Sani missed the start of the season and didn’t play in Saturday’s 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Leiston, a first defeat of the Southern League Central Premier Division season for Sports.

Sports, who remain top of the table, need to improve on that performance quickly as promotion fancies Tamworth visit the Bee Arena tomorrow (September 14, 7.45pm).

“We weren’t very good on Saturday so we need to react well,” Sports boss Jimmy Dean said.
