Achilles floored - by teammate!
4:10pm Friday 20th September 2013 in Sport
Eastleigh’s stalwart prop Dan Achillies has been sidelined after an accident during training this week.
The formidable prop underwent surgery following a collision where he suffered a head injury and the loss of teeth.
Andy King steps in for his first start with the firsts as they travel to Ellingham & Ringwood for the London 3 South-West clash.
Paul Fudio makes a return to the Eastleigh line-up after completing a 24-week ban after colliding with a referee during a match against Ellingham last season.
Both sides will be in confident mood after registering opening day victories – Eastleigh beat Purley John Fisher while the Es thrashed SW3 new boys New Milton & District.
Eastleigh captain Russell Smith said: “We are aware that Ellingham have bolstered themselves up front and we know their backs are handy.
“But with the performance we put in against Purley we are confident.
“If we are to end up fighting for a top three place then this is one of the games that is going to count.”
New Milton have fought hard to enter the London Leagues arena and will have to wait a little longer before they head towards the capital.
Milton go to Sandown & Shanklin hoping to put last week’s 57-12 home defeat behind them.
