DIVISION TWO PREVIEW: Spotlight falls on West End
2:00pm Friday 5th October 2012 in News
SOMERFORD will be looking to bounce back from last week's defeat at the hands of Goatacre CC FC as they aim to reignite their challenge to become Division Two winners this season.
It may be early days but with Chippenham West End next up, Spike Chandler’s men know that they can’t afford to lose for a second successive week.
West End will be a good match for their guests and it wouldn’t come as a surprise it they were to get maximum points from what should be a keenly fought game.
Goatacre CC have scored seven and have not conceded any in their opening two league matches and they will be hoping for another clean sheet and maximum points when they host Southwick Wanderers, who have lost both of their opening games.
Wanderers will want to avoid another case of the away day blues but for that to happen they will have to conjure up something a little bit special.
An out-of-sorts Kings Arms (All Cannings) outfit are scheduled to host pole sitters Staverton who have a decent record over Jim Wilson’s men in previous seasons.
Staverton, who are chasing a hat-trick of titles, have won three out of four meetings and they will be favourites to claim win number four.
But they will also be wary of the threat from the home team who no doubt will rise to the occasion as they look to inflict Aaron Latchem’s visitors with their first defeat of the season.
White Horse have looked every inch a promotion-chasing side in their last two games and, if Clive Black’s side can continue in their recent rich vein of form, then they should have few problems in making it three wins on the bounce when they host Miller Sports.
Sports, despite winning just one in four, are much improved on last season and will make their hosts work hard for any points they get.
Bottom of the table Wren FC are unlikely to get anything from their game with Sutton Benger.
The hosts have managed just one win in 20 league games and all the signs point to another defeat for Carl Murray’s strugglers.
But having taken a point from their guests in the corresponding fixture last term they will have hopes of getting an unlikely point.
