DIVISION THREE PREVIEW: Calne sides fight to avoid relegation
4:00pm Friday 9th March 2012 in Sport
THREE of the four teams fighting for Division Three survival are based in Calne and, at the moment, Talbot FC look the most likely to join Pig & Whistle United in Division Four next term.
Talbot, who have lost six on the trot, are tipped for another defeat when they host second-placed Somerford, who will move level on points with leaders Staverton with maximum points.
Bremhill View Boys are another of the sides in trouble but, with games in hand and a two-point advantage on the sides around them, Garry Marshall’s side should be safe.
Bremhill welcome an in0form Kings Arms (All Cannings) side to Beversbrook and although the home side won the reverse fixture 5-1, Kings Arms who are unbeaten in eight, should avenge that defeat from October.
North Star B complete the trio of clubs involved in the relegation dogfight.
Star have home advantage against GRFC and they will be hoping that they can bounce back from last week's 12-2 drubbing at Christian Malford.
That seems unlikely as the hosts have not won in five while GRFC have lost just once in nine.
However, seven draws in that period could present Star with a chance of victory.
Clive Black’s White Horse side are still in with a chance of finishing in third spot, but for them to do so they must win their remaining two matches.
White Horse welcome Corsham Park Rangers to Leighton Sports Centre this Sunday where they will be hoping to avenge their 2-1 loss from October.
With Corsham still in the hunt for a top-two finish the match could end in a narrow win for the home team ahead of the final game of the season with current leaders Staverton the following weekend.
