RIDGEONS PREVIEW SATURDAY 22nd OCTOBER 2011

ELY CITY V CRC
These sides sit next to each other in the table with The Robins having a two point advantage having played two games less than their visitors. Something will have to give as CRC’s away record images the Robins home record with five wins, one draw and no defeats. CRC have the edge in goals having conceded just twice on their travels as opposed to the home side who have conceded seven at The Unwin Ground. Everything points to a draw, the sides met 11 days ago at The Abbey Stadium and shared six goals, Ely are unbeaten in eight while CRC have won their last five on the road.

GORLESTON FC V NEWMARKET TOWN
An excellent start to life back in The Premier Division sees The Greens sat in a very respectable eighth place in the table with just four points dropped at Emerald Park to date. The jockeys haven’t had too much success on the road, they have won once but have lost five times and this could be a difficult afternoon for them. The home side have conceded at more than a goal a game at home and Newmarket have scored at better than a goal a game on their travels so they could test their hosts here if they can stop leaking goals at over well over two a game.

GT YARMOUTH TOWN V HADLEIGH UNITED
Hard times for both clubs at present, The home side shipped five goals in midweek to add to the eight they conceded last Saturday and sit bottom of the table going into this game. Their visitors have conceded 10 in their last three games, six of those in midweek at The Millfield so are low on confidence but they may see this as a big opportunity to collect points against the home side who recently lost their manager. The Bloaters have the incentive that a win or even a point could lift them off the bottom while victory for the visitors could push them up towards mid-table.

KIRKLEY & PAKEFIELD V STANWAY ROVERS
It’s a month since The Royals last won at Walmer Road but they have looked more competitive since the arrival of new manager Paul Tong and they have taken four points off the current league leaders this month, including a 4-1 win at Aldiss Park. It will be a difficult ask for them here against a side looking to extend their unbeaten run into double figures and who have lost just once on the road this season, that back in August at Trafford Park. Stanway are not prolific scorers but grind out results while to home side have had a leaky defence all season that could see a change in fortunes if they can shore it up.

WIVENHOE TOWN V NORWICH UNITED
The Dragons have drawn and won once at Broad Lane this season but 12 goals conceded in six games tells its own story. The Planters have scored 13 times on their travels and have the added incentive of a win lifting them into second spot in the table with those around them on FA Vase duty. A home defeat could also condemn the hosts to bottom spot on Saturday night so both have plenty to play for. Wivenhoe always look competitive in midfield but fail in the vital area at each end of the pitch while their visitors have scored eight without reply in their last two games against sides immediately above the Dragons in the table.
