It's bottom versus top, already a difference of 44 points between the teams with still more than a quarter of the season to go. It should be an away win for Ware but we all know how easily these games can be turned on their heads. And Northwood has not always been a happy hunting ground for us and Paul Halsey.
Last year their ten men scored a late equaliser in a 2-2 draw and Paul won't want reminding of our match there in August 2009. There again you have to have faith in the team and confidence in their ability. A win will keep us top of the division and most of us are sure we can do it.
Whether or not that faith is borne out, we will be looking for other results to go our way. In particular that means Waltham Abbey getting at least a draw at Hanwell and Harlow doing us a similar favour at Westfield. These are exciting times with other games almost as important as our own.
Back to this game in which Northwood will take the field on a run of nine defeats since they last won a league game (2-1 at Harlow on November 30th). Since Ware's 4-0 loss at Westfield they have won five and drawn the other of six league games.
Northwood will be without Mileno Ribeiro Sanches who was red carded on his debut for the club in January's 5-2 defeat at Waltham Abbey. Ware have no suspensions and no apparent injury problems.
