Robins on survival trailBy Tom Canning

Bracknell Town’s fight for survival was given a massive shot in the arm on Tuesday night following their 2-0 win over Paulton Rovers, with reportedly, just 12 fit players.
The Robins will close the gap further on Andover with victory over Uxbridge – who they beat 3-2 at the end of December, at the weekend, and manager Byron Walton is confident his players can put a run together and pull away from the bottom.
The Bracknell boss should welcome back key men Jamie McClurg and Adam Crittenden, though Dean Thomas remains a doubt with a hamstring injury. Walton, though, will find it tough to drop the in-form duo of Adam Cornell and youngster Ian Harvey.
Sandhurst Town’s bid for survival has been rocked by the news that Garry Sargeant and Carl Barrie have both quit the club following a spell on the sidelines
The pair departed Bottom Meadow after being kept out of the side by the form of veteran forwards Pete Mulvaney and Neil Selby.
Sargeant, who left previous club Bracknell Town in similar circumstances, has re-joined another former club in Hellenic Division 1 East side Binfield, while Barrie has returned to former club Finchampstead.
Garry Sargeant’s first game back at Binfield is a mouth-watering tie at struggling Rayners Lane in Division 1 East, while in-form Ascot United host bottom club Eton Wick.
Wokingham & Emmbrook and Finchampstead are both without games this weekend.
