The Nuts & Bolts will climb up five places if they beat Corinthian Casuals in the basement battle at the Homelands today.

Ashford signed three players on loan last week and Luke Coleman (who scored within two minutes of his debut), Drew Watkins and Adam O’Neill played during their 3-2 defeat at Maidstone United in midweek.
