Aldershot Town Vs Hereford United, Mon 3 Jan 2011


Aldershot left-back Jamie Vincent completes his suspension when Kevin Dillon`s men host Hereford.

Vincent was dismissed for two bookable offences against Rotherham on December 11, triggering a two-match ban. And after sitting out the 2-1 win at Barnet on Saturday he will now serve his ban by missing the match against the Bulls.

Captain Anthony Charles returned to the starting line-up against the Bees following a hamstring injury that had kept him out since the start of November and, after coming through the match unscathed, is likely to keep his place.

Long-term absentees John Halls and Damian Spencer remain out with injuries. Transfer-listed midfielder Halls has been plagued by a groin injury for the last year or so and is still not fit, while former Cheltenham striker Spencer has a knee problem.

Defender Darren Jones was dropped to the bench for the New Year`s Day match after suffering from flu, with Jermaine McGlashan taking his place, but Jones is expected to have recovered and could win back his starting spot.

Hereford boss Jamie Pitman could name the same starting line-up for the second successive game.

The Bulls went behind twice against Torquay before earning themselves a valuable point with a 2-2 draw and, with no new injury or suspension problems, Pitman is likely to continue with the same XI.

Rob Purdie, who has been troubled by a tight hamstring, is unlikely to be risked by former physio Pitman until he is 100% fit and ready for a return, but Sam Gwynne will be assessed before the game to determine whether or not he is fit enough for a return to first-team action.

A win would not be enough to drag the bottom club out of the relegation zone but it would be a major boost in the Bulls` battle to avoid falling out of the Football League.
