BOSS Paul Collicutt warned Evesham United to improve their home fortunes or risk this season fizzling out.

The Robins have been turfed out of the FA Cup and FA Trophy on their own patch as well as suffering a Southern League West defeat to Wimborne Town.

United host Didcot Town at the Jubilee Stadium today (3pm) and Collicutt wants to see a reaction following Sunday's 3-2 FA Trophy exit to Cirencester.

“It is a big game for us, every one of them is now if we are going to try to do anything this season. We have to make sure our performances improve at home,” he said.

“We have made life difficult for ourselves. Three defeats at home is not good enough in my eyes.

“I say it to the lads time and time again, teams come here and raise their game but we have to be bigger than that and we weren’t over the 90 minutes on Sunday.

“We have to make sure we bounce back.”

Evesham’s task is not helped by doubts over the fitness of Archie Haskayne, Adam Mann and Paul Fahy, although Ethan Moore is available again after parent club Gloucester City requested for him not to play in the FA Trophy.

“Archie took a bit of a wallop to the back of his calf against Cirencester and received treatment this week,” explained Collicutt.

“Adam has a bit of a problem in the back of his knee and neither trained on Wednesday. They’re both 50-50.

“Paul has been ill all week with a chest infection so he is another doubt. We could be without two or three players.”

Elsewhere, Hereford travel to National League Eastleigh to face off for a place in the FA Cup first round proper and a cool £12,500 in prize money.

The host club has made admission available on the gate having initially announced it would be an all-ticket match but Bulls fans are reminded that there will be no bar facility in the away end.

In the Southern Premier, sixth-placed Redditch United host third-bottom St Ives Town (both 3pm).
