Hampton and Richmond are looking to get back to winning way this evening as they travel to face second bottom Hungerford Town in National League South. 

The Beavers have lost four of their last five league matches and two wins in their first nine leaves them in 18th place in the league. 

Victory over Chippenham last Tuesday did not snowball into momentum as despite Jake Gray's late screamer on Saturday, they still lost 2-1 against Dartford at Princes Park 

Gary McCann will be hoping to arrest their stuttering start to the season starting tonight as they are once again on the road as they head to Berkshire to face a Hungerford side who have only amassed five points so far this season. 

However, The Crusaders' only victory of the season so far did come at Bulpit Lane, when they defeated Eastbourne Borough 2-0, with Joel Rollinson and Rhys Tyler getting the goals. 

Previous match ups between the two sides also favours the Beavers, winning four of the last five encounters, including an emphatic 7-1 win at the Rocket Hospitality Beveree Stadium back in 2020. 

Were they to lose this evening Hampton could be in real trouble as Hungerford have the opportunity to move above them, were they to win by three or more goals, although this seems unlikely as the Crusaders have only notched four times all season. 

Kick-off this evening at Bulpit Lane in Hungerford is at 7:45pm.
