Burnham FC: Shone wants Burnham to ' bounce back' against Milton United on Saturday.

Burnham FC will be hoping to get back to winning ways after their shock defeat at the hands of local rivals Holyport FC last weekend,as they take on Milton United this Saturday.

Burnham boss Paul Shone admitted there will be changes following his side’s first league defeat in 15 games after performance levels didn’t reach the mark at Summerleaze: “Personnel will definitely change – players who played well were told and those who under-performed have been told too. We carried too many players (against Holyport) – you can have one or two but not five or six players under-performing so personnel will change.”

Shone’s men go into the game off the back of a promising friendly with Bracknell Town, a side who sit second in the Isthmian South Central, two leagues above Burnham, but Shone was happy with his teams performance: “We lost 3-1 but they are a good side, that are two leagues above us.

"There were a few new lads who played so they’ll be in contention for the game on Saturday. But I was pleased- the boys responded well”

Burnham won’t want to drop anymore points in their title hunt as they travel to face a struggling Milton United side on Saturday, who haven’t won in the league since December - picking up their last three points against Burnham’s opponents last weekend Holyport.

“You have to win the battle before you win the war," said Shone.

“So for sure we have to bounce back on Saturday.

“We’ve got a few players back from suspension but we just need a lot more energy and a better performance."
