FUTURE LIONS UNITED COUNTIES LEAGUE-PREMIER DIVISION
NEWPORT PAGNELL TOWN v COGENHOE UNITED
KO 7-45 pm
Newport Pagnell Town are usually at the business end of the table so this has been something of a disappointing season thus far for the Swans. They currently sit 14th, 8 places and 11 points adrift of the Cooks, that said you certainly can't take them for granted and they will be on a high after beating Harborough Town on Saturday after a Dom Lawless goal gave them a 1-0 win. They have also tasted victory at Eynesbury (2-0) and O.N Chenecks at home (2-1) in recent weeks with their only defeat in the last five games coming in Kent when they lost 2-3 to Canterbury City in the F.A Vase.
We have already met this season at Compton Park and it was the Cooks who came out on top by two goals to one. Ryan Dove gave us a third minuted lead when he headed home Liam Tuck's cross, but it was one-apiece just before the hour when the ball cannoned in off the unfortunate Jamie Inwood for an own goal. Ryan Dove missed a penalty right on half-time, but made amends eight minuted after the break from another spot-kick that proved to be the winner.
Last year's trip to Willen Road made it a very Happy Christmas for the Cooks as three second half goals gave us a 3-0 win at the then league leaders. Ryan Dove hit a double that day too, sandwiching a Luis Vieira goal in the Boxing Day win.
