Following their 3 – 1 defeat at Hampton & Richmond, the Seagulls will look to pick up their first win of the season. Jamie Lucas got off the mark for the Seagulls on Saturday, and will be hoping for more goals this weekend, but Marc McGregor has a full selection of players to choose from on Saturday with everyone chomping at the bit to turn the side’s fortunes around.

Despite lofty ambitions at the start of the season, Hemel have gone winless since the second game of the season, where they got six points from their opening two games. Now sat in 17th, and nine points from nine games, The Tudors will be looking to former Watford right-back Lloyd Doyley to get their form back on track, and former Arsenal academy player Sanchez Watt will want to be in and amongst the goals on Saturday.

Last time Hemel visited the Woodspring, the Seagulls won 2 – 1. A Danny Greenslade own goal from a corner put the visitors ahead, before Jarrad Welch scored from long range with a stupendous strike to equalised on the brink of half-time. After the interval, a strong Jason Pope run and cross fell to skipper Jacob Cane, who tucked in via a deflection to give the Seagulls all three points on the final day of last season.
