Season so far
Frome have made a very good start to life in the Premier Division and currently sit eighth in the table having won six of their eight games.
Darren Perrin’s side are yet to draw on their travels having won four of their six away games including last time out when they beat City’s Herts’ neighbours Hitchin Town 3-1.
Town’s two away losses came at Evesham United – where they lost to a 95th minute goal – and Oxford City.
Since losing to Oxford, Frome have won both of their games coming from two goals down to beat Redditch before collecting all three points at Hitchin.
Team v Hitchin: Chitty; Brigham, Evans, Flockton, Bennett, Smith, Miller, Evans, Bennison, Perrott, Thomson.
Rob Haworth has made good progress this week after limping out of Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Arlesey Town but the centre forward may still miss out while Paul Furlong could also come into contention having not featured since City’s 2-1 loss at Stourbridge.
There will be no CITYLIVE coverage of this game.
