CHIPPENHAM & DISTRICT SUNDAY LEAGUE DIVISION TWO PREVIEW: Buscots playing catch up
3:20pm Friday 17th January 2014 in Sport
DIVISION TWO pre-season title favourites FC Buscots, who have not featured in a league match since they beat Southwick Wanderers 9-3 at the end of November, will be hoping for some good weather as they look to get their title charge back on track.
Buscots, who are in third spot, have played just six games, four fewer than teams above them.
But they should claim three points from the visit of basement side AFC Avellinos, who they meet for the first time this term.
Table-topping Miller Sports A have the chance to pick up what would be another three valuable points in their promotion bid when they host Talbot FC.
Miller have yet to lose at the Beeches this term, so the odds are good on Mike Stevens' side taking the spoils from their Calne-based rivals.
Sutton Benger lock horns with local rivals Fortune Inn FC, who are another side who are lagging behind with their fixtures.
Should Budge Hylands' men click into gear in the second half of the campaign, they may have an outside chance of featuring in the promotion battle come the business end of the season.
Fortune need to start with a win against Benger and it would be a surprise if they didn’t pick up all the points of offer.
