CHIPPENHAM SUNDAY LEAGUE DIVISION THREE PREVIEW: Fortune bid to ignite promotion challenge
4:00pm Friday 11th January 2013 in News
DUE to cup commitments and the inclement weather, Fortune Inn have managed just to fit in just one league match since the end of October, but Budge Hylands' side shouldn’t be written out of the Division Three title race just yet.
Fortune visit PSC Galaxy and it is a must-win game for Hylands' side if they are to keep their hopes of a top two finish alive.
But Galaxy won both games between the teams last term and they are favourites to complete a hat-trick of wins over the visitors to Northbrook.
Bremhill View Boys have already suffered a 6-1 defeat away at Pack Horse Rangers this season, and unfortunately for Garry Marshall’s Bremhill side, who currently languish in the drop zone, it is hard to see anything than another victory for the visitors to Beversbrook as the home team have yet to win a league game this campaign.
Cavalier, who find themselves bottom of the pile will not be looking forward to their meeting with leaders Corsham Park Rangers.
Cavalier, who have not won any of their seven league outings to date, have already suffered an 8-1 loss to Tim Spear’s side and, unless Rangers have an off day, the outcome should be another comfortable victory for the pole sitters.
With the only remaining 100 per cent record left in the division, FC Buscots will put that on the line when they welcome Pig & Whistle United A to Nurstead Road.
The smart money will be on the Buscots extending their winning run to 11 matches especially as their guests have not won in eight.
But although United are far from their best they could upset the odds and get a point from a game they are expected to lose.
North Star B will hope to bounce back from their 11-1 defeat to FC Buscots when they welcome Christian Malford to Beversbrook.
Malford left it late to mug Pig & Whistle of a much needed win but they should have things easier against their hosts who they beat 5-4 a month ago and who after back-to-back losses look to be heading back towards the danger zone.
