HISTON v ILKESTON TOWN
Pitching In Northern Premier League Midlands Division
Saturday 8th January 2022
Kick off @ 3.00pm
Match sponsored by: Simple Office Systematics
**As the pitch is currently very wet and there is potentially significant rainfall forecast from early tomorrow, provisional arrangements have been made for a pitch inspection in the morning should it be necessary. Having liaised with Ilkeston officials, if an inspection is needed a decision will be made by the match referee by 10am and will be publicised as soon as possible after.**
Ilkeston Town come to The Bridge tomorrow as league leaders, three points clear of Halesowen Town and well placed in their push for automatic promotion up to Step 3.
The Robins are obviously in good form and have won 8 of their away games so far, the most recent being a 1-0 win at Shepshed Dynamo just after Christmas. Good results mean plenty of goals as well and the Robins lead the way with 63 so far and Zak Goodson as 16 of them. Stutes supporters will need little reminding that rather too many of those goals cam against us back in October but that game marked something of a turning point for us and Lance will be expecting a different performance in the return game at The Bridge tomorrow.
As usual the Gaffer has had to deal with numerous injuries disrupting preparations over the last few weeks and months but last weekend saw both Bernat Burguera and Evan Key make the bench after significant time away. Ryan Towner and Tobi Lawal could all also be back in contention this weekend as we look for the points that will help to move us away from the danger zone.
