MATCH PREVIEW : Leicester Road visit Silkmore tomorrow

2 months ago By Adam Checkley

The Badgers will be looking to carry on recent good form with the visit of Leicester Road.

It's back to league action tomorrow as we face an improving Leicester Road at Silkmore Lane. With changes to the squad at Leicester Road over the summer, the Hinckley based side will be looking to build on recent league form with two wins in a row. A 5-1 win at home over Littleton was preceded with a 6-2 mauling of Cadbury Athletic away, lifting the visitors to 13th in the league.

However a 3-0 loss away to Premier Division Coventry Sphinx last time out in the League Cup, the visitors will be looking to return to winning ways. Those two last away wins mean its now 3 wins and 4 losses in 7 away games, a stat the Badgers will be hoping stays as 3 wins.

The Badgers enter the game in excellent form having climbed to 5th in the league having won 5 games in a row in all competitions, including the excellent FA Vase run and a league cup win midweek to local rivals Heath Hayes. Kevin also has two new players entering the fray with Jordan Broome and James McGrady joining from higher league AFC Wulfrunians and Romulus.

It promises to be an intriguing match between two good sides, so come down and support the lads in trying to make it 6 in a row!
