CHIPPENHAM SUNDAY LEAGUE DIVISION THREE PREVIEW: Beversbrook set for derby day showdown
4:00pm Friday 14th December 2012 in Sport
IT may not be the glamour game of this week's Division Three fixture programme, but the match at Beversbrook between Calne-based rivals Bremhill View Boys and North Star B is certain to get the pulses racing.
Bremhill are currently winless and in the bottom two while the Star are just above them but well clear of danger and with a 100 per cent success record from their derby day duels to date, Lee Lovelock’s side should complete a double over their hosts who they beat 7-0 in November.
FC Buscots, who just managed to hold onto the 100 per cent start last weekend with a nail-biting 4-3 success over Bremhill View Boys, will have to raise their game at Christian Malford or the villagers, who have already suffered a 3-1 loss at the hands of their guests, could avenge that loss and bring an end to Buscots eight-match winning run.
It will be a big ask for Malford but with three wins from five games they have turned things around after defeat in their first four game. The result should be close and Malford are tipped to upset the formbook.
Leaders Corsham Park Rangers get together with Fortune Inn who have not played a league game since the end of October but are still very much in the promotion race.
Budge Hylands' side know that this is a must win game for both teams and although they may be short of competitive football the Chippenham-based side will give Rangers a good game and have a chance of getting at least a point from what should be a thrilling contest.
Three defeats on the bounce is not the ideal preparation for Pack Horse Rangers ahead of their game with PSC Galaxy, especially as one of those losses was away at Galaxy who beat Paul Kidley’s side 7-1 just over a month ago.
Galaxy may have suffered defeat for the first time in 28 games last time out but they should have few problems in getting back to winning ways when they visit Stanley Park.
A week after Talbot beat Pig & Whistle United A 2-0 the two sides go head-to-head again and for a second successive week Victor Long’s Talbot side are predicted to take maximum points.
United have not in six while their guests at Awdry Avenue have lost just once in he last five making them good value to claim a fourth straight and help them consolidate fourth spot.
