Midfielder Kavan Cotter has agreed a loan move to Wingate & Finchley until the end of the season after recovering from injury. Connor Smith still needs to serve two games on the sidelines after receiving a three-game ban for his red card against Dorking Wanderers.

WHO TO WATCH FOR
Danny Mills: Experienced centre-forward Mills is the Hamlet’s top scorer this season with 13 league goals. Despite Hamlet’s lack of goals in recent weeks, Mills has netted five goals in the last seven games and the away side will look to him to provide goals on Saturday.
LAST TIME OUT
Wealdstone suffered their first defeat of the season at Champion Hill back in August, Richard Orlu’s first half header proving too much for the Stones. Dennon Lewis made an impact as a second half substitute however, it was not Wealdstone’s night as chances missed the mark.
