-SCORING Moneyfields have their sights set on staying on the goal trail in the FA Vase tomorrow.

Miles Rutherford’s side travel to Bemerton Heath Harlequins in the second qualifying round.

Moneys have smashed in 10 goals in their past two outings to put them top of the Wessex League premier division.

Now they are looking to continue a run of seven wins from their last eight, ahead of a clash with fellow league pacesetters Petersfield Town on Tuesday.

Moneys are expected to be unchanged from the team who thumped Fareham 6-1 on Tuesday.

Rutherford said: ‘We played well the other night against Fareham.

‘We look like we can score goals for fun at the moment.

‘Confidence makes a difference, but we’re defending well, too.

‘We’ve played Bemerton and beat them, but they are now getting a side together. We won’t take them lightly.’

Petersfield will have to keep their eye on the ball as they travel to Fareham, ahead of their clash with Moneys.

Ian Saunders is without his major goal threat in Robbie Tambling (shoulder), with Jason Silver (hamstring) and suspended skipper Alex Ward also out.

Saunders said: ‘It’s been a fantastic start, but the FA Vase will give us a release from the league.

‘It will also give us a chance to get some cash into the club. It’s massively important to the lifeblood of Petersfield.

‘We have to stay focused on this game before looking to Tuesday.

‘Matt Parr has lots of experience and some real good players, but we are confident of getting a result.’

Horndean entertain Lymington at Five Heads Park. Alex Shephard is a doubt (back) but Lewis Stockford is available for selection after missing the 3-2 defeat to Whitchurch because of his birthday.

AFC Portchester go into their home clash with Hamworthy United in confident mood after two wins on the bounce.

The Royals turned over Alresford Town and Verwood Town in their past two outings.
