FA Vase sees Lingfield Visit Mayfield Stadium

4 months ago By Website Administrator

A fifth successive cup tie sees Lingfield FC come to Mayfield Stadium in this 2nd Qualifying Round tie.

Lingfield lost on Wednesday against Horsham YMCA after a run of 5 games without defeat. They currently sit in 9th place in the league having picked up 8 points from their six league games.

Kevin Rayner will field a more familiar side but will be keen to get back to winning ways after back to back defeats. Last Saturday's loss at AFC Uckfield Town was a difficult one to take having missed several chances and lost to a late goal by the hosts with their only shot on target. That said they battled well and if you can't score there can be no complaints. It was made more difficult when the draw saw the victors drawn at home to Dartford. But that is in the past and so must be the midweek defeat against Clapton in the London Senior Cup.

A victory for the Rams will see them equal their best ever run in the FA Vase. Lingfield visited Mayfield Stadium in a pre-season friendly which ended with a narrow victory for the Rams although that is unlikely to have any reflection on the game tomorrow.

Sunny intervals and a gentle breeze will see temperatures reach the 20s for matchday and create perfect conditions.
