Bedworth United v Cambridge City

The Greenbacks play hosts to Cambridge City on Saturday looking to keep their current undefeated run going.  Bedworth picked up their first 3 away points of the season back in October when the 2 teams met at The Glassworld Stadium where Cambridge are currently sharing with Histon until their new stadium is finished.  It was a 1 nil victory courtesy of a Liam Lockett goal in the final minute after he had missed a penalty earlier in the game. Cambridge played the last 20 minutes of the game with ten men after Max Ryan was sent off. Cambridge currently sit 11th in the Northern Premier Midland Division table on 28 points, 6 points behind Bedworth with a record of 8 wins 4 draws and 10 losses from their 22 games played.  Recent form sees the visitors with 3 wins and 3 losses from their last 6 games with the most recent being a 2-1 away victory against bottom of the table Soham Rangers with goals in the first and last minute of the game.  Cambridge’s away form has been slightly better than their home so far this season with 5 of their 8 wins coming on their travels.

Bedworth are on a 7 game unbeaten run which has seen them pick up 4 wins and 3 draws which has lifted them to 8th place in the league and now looking to close that gap that has formed between the top 7 and the rest of the division.  With the gap now down to 7 points and a lot of points still left to play for The Greenbacks on current form will be definitely be looking up rather than down. A win and draw over the Christmas period against teams in that top 5 has proved to be good results with the teams above all still having to play each other again and having to play the majority of them ourselves the points are there and up for grabs to propel us into those coveted top 5 places come May.

Cambridge have relied heavily on the goals of Ryan Sharman and Mikey Davis who have contributed 13 of Cambridge’s 32 goals this season. Bedworth have shared the goals round this season with 9 players in Green contributing league goals to the 31 they have scored with Ryan Nesbitt on 6 and both Rich Blythe and Elliott Parrott not far behind on 5 with both Eesa Sawyers and Liam Lockett on 3.
