The first of 2 games in 5 days between Barwell and Rushall Olympic takes place on Tuesday 27th October with a 7.45pm kick off. This Pitching In Southern Premier Central game precedes a Buildbase FA Trophy game on Saturday at Rushall's ground. These 2 clubs have played each other many times over the years and these 2 encounters are likely to be closely fought.
Barwell lie in 21st position in the table but didn't play on Saturday due to Leiston's involvement in the FA Cup. Last time out the Canaries beat Nuneaton Borough 2-1 to gain their first win of the season. The 3 points from this win were added to the 1 that had already been gained in an away draw at AFC Rushden & Diamonds.
Rushall played on Saturday and were held at home by Kings Langley. This result, a 1-1 draw, left the Pics in 8th position in the league but the top half is very tight at this early stage of the season. Rushall also had a 1-1 draw in their previous match which was away at Lowestoft Town. They have scored 11 and conceded 11 goals in their 7 games and have 10 points. They have 2 wins this season, over Leiston on the opening day and at home to Bromsgrove Sporting.
The game is at the UK Flooring Direct Stadium with a 7.45pm kick off.
