Defenders provide a big boost for Moneyfields

Fareham Town need to be wary of ‘minnows’ Amesbury Town who visit Cams Alders in the first qualifying round of the FA Vase (3pm).

Amesbury play a league below but Reds manager Matt Parr insists there will be no complacency.

‘Southern League Wimborne underestimated us last week in the FA Cup,’ said Parr.

‘We must not make the same mistake.

‘Our performance in beating Wimborne last week was probably the best in the four years I have been here.

‘It is important that we carry on from that.

‘The FA Vase is a competition where clubs at our level can make an impact.

‘Other Wessex League clubs have done well in it in the past and there is no reason why we can’t.

‘A good run in the Vase creates a real buzz around the club.’

Fareham have doubts over Dave Birmingham (knee) and Rob Tambling (broken wrist).

AFC Portchester will also start as firm favourites against division one visitors Hythe & Dibden at Wicor Mill.

Hayling United face a tricky visit to fellow premier division hosts Verwood Town in the New Forest.

Elsewhere, division one Petersfield Town will look to surprise premier hosts Totton & Eling.

Away from the FA Vase, Moneyfields look to return to winning ways as they visit Lymington Town for a premier division contest.

The Copnor club exited both the FA Cup and the Wessex League Cup in the space of 48 hours last weekend.
