CHIPPENHAM SUNDAY LEAGUE DIVISION FOUR PREVIEW: Supporters’ Club playing catch-up
5:00pm Friday 11th January 2013 in Sport
TROWBRIDGE Town Supporters Club will hopefully get their second half of the season underway this weekend.
Kevin Williams' side, despite playing just seven games, remain in the Division Four promotion battle.
The supporters’ visit FC United of Chippenham who they edged out 5-4 in thriller back in November and if things go to form the visitors ought to take maximum points for a second time as they bid to stay in touch with the top sides.
Leaders FC North Wiltshire hammered Oakhill 10-2 when the teams last met and it would be a massive surprise if the table toppers didn’t complete a double over their hosts at Kington Langley.
The winning margin may be closer but the points are destined to go North Wilts way as they look to consolidate the number one spot.
Pig & Whistle United B are desperately trying to end a winless run that has risen to seven games, but their wait looks set to continue as next up for Adrian Skinner’s side are Crossblades FC, who themselves go into the game at Awdry Avenue looking to bounce back after a shock loss to Trowbridge Rangers.
The previous meeting of the sides finished one apiece but this one ought to go the way of the Blades.
Stanley Park is due to host the top of the table clash between third placed Sportzcoach Dragonz United and second-placed Old Road FC.
This will be the first meeting of the sides this term and will be a significant game in the promotion race, for Old Road it is a game they can’t afford to lose as defeat would see Sportzcoach, who have played four less games leapfrog them in the standings.
A close game is on the cards but who comes out on top waits to be seen and it wouldn’t be a surprise if the honours weren’t shared.
Worton & Cheverell (Sunday) suffered an 8-3 lose whey met Trowbridge Rangers back in early September, but since that defeat Worton have been the far better side.
Rangers ended an eight-match losing run last Sunday with victory over Crossblades, but Michael Goddard’s side will have to be at their very best if they are to deny Worton their fifth win over the season and revenge for their earlier loss.
