CHIPPENHAM SUNDAY LEAGUE DIVISION FOUR: Supporters’ desperate for a return to action
4:00pm Friday 1st February 2013 in Sport
TROWBRIDGE Town Supporters Club will be hoping for some respite from two months of bad weather as they look to get their Division Four promotion challenge back up and running.
Kevin Williams' side have not played a home game on their Bratton pitch since the middle of November and they have completed just one game since they beat FC United of Chippenham, the weather causing postponement of their last six games, five of them at home.
The supporters’ are due to host local rivals Trowbridge Rangers on Sunday and if the game goes ahead William’s men ought to take the spoils as they have already beaten Michael Goddard’s side 4-2 this term.
FC United of Chippenham are another side who are falling behind with their fixtures.
Dudley Philpott’s newcomers are scheduled to host leaders FC North Wiltshire at Stanley Park which has been unplayable for much of this campaign due to waterlogged pitches.
This will be the first time the sides have met so if United’s pitch if unplayable it is hoped that the teams will reverse the game to Leafy Lane but wherever the game is played North Wilts should emerge victorious.
Second in the table Old Road visit Goatacre for what could prove to be another banana-skin in their quest for a top two finish.
Andy Rose’s side go head-to-head with Melksham Cosmos and having ground out a 2-2 draw when they met back in October this is likely to be another game where Old Road could slip up.
If things go to plan the points will be heading back to Chippenham but a defeat for Old Road will as good as see their hopes of a top two placing disappear.
After losing out to Pig & Whistle United B in an 11-goal thriller last weekend, Oakhill will be hoping for a change of fortune when they welcome Crossblades to their Kington Langley base.
The hosts are currently bottom of the table while their guests who are having a great season are sitting pretty in fifth spot and although Tim Chilton’s visitors have not played since the start of the year they should kick-off February with a win.
Pig & Whistle United B, who ended their seven-match winless run with a exciting 6-5 success at Oakhill last weekend, will be hoping to avenge their 7-0 defeat at the hands to Worton & Cheverell (Sunday) from late October when the sides get together in West Lavington.
Worton, whose only game in January saw them romp to an 11-3 win over FC United of Chippenham, should have it in them to register another win over Adrian Skinner’s visiting United side.
