PETE Beadle has to make a tough selection choices for Saturday's game after some impressive performances mid-week.

Rob Purdie missed Tuesday night's games against Gosport Borough due to work commitments and was replaced by 22-year-old Leominster boy Billy Murphy.

Lance Smith and Jordan Cullinane-Liburd all missed the game for the same reason.

"The players have shown their commitment and sacrifice to be here so when one door closes another one opens," said Beadle.

"Billy (Murphy) has come here tonight and done extremely well, Elliot (Richards) and Pablo (Haysham) have also done well. Once the players have got the shirt now they don't want to let go and that healthy competition bodes well.

"It's no headache and the way they have played tonight it will be difficult to leave any of them out. We don't know what's going to happen between now and Saturday and we have learnt not to count our chickens or look to far ahead."

Beadle denied rumours that any new faces would be arrived at Edgar Street before the end of the season amid rumours of another striker arriving.

"We have got a really strong squad with five substitutes who are all starters and three also unavailable, added Beadle.

"Why would I want another player to add to that? Unless we have any serious problems then we don't need anybody at the moment and are fully equipped to finish the season off."

Mike McGrath is also returning to fitness and is expected to make a return in the coming weeks.

At the table topping clash at Edgar Street on Saturday the local children’s mental health charity, The CLD Trust, will be having a bucket collection.
