Australian under-21 international Dan Robertson makes his debut for Fareham away to Exeter University this Sunday (12.30pm).

Robertson arrived last week and played two games for the second team to acclimatise, but Mo Rahman has gone back to Guildford.

Fareham are unbeaten in their past three games in National league conference west and have started to turn around a poor start to the season.

Exeter are one place above their rivals in sixth spot but the visitors would leapfrog their hosts with a win.

Performance director Ben Barnes said: ‘We have strength in our bench now, with Josh Godfrey to come back in and Dan Robertson arriving.

‘I am really looking forward to the Exeter game, as our forward press and attacking shape is really starting to bear fruit.

‘Exeter are the in-form side after earning a draw against unbeaten league-leaders Cardiff, so they will prove to be tough opposition for us.’

Jon Price is unavailable for the match due to a hamstring injury.

Meanwhile, Fareham Ladies travel to Surbiton IIIs in South Clubs’ Women’s League division three B tomorrow (1pm).

Fresh from their cup success last week, Havant host Oxford University in South Premier division one – also tomorrow (1.30pm).

Captain Raj Laly who dislodged his front teeth last Saturday has been advised not to play, while Sandeep Singh is still recovering from a back injury.

Ollie Nail and Adrian are both out, but Duncan Marsh is back in contention following his hamstring tear.

Havant currently sit second in the table on 12 points, with the best goal difference in the league.

Oxford University lie in seventh place with two wins and a draw.

Havant ladies return to action in South Clubs’ Women’s League division one with a trip to seventh-placed Oxford University (12.30pm).
