Bedworth host Coleshill Town on Monday the 27th December kicking off at 1pm. Coleshill have had a steady start and have been floating around the playoff places all season. Their current form over the last 6 games is a mirror image of our own having won 3 drew 2 and lost 1 with their most recent game a 3-1 win against 3rd from bottom Wisbech Town, previous to that was a 1-1 draw against Daventry, a 4-3 win against Cambridge City, a 0-0 draw with Shepshed Dynamo and a 2 -0 loss to Spalding.
Bedworth will be looking to close that gap between themselves and the pack vying for the playoff places. The Greenbacks are currently 11 points outside the playoff places and will be looking at the next couple of games to springboard them into the mix. The Christmas period could see the Greenbacks propel themselves closer to that playoff group if they can come out with wins against Coleshill on Monday and Chasetown on New Years Day. Bedworth will be buoyed by their recent form having started to pick up points on their travels having gained 7 from the last 9 available away from home.
Coleshill will be coming to The OVAL with 2 ex Greenbacks in their squad in Kai Tonge and ex Greenbacks favourite Daniel Dubidat. Kai Tonge is definitly one to watch for Coleshill with 11 goals to his name this season. Sam Moore has also weighed in with 9 goals so The Greenbacks defence will need to be on top form to keep a clean sheet. Bedworth though have Ryan Nesbitt who since his arrival here at The Oval has bagged 5 in 4 appearance’s and is on his way to firmly becoming a fan favourite in a green shirt. Coleshill’s away form has been one of the best in the league this season pit that against the Greenbacks home form and we could have a humdinger of a match to watch so get yourself down The Oval to finish off your Christmas celebrations.
