RIDGEONS PREMIER DIVISION PREVIEW SATURDAY 3rd MARCH 2012

Post  welshwatcher on Thu Mar 01, 2012 9:10 pm

CRC V FELIXSTOWE & WALTON UNITED
The Scholars lead what effectively is the best of the rest, with the top three looking ever more uncatchable a win here could stretch their narrow lead at the head of the next group. They face a Seasiders outfit that have performed better away from The Goldstar Ground than they have on home turf and the record at the Abbey Stadium is good. CRC’s home record is virtually mirrored by the Seasiders away results and an away victory win could almost seal the away sides Premier Division status.

DISS TOWN V HAVERHILL ROVERS
It has been an excellent couple of weeks for the home side, ending a run of three defeats with a draw against the third placed side and then collecting all three points last week against the fourth placed team while putting distance between themselves and the relegation zone. They face a difficult task to make it three good weeks against a Haverhill side that have had an erratic season so far, but they are in good current form having won five of their last six and they will be looking to make it four straight wins here.

ELY CITY V GREAT YARMOUTH TOWN
This is the match for the gambling man, the home side haven’t lost at The Unwin Ground all season and have won 12 of the 15 games played there. The Bloaters haven’t won away all season and have lost 13 of the 14 games played away from the Wellesley. Ely have scored 34 times at home, Yarmouth have conceded 48 times away. Ely are chasing the title, Yarmouth are doomed to relegation. What are the odds of Gt Yarmouth winning at least once away from home this season and what are the odds of them upsetting the applecart somewhere, perhaps not here though!

FC CLACTON V KIRKLEY & PAKEFIELD
The home side have been inconsistent over the season and the last six games with two of each results but they have become a difficult side to beat and are always competitive, a win here and results from their games in hand could see them knocking on the door of the top five so they have the incentive to get results. Their visitors also have that incentive as there is a real threat of relegation, they have lost three of their last four and their away record is not impressive but they too are always competitive and this is certainly no foregone conclusion for the home side.

GORLESTON V WIVENHOE TOWN
The home side sit in a healthy mid-table position and they would probably have settled for that after gaining promotion but they may well now feel they could have done better, having lost five times at Emerald Park this season. They ended a run of six games without a win with a 2-1 victory at Woodbridge last weekend but lost 2-0 at Broad Lane a month age. Wivenhoe have strung a set of decent results together including the win over their hosts and lost for the first time in five games last weekend and they will travel looking to gain some reward, this could be a tight affair.

HADLEIGH UNITED V WISBECH TOWN
The home side have picked up just one win from their last five games and lost at The Millfield last time out which was a fortnight ago and they have played just twice in the last month so they will be eager to stretch their legs. The visitors have played six times in the same period, three of which were league games, winning two of those and drawing the other so they are anything but ring rusty. The Fenmen have a decent record on the road and three points could lift them into fourth spot with plenty of games in hand but their hosts can rise to the big occasion so this to could be a tight affair.

NORWICH UNITED V WALSHAM Le WILLOWS
This is a tough game for both sides, the visitors are fighting for Premier Division survival and currently sit in the third relegation spot. The home side are experienced enough to know they cannot take the Willows lightly and are themselves looking to push up the table with games in hand over those immediately above them. The home side’s home record is not impressive but neither is the visitors record on the road but The Planters will look at this as a must win home game while the visitors would be happy to return home having avoided defeat.

WROXHAM V BRANTHAM ATHLETIC
The big one this weekend and without doubt Match of the Day. The Yachtsmen head the table with a one point advantage over the Imps, a plus 12 goal difference and two games in hand so the title is theirs to lose. For the visitors it is a massive game as a win would see those League Leaders on Saturday night. The reverse fixture back in early October ended 1-0 in Brantham’s favour, one of only two league defeats for Wroxham away from Trafford Park this season. The Yachtsmen’s home record is impressive as is their visitor’s away record. 142 goals scored between them and 56 conceded indicates this is unlikely to finish as a scoreless bore draw
