Saturday saw both The Rooks and The Robin’s games postponed due to the weather, meaning that Corinthian Casuals took their opportunity to go back to second in the league with their win at Shoreham. However, there’s no denying that this game promised to be one of the most eagerly awaited matches of the season.
The Robins have been in excellent form since our game in early December and have won eight and drawn two of their last ten games. Their last runout saw them beat South Park 3-2 thanks to goals from Omar Koroma, Tommy Bradford and new signing Christie Pattison. Their away form has seen them win eleven, draw three and lose three on the road this season. They did lose promising young striker Mickel Miller to Hamilton Academical at Christmas although they are never short of goal-scoring options with Tommy Bradford, Raheem Stirling-Parker and Jordan Cheadle in the side. They do tend to concede goals though, letting in 46 in the league so far, the highest number conceded in the top six.
Lewes have won twelve and drawn four of our seventeen home games and will come into the game with some confidence of performances against the top six this season, so far only suffering two defeats in the seven games played, although one of those was the 3-2 defeat to the Robins back in December.
Darren Freeman knows that games like these will eventually shape our season:-
“We’re into the business end of the season now and I’d like to bring in a new player to freshen things up and help the lads push for the remainder of the season. You may have noticed the teams around us have been strengthening their squads over the past couple of weeks, and I feel we could do with one more to give us a little bit of sparkle. Don’t get me wrong, the lads have been superb this season, but a new face could add that little bit of pep we need to get us over the line. You’ll see some 12th Man Fund promotions over the next couple of weeks, so if you can help us drive a little more money into the pot, it would be much appreciated.”
