CHIPPENHAM SUNDAY LEAGUE DIVISION THREE PREVIEW: Derby day at Priestley Grove
3:30pm Friday 26th October 2012 in News
AFTER picking up their first win in 10 games last weekend with a victory over Pack Horse Rangers, North Star B will go into their local Calne derby at Talbot FC as their battle to stay in Division Three continues.
Talbot won both meetings between the sides last term and being the inform side of the two this term they should collect maximum points for a third successive game and with them claim the local bragging rights until the side clash again later in the season.
Bottom of the table Cavalier won’t be looking for to a visit from fourth placed Fortune Inn.
Budge Hylands' visitors to Sands Lane, Rowde put 24 past their hosts in their two meetings last term and Roger Wiltshire’s side will be fearing the worst again.
Fortune have so far netted 32 in four games and they should have a field day come Sunday morning with another high-scoring win.
After pulling out of their gladiatorial clash against Fortune Inn last weekend, FC Buscots face what should be another difficult game at Corsham Park Rangers, who currently share pole position with their opponents but are top the standings with a slightly better goal difference.
This encounter at Leafy Lane has the potential to be the game of the day, but only if both sides are at full strength.
Two defeats on the trot has seen Richard Allen’s Pig & Whistle United A side drop into the bottom half of the table and a meeting with a Pack Horse Rangers who handed North Star B their first win of the season last week is likely to provide a much-needed win as they look to get their promotion challenge back on track.
You would have to fear for Bremhill View Boys when they visit PSC Galaxy as all the signs suggest it will be another case of the away day blues for Gary Marshall’s Bremhill side.
Galaxy were given a tough test by Christian Malford last weekend but things should be easier this week and Pete Huntley’s side should have few problems stretching their unbeaten run to 26 games with what should be another convincing win.
