Ogogo fit and ready for tonight's match at Underhill

Last updated : 27 January 2009 By Jaybee

Abu Ogogo, who has signed on loan for the rest of the season from Arsenal, is fit and ready to start for tonight's match at home to Shrewsbury. He could play at right back replacing Max Porter if Ismail Yakubu misses the game through injury and Joe Devera has to deputise alongside Gary Breen at centre back.

Ogogo could also play in midfield, where Michael Leary is available again after missing the Accrington match through suspension. However, there is a lot of competition for the central midfield places. Joe Tabiri played there alongside Neal Bishop at Accrington and manager, Ian Hendon may decide to keep the same midfield paring for tonight's match. He could also call on Max Porter, if Ogogo is chosen to play at right back or Nicky Deverdics, who seems rather out of favour at the moment.

Meanwhile, Kenny Gillet who was sent off at Accrington has been handed a four match suspension. Nicky Nicolau is almost certain to replace Gillet for tonight's match but it will be interesting to see who is chosen as captain in Gillet's absence.

Ashley Carew made his debut for Eastleigh on Saturday in their Blue Square South match at home to Team Bath, Carew, who is on a month's loan from Barnet, was on the losing side as the visitors won 3-1. Former Bees, Tony Taggart and Warren Goodhind were also in the Eastleigh line up.
