ORLETON manager Mark Hollis has been given a welcome selection headache for Saturday’s home game against Belmont Wanderers.

Striker Chris Breakwell is available again after family commitments ruled him out at the weekend – a match which saw the Herefordshire FA County League Division One side run out 4-0 winners at home to Hinton Reserves.

Sam Thomas stepped up to the mark with his side’s second and fourth goals after Nathan Hardisty had opened the scoring and Thomas’ brace sandwiched a Kyle Whitcase strike.

With Hollis having the luxury of having an almost – Breakwell aside – unchanged side for the first time this season, the manager might have a headache figuring out who, if anyone, will make way for the returning striker on Saturday.

The weekend’s victory sees Orleton fifth in the table almost a third of the way through the campaign, eight points shy of leaders Ludlow Town Colts, albeit having played one game more and nursing a vastly inferior goal difference.

On his side’s prospects is promotion, the manager said: “I don’t think that’s realistic, but you never know in football.”

Colts stayed top by piling on the misery for basement side Ewyas Harold Reserves.

The leaders cut loose to rout their hosts – who have yet to claim a point after six league games – 7-1 and stay ahead of Hinton, who have played two games more and now, thanks to Orleton, have a goal difference 22 worse than their title rivals.

Colts do not have a fixture on Saturday, so Hinton can go top with a positive result at fourth-placed Ross Juniors.

Premier Division strugglers Tenbury Town visit fifth-placed Fownhope on Saturday hoping to keep second-from bottom Tenbury United one place below them.

Neither side played at the weekend so Town stay one point ahead of their fellow strugglers, having won one and lost six league fixtures this season. United, who play at Malvern Town Reserves on Saturday, have two games in hand on their rivals, and a goal difference advantage of 15.
