Havant face a mission impossible as they play host to runaway leaders Canterbury in National League three London & south east at Hooks Lane (3pm).

The unbeaten visitors have already amassed 841 points this season, including an 81-15 win over Havant in Kent.

Havant are forced to field a much-changed team because of suspensions and unavailabilities.

Joel Knight and Pete Austin are both banned following their red cards against Staines last weekend, while Ross Parkin is unavailable.

Sam Cutting (prop), Jake Reynolds (scrum-half), Tom Southall (outside half) and Loz Blackburn (winger) all return to the starting line-up.

That will see Grant Morris move in to the centre.

Havant: Read, Blackburn, Gains, Morris, Robinson, Southall, Reynolds, Cutting, Elsmore, Marks, Roberts, Francis, Porter, Bellman, Barfoot.
