Total Wipe Out Today, Its The Big One Next Weekend, Caldecote v Meltis Corinthians
Preview For Saturday 14th February 2009
After last weekends total wipe out of fixtures it is hoped things will be back to normal this weekend where in The Premier Division Supported By Sportsform the top game of the day will come at Harvey Close where current league leaders Caldecote hosts second place Meltis Corinthians, The Sweetboys will travel still unbeaten in the league this season to face a home side they trail in the table by some nine points but whom have played three more games than themselves, meanwhile third place Campton who trail Meltis by just a single point in the standings will however be taking the day off from league action and instead be playing their delayed Brittania Cup Quarter-Final tie at Rectory Road against Bedford Sports Athletic for the right to entertain either Henlow or Caldecote in The Semi-Final..
For fourth place Blunham now on a three game winning run its a trip on the road for what looks like a tough game at Oakley Sports and a defeat for them would see both Renhold United plus Ickwell & Old Warden join them on the same number of points in the league table should they come up with victory's in their scheduled away games, United making the trip to Groveside to face the third from bottom Henlow who are still yet to win a league game on home soil this season whilst Ickwell & Old Warden travel to Jubilee Playing Fields to face second from bottom Wilshamstead whose home record so far this campaign reads played eight won one lost seven including their last five outings.
Other top flight action comes at Horseshoes Close where hosts Dunton will be looking for their third win on the bounce when visited by a Sharnbrook side that has won just two of its nine away encounters this campaign whilst Gold Steet is the venue for the Riseley Sports v AFC Kempston fixture where the hosts after three straight home defeats will seek to return to winning ways against a Town side that last won a game of any kind some nine outings ago.
For Division One table toppers Flitwick Town its a day off from league duty has they make the trip to Cryselco Park to face Royal Oak Kempton in a Centenary Cup Quarter Final tie for the right to travel again to either Elstow Abbey or Marston Social in the Semi-Final.
But for second place Ickwell & Old Warden Reserves who trail them by just four points at the head of the standings the task of closing the gap on them will not be easy when on The Green where they have won just twice this season they receive a visit from in form and sixth place Woburn whose last nine outings have brought about eight wins and just one defeat, elsewhere at Miller Road the teams separated by just goal difference in third and fourth slots meet when hosts Meltis Albion in third spot are visited by Campton Reserves but instead of league points being at stake its a place in the Semi-Final of The Centenary Cup that awaits the winners where they will travel to meet either Woburn or Westoning Recreation Club.
Other action comes at Greenfield Road where Westoning Recreation Club after three straight home defeats will look to put that right against visitors Stevington, while at Hillgrounds, AFC Kempston Town Reserves will be the firm favourites for the three points when they host a Elstow Abbey side that has lost all of its last nine outings.
The final two games in this division seeing Marston Social now on a three game winning run host a Caldecote Reserves side that has won just once on its travels this season whilst bottom of the table Sandy Reserves who have lost all of their six away outings this campaign hit the road to Cutler Hammer for a meeting with Kempston Hammers Sports.
Away from the league action its Quarter-Final day in The Bedfordshire FA Junior Cup, in Hillgrounds, Marsh Leys will be hosts to Luton District & South Beds League side USL Galacticos whilst across town in Jubilee Park, Great Barford host fellow Division Two outfit Marabese Caramics whom they have already beat in league action this campaign while the third tie of the day comes at King George VI Playing Fields where Division Two side Kings AFC host Division Three side Caldecote A.
With these cup ties taking place the Division Two league action is restricted to just five games, league leaders Blunham Reserves who head the table by some ten points in home action at Moggerhanger Playing Fields looking to take their seasons unbeaten league ways to fifteen games but their visitors are Meltis Corinthians Reserves who inflicted their only defeat of the season upon them on the opening weekend of 2009 when they last came calling to Moggerhanger Playing Fields in The Jubilee Cup.
For second place Meppershall Jurassic its a trip into Russell Park to face Blue Chip whose home record of just one win from six outings hardly suggests they will put a dent into The Jurassic Boys promotion hopes while third place Marston Shelton Rovers are also hitting the road to Whiston Crescent to face a Clifton side that last won on home soil some six games ago.
The days other action in this division comes at Mill Lane where hosts Potton Wanderers will be expected to collect the full three points from the visiting bottom of the table Mulberry Bush and in Russell Park where second from the bottom of the table Saffron now on a four game losing home run entertain Lidlington United Sports who travel now unbeaten in their last three league outings one of which was a 1-0 home win over Saffron.
For Division Three League leaders Leighton United its a home game at Stanbridge Road against Westoning Recreation Club Reserves in the Quarter-Final of The Watson Shield against Westoning Recreation Club Reserves for the right to travel and meet either Wilshamstead Reserves or Riseley Sports Reserves in The Semi- Final so for second place Three Tuns Galacticos who trail them by just three points its a chance for them to draw level on points with the league leaders should they come up with the full three points from their home Arlseley Recreation Ground encounter against Riseley Sports Reserves.
Other action comes at Steppingley Road where Flitwick Town Reserves who have lost their last four home outings receive a visit from Dunton Reserves whilst at Hillgrounds, bottom of the table Kempston Athletic will be in search of that elusive first win of the season when Sandy A come calling.
Meanwhile the days final two games come at Shuttleworth College where hosts Meppershall AFC will be expecting to collect the full three points against their visitors Wilshamstead Reserves who are yet to win on the road this season and at Renhold Playing Fields where the home side Renhold Village will start favourites for the three points against a Stewartby Village side who last tasted victory some six outings ago.
