Match Preview

Leicester Nirvana v Newport Pagnell Town
United Counties League, Premier Division
Saturday 14th November
Kick off – 15:00

Nirvana sit with a comfortable 13 point lead at the top of the UCL Premier Division, however, should Holbeach United and AFC Kempston Rovers win their games in hand they will be breathing down the necks of the Leicestershire side. The league leaders cemented their position with an emphatic midweek win over Desborough Town, bouncing back after a shock defeat to Cogenhoe United at the weekend. The win demonstrates Nirvana’s strength in that they score goals, in abundance, from all over the park. Five different players added to their goal haul in the 6-1 demolition of Ar Tarn.

A quick look at the statistics show that these are two entertaining teams and goals are virtually guaranteed when they play. The Swan’s have already found out that teams write Nirvana off at their peril. The sides have crossed paths twice in recent months with Nirvana running out victorious on both occasions. Nirvana will be wary of a Newport side that plays good, patient passing football. The Swan’s create many goal scoring opportunities themselves and but for a couple of defensive nightmares may easily have won both encounters played this season.

Leicester Nirvana manager Damion Beckford-Quailey was honoured by the UCL when he was named ‘Manager of the Month’ for September. I am sure that this will be the first of many accolades coming his way this season.
