Weekend Preview – Saturday 19th November –
The First Team have a rest this weekend, having had a game every weekend since the start of the season. Nine of which have been at home!
With no 1st team game at home this week the Reserves can actually play a home game. They host Kintbury Reserves at Tucker Park in a NBFL Div 2 league match, with a 2.00pm KO. The teams have already meet this season, with the Ressers recording their only win so far (2-1). Kintbury have also struggled this season, again only registering a single win. They sit 1 point above Faringdon, courtesy of a 0-0 draw against Hanney Utd.
Matt Willis and his team will be looking to complete a league double over their opposition and moving above them in the league standings. The Reserves lost 4-0 to Steventon last time out, finding themselves 3-0 down at half-time. But a stronger second half saw them create chances and only concede one further goal, giving them something to work from this week.
The A-Team are also back in action at home this week, after a 2 week lay-off they face Steventon Reserves in a 2.00pm KO. The A-Team find themselves in the top half of the league after a difficult start to the season and have picked up 4 points from their last two games. Last time out drawing 3-3 with Cumnor Minors. They led 3-1 with 20 minutes left, but tiring legs let Cumnor back into the game, nicking a point late on. Steventon have lost their last 3 games and sit a couple of places below the A-Team with 6 points.
