Horncastle Town could be without key defenders Chris Johnson and Nathan Rawdon for their Suplementary Cup semi final clash at Sleaford Town Reserves tomorrow (Saturday) ko: 2.30pm.

The duo are both struggling with injuries and the absence of skipper Johnson (hamstring) would be a particular blow to Town’s hopes of booking a place in the final.

Boss Paul Johnson will check on the fitness of both players before finalising his squad for what promises to be a cup cracker.

Town were beaten 4-1 at home by Sleaford earlier in the campaign but bounced back just seven days later to beat the same opponents 2-1 with goals from Olly Johnson (penalty) and Tony Edwards.

Edwards will be a key figure tomorrow as Town look to bounce back from successive defeats in the league against Nettleham and Gainsborough Town.

The Supplementary Cup represents a chance for Town to salvage some silverware from what has proved to be an inconsistent campaign.
