Ashford look forward to the visit of league leaders Royston Town to Short Lane on Saturday.

Our opponents enjoyed an impressive sounding victory over 2nd placed Farnborough on Tuesday evening but not very long ago we came close at Royston, hauling ourselves back from three down to make it three apiece, only to concede two more in the closing minutes.

Past form against our opponents does not make great reading for Ashford supporters as we have yet to win in five previous encounters, the two previous home matches resulting in a 1-1 draw in the 2012-2013 season, our goal coming from Kofi Lockhart-Adams, and a 0-2 defeat in season 2013-2014.

The squad has been boosted this week by the signing of two players on loan from Barnet FC, namely Theo Alexis and Nathan Dennis.  Theo is a physical central midfielder whilst Dennis is a pacey full back.  We welcome them both to Short Lane.
