RIDGEONS PREMIER PREVIEW SATURDAY 5th NOVEMBER 2011

Post  welshwatcher on Thu Nov 03, 2011 11:14 pm

CRC V WIVENHOE TOWN
The Scholars will be hoping to arrest their poor home form which has seen just one win in eight against a side that has yet to pick up a point on the road after nine away days. It’s a funny old game as they say with that single home win against the current League leaders, on the other hand the visitors have managed to lift themselves out of the relegation spots with two straight wins. What may have appeared a home banker a month ago, no longer looks that way, CRC should have the edge but I doubt many betting men will have money on it.

DEREHAM TOWN V WOODBRIDGE TOWN
They may be top of the league but The Magpies home record is not perfect having lost twice so far, they have scored freely, 24 in nine home games but have also conceded at more than a goal a game. On the plus side they are on a four match unbeaten run that has produced 13 goals with the back door shut in two of those games. The Woodpeckers have a respectable away record with two wins and two draws from six trips and they have scored at better than two a game on their away days while conceding the same away as Dereham at home.

ELY CITY V GORLESTON
The Greens sit comfortably in mid-table and will not be disappointed with their overall results following promotion, just four defeats from 14, a healthy goal difference and some decent unbeaten runs, unfortunately one of those ended last week at home so they will look to get back on track here. Both Ely defeats this season have come away from the Unwin Ground, but they have also won and drawn two on the road and are becoming a difficult side to unlock home or away. It is now ten games and Mid-August since they lasted tasted League defeat so their confidence will be sky high.

FC CLACTON V NORWICH UNITED
It was mid-October the home side last played at the Rush Green Bowl in the league and they lost on that occasion, their away record is better than at home so their visitors may feel they can collect something from this trip, but, The Planters suffered a shock defeat a fortnight ago at Wivenhoe and followed up with a home defeat against in form Wisbech Town. The defeat at Broad Lane saw them slip out of the top three while the hosts have lost just once in eight. It would take a brave man to predict this result although both managers will feel there are three points on offer.

FELIXSTOWE & WALTON UNITED V GREAT YARMOUTH TOWN
The worst home record in the Division against the second worst away record, The Seasiders have scored just five times at The Goldstar Ground in the league while their visitors have scored eight on their travels. Both are on a boost at present, The home side have put together a four match unbeaten run in all competitions while The Bloaters halted a run of nine Straight defeats in midweek with a share of the points against Diss Town at The Wellesley. The two have met once already, in The Vase when the Seasiders went nap to equal their total for seven home league games.

HADLEIGH UNITED V WALSHAM Le WILLOWS
There have been plenty of coming and goings at The Millfield and the home side have been unpredictable this season, but they have won their last two, collecting an excellent result at Emerald Park last week to add to a successful day out in the holiday town the previous week. Their visitors look in a false position, although they say tables don’t lie, they were last season’s draw specialists and have shared the points in their last three games, but they sit one off the bottom and need to turn draws into wins if they are to survive.

HAVERHILL ROVERS V DISS TOWN
Rovers started the season well, losing just one, and that the first, of their opening seven league games and many thought they could be contenders this season but now they will be hoping to halt a run of five straight league defeats that has seen them concede 14 goals. Their visitors will be happy with their form, sitting in a comfortable mid-table spot with a win and two draws from their last three away games. The Tangerines have won three and drawn three of their nine games away from Brewers Green Lane so will look forward to this encounter.

MILDENHALL TOWN V WROXHAM
A big game for both clubs, both have an eye on higher things but neither has looked totally convincing, The Yachtsmen have won just one of their last four and lost and drawn their last two at Trafford Park, they have the games in hand to catch and pass the current leaders but of course they have to win them. Mildenhall have won four times on the road, but have lost as many and have a negative goal difference away from Rec’Way, they have also lost their last two, both away, conceding six against the only side currently above Wroxham in the table.

NEWMARKET TOWN V BRANTHAM ATHLETIC
The visitors are the current ‘in form’ side in the league having won their last five and sit in third place, their hosts are in the bottom three and have lost three of their last four, back to back wins at the beginning of October lifted them off the bottom of the table but they have found points hard to come by so far with just six from a possible 27 so far at home and 21 goals conceded. This could be a difficult afternoon for the Jockeys against free scoring Brantham who have netted 25 times on their travels so far this season.

WISBECH TOWN V STANWAY ROVERS
This would be my Match of the Day, two points separate them in the table, Stanway have the points advantage while The Fenmen have two games in hand. The Fenmen have won four and drawn one of the five games since the 9-0 debacle against Mildenhall, including a victory over the current leaders. Stanway have gone eleven unbeaten although while eight have been won, three of the last four have been draws, but only one defeat on the road to date and 14 scored in seven games. It’s a close as could be, it looks a good bet for a draw, but I think there will be a positive outcome for one of these side, just a matter of which one.
