CHIPPENHAM & DISTRICT SUNDAY LEAGUE PREMIER DIVISION PREVIEW: Derby day at Christie Miller
3:40pm Friday 17th January 2014 in Sport
SEMINGTON Rovers will make the short trip to Christie Miller for their derby day showdown with near neighbours AFC Melksham, hoping to claim what would be their first Premier Division win of the season.
Melksham themselves have zero points on the scoreboard but only because of the recent withdrawal of Steeple Ashton, so with both sides desperate for points, it makes for an interesting contest that should finish with Melksham claiming victory in the first of back-to-back fixtures for the teams.
A week after they were due to play each other in quarter-finals of the Knockout Cup, Westbury Rangers and The Castle FC will face each other in the league at Meadow Lane and on this occasion, Westbury manager Shaun Gardiner will be hoping that he will have a side to fulfill the fixture, unlike last week when a shortage of players led him to concede the cup tie to Tom Perkins' side.
Castle beat Westbury 5-1 when they met earlier in the season and the outcome should be another three points for the leaders.
