Family loyalty will go out of the window for 90 minutes at Westleigh Park tomorrow when the Hawks entertain St Albans City in the Vanarama National League South (3pm). Lee Bradbury finds himself up against his son, Harvey, who is on loan to the visitors from Premier League Watford.

The Hawks boss watched Harvey score on Tuesday against Bognor at Nyewood Lane. He netted in the 2-1 defeat after going on as a second-half substitute. The 19-year-old, who spent three years with Pompey, was snapped up by Watford after he was released from Fratton Park. Hawks boss Bradbury admits it is an unusual situation for both of them. They will both be hoping the other has a bad day on Saturday, especially with so much riding on the match.

He said: “You always want your kids to do well in whatever they are doing but not this week. Usually Harvey and I talk football all the time but we have put an embargo on that until after the game.”
