Boro defender Ronnie Henry is winning the race to be fit for Saturday's Blue Square Premier clash against Hayes & Yeading.

The 25-year-old has missed Boro's last three games through an ankle injury but could be available for Saturday as Graham Westley's side go looking for their first win at home since beating Eastbourne Borough at the start of September.

Westley admitted it would be a real boost for his side if Henry can declare himself fit.

"It will be great news if he is back," said the Boro boss, who believes the former Tottenham trainee is capable of playing at a higher level. "He's a great athlete and a real threat going forward for us."

Hayes & Yeading winger Dale Binns gave Henry a torrid evening the last time the two teams met during the 1-1 draw back in August but Boro's ex-skipper was still feeling the after effects of an illness at the time.

Michael Brough has been standing in at right back since his loan move from Torquay United but, if Henry does come back in, he will be vying with Darren Murphy and Joel Byrom for the central midfield berths.
