Bedworth United v AFC Dunstable Preview

The Greenbacks host Dunstable on Saturday looking to carry on their good run of form. They will also be looking to avenge the heavy defeat that they suffered in the reverse fixture earlier in the season.   Dunstables season so far could be seen as the opposite to ours.  They started the season in fine form only losing 1 game out of their first 7 and were looking certainties to be in the mix come the end of the season.  Since that early form though they have only gained 3 points thrice more one of which was a 1-0 win against St Neots last Saturday courtesy of a Nathan Frater penalty and a 2-0 win at home to Welwyn Garden City on Tuesday night.  Before Saturday the last time they picked up 3 points was back in the middle of November with a 4-3 win against North Leigh.  Dunstable are currently sitting 9th in the league with a record of 9 wins 4 draws and 8 losses and sit 2 points below the Greenbacks on 31points

Bedworth come into this game on their best run of the season with 6 wins in their last 8 outings the push for a place in the playoffs has firmly began.  The Greenbacks go into this game high in confidence and will be looking to extend their unbeaten run to 4 games.  Bedworth will have Cal Templeton available after serving his suspension against Kidlington after his red card at St Neots.  With everyone else in contention as well the competition for places in the starting 11 is hotting up.  Bedworth are coming into this game on the back of a 1 nil victory away to Kidlington on what could only be described as a poor surface for playing football on.  Greenbacks striker  Luke Keen in his previous outing against Dunstable scored the equaliser for his previous club Coleshill in a 1 all draw, fingers crossed he can get on the scoresheet again against them.  For those of you that travelled to Dunstable you might remember that the highlight of the match for Bedworth apart from Alex Trokes late consolation goal was the referee getting a whack on the head with the ball which always raises a cheer. Bedworths record so far in the league is looking a lot healthier than it did at the end of November reading 10 wins 3 draws and 8 losses.  With only 2 points separating the teams Saturdays game could be a humdinger as neither side will want to lose ground in the chase for the playoff places.  So come along bring a friend and cheer the Greenbacks on in their push for promotion.
