RIDGEONS PREMIER DIVISION PREVIEW SATURDAY 15th OCTOBER 2011

Post  welshwatcher on Thu Oct 13, 2011 9:01 pm

DEREHAM TOWN V MILDENHALL TOWN
Top of the table hosting third place must make this Match of the Day with Wroxham sandwiched between them away on the FA Cup trail. The Magpies have now lost three of their last five after winning six of their opening seven games when they threatened to make the League a catch me if you can affair. The ‘Hall have won three of their last five and had midweek Cup success at in form Brantham so will travel with plenty of confidence to make this an intense affair and it would be a brave neutral who would predict the outcome.

DISS TOWN V GORLESTON
These two promoted sides meet for the first time this season with Diss halting a three match losing run in midweek with a single goal win at Plantation Park and they will be happy to be placed in mid table with a quarter of the season gone. Their visitors have made the better start to life in the Premier Division, they have lost just three times and have games in hand over most of the sides above them and arrive at Brewers Green Lane fresh from inflicting the second defeat in four days on the previously unbeaten Wroxham.

ELY CITY V WIVENHOE TOWN
This is a difficult day out for the Dragons, the Robins form record is in the top three at present and they have now gone five games unbeaten having lost just twice this season. The Unwin Ground is always a difficult venue for visitors and they are unbeaten there so far. Wivenhoe are bottom of the same form table and have lost all eight away days to date conceding 20 goals along the way. While the visitors always show a positive attitude they may have to wait a little longer to get some joy on their travels.

FELIXSTOWE & WALTON UNITED V CRC
The home side threaten to score a hat-full of goals in most games they are involved in but fail to fire in front of goal and leak goals at the other end. They have won just once at The Goldstar Ground this season and that against the bottom club. They have one record on their side that they have never lost to their visitors but that record may be tested here. CRC are inconsistent but have yet to lose away from the Abbey Stadium this season and they too will be aware of their record against the home side and will want to end that run.

GT. YARMOUTH TOWN V FC CLACTON
The Bloaters start the day in the bottom two with just one win all season although that was at the Wellesley and against high flying Brantham so they have shown they can score goals but they have lost their last three under their new management conceding 13 goals. Their visitors sit mid table with games in hand over all the sides above them and are currently on a four match winning run that they will be looking to extend here. They have won three times on their travels and have a positive goal difference that may be improved here.

HAVERHILL ROVERS V BRANTHAM ATHLETIC
Rovers started the season well with just one defeat in their opening seven games but they have now suffered four straight losses to slip down the table although only one of those defeats was at The New Croft and that against the current league leaders. They may well be fully tested here against the free scoring visitors who have netted over 30 times in their ten league games to date and are on a three match winning run, including inflicting the first league defeat of the season on Wroxham.

NORWICH UNITED V NEWMARKET TOWN
The Planters are an enigmatic side having won half their 14 opening games but four of their five defeats coming at Plantation Park and against sides they might well have expected to take points from. Their visitors looked entrenched at the foot of the table following five straight defeats but turned that round with wins in the last two games and seven goals scored so this may well not be a home banker although current overall form favours the home side.

STANWAY ROVERS V WALSHAM Le WILLOWS
The home side dropped their first points in eight games last week with a draw away at Woodbridge to end a superb seven match winning run and they will be looking to get back on the winning trail here. Walsham have yet to collect a point from four games on the road to date and have lost their last two at Summer Road without scoring so this could prove a difficult afternoon for them at The Hawthorns.

WISBECH TOWN V KIRKLEY & PAKEFIELD
Although the Fenmen have only lost three times, two of those defeats have been in their last five games including that no infamous 9-0 drubbing at Mildenhall. It would be wrong to underestimate them as they are still a very competitive outfit and will still have a firm eye on promotion this season with over three quarters still to go. Their visitors have produced a couple of positive results following the appointment of Manager Paul Tong but have still lost three of their last five. They will take confidence from their last away day when the hit four past the current leaders at Aldiss park 10 days ago.
