Fixture: Shepshed Dynamo v Coventry Sphinx
Date: Tuesday 2nd October
Venue: The Dovecote Stadium, Butthole Lane, Shepshed, LE12 9BN
Fifth place Coventry Sphinx travel to Leicestershire to take on Shepshed Dynamo. Sphinx were soundly beaten on Saturday and will be looking to make a positive response to that setback.
COVENTRY SPHINX: A rare league defeat for Coventry Sphinx on Saturday but they remain unbeaten on the road in the league. Victory at Wulfrunians and draws at Highgate and Westfields have produced the points so far.
THE OPPOSITION: Shepshed have played just four of their ten league games at home so far and sit in 15th place in the division. Goals have been a feature of many of their recent fixtures and that is highlighted by their 3-3 draw at Lye Town at the weekend. Home defeats have come against Ilkeston, Worcester and Walsall Wood with their most recent home match ending in a 4-1 victory against Wolverhampton Sporting
PREVIOUS MEETINGS: Early last season Sphinx were beaten 1-0 at Sphinx Drive with the winner coming from Alex Troke who now plays for Bedworth United. In the return fixture Sphinx were convincing winners with doubles from Faulkner and Harkin plus a strike from Towers taking them to a 5-2 victory.
BAR FACILITIES: There is a bar available inside the ground.
