Tomorrow afternoon we welcome league leaders Felixstowe & Walton United to The Glassworld Stadium for what promises to be a big game for both clubs.
It goes without saying that this is going to be a tough one but we’re in good form at the moment having won our last five (and ten of our last twelve) league games including that memorable win against Coggeshall last time out at The Glassworld.
Lance was pleased with how the team dealt with a difficult test at Hadleigh last weekend as it would have been easy for the players to switch off mentally a little after putting in such a strong performance in beating Coggeshall the previous weekend. The Gaffer was also pleased at how well new signing Rob Ruddy settled in to his defensive role after joining from Mildenhall Town last week.
Both Charlie Brown and Will Lawton remain out but the rest of the squad is in good shape and Lance may have a few selection decisions to make for this one.
Our visitors are 19 points clear at the top of the table of course and are there on merit. They are enjoying a fantastic season so far but will be aware of the threat posed by Coggeshall Town in particular who have five games in hand and could in theory close that gap to just 5 points whilst other teams are lurking too just in case the Seasiders slip up.
Up front they have been banging the goals in all season with 90 scored so far from 31 games. Miles Powell has 26 of those but Joe Francis and Scott Chaplin have weighed in with 18 and 15 respectively to underline their attacking threat.
Victory tomorrow would keep us in the hunt for the top 4 so get along to The Glassworld and cheer the lads on, it’s going to be a cracker!
