Bedworth United v Kidlington 2020-21 Review

Bedworth travel into Oxfordshire again looking for a win to put another 3 points on the board.  This time the opposition will be a Kidlington side that are currently sitting 9th in the early league standings having played 4 games 2 less than the Greenbacks.  Kidlington have been on a good run of form themselves winning their last 3 outings.  A three nil win against Didcot in the league was followed up with a 3-1 win against Biggleswade also in the league before a 2-1 victory last Saturday against Didcot on the Buildbase FA Trophy.  Before that they played Western football league side Bristol Manor Farm in the Emirates FA Cup drawing after 90 minutes but then missing out 6-5 in a penalty shoot out.  Bedworth did the double over Kidlington last time round beating them 2-0 at The OVAL and  The Greenbacks ran out 1-0 winners courtesy of a second half Luke Keen goal at Kidlingtons Yarnton road pitch.  Kidlington were set to play Berkhamsted midweek but had to call the game off due to a waterlogged pitch.

Bedworth go into this game looking to right the wrongs of last weeks 4-1 defeat to St Neots in the Buildbase FA Trophy.  Stu Storer will be without suspended Reece Blackmore after his straight red last Saturday.  Bedworth started the season well but with now no cups to worry about the team will be 100% concentrating on the league now.  Speaking to Stu Storer today he said “I expect Kidlington to be well organised and looking to maintain their good start to the season,  last week was disappointing but I believe until the sending off the game was finely balanced but playing 10 against 11 is always difficult and even though we got ourselves back in the game it was always going to be an uphill struggle a man down against a strong St Neots side.  Looking forward to this weekends game it gives us a perfect opportunity to bounce back from the disappointment of last week.  We are united as a squad and like I have said previously there is nothing more dangerous than a wounded animal and this time it us that are wounded.  We look forward to getting back into league action and now without the distraction of cup games we can hopefully kick on and keep ourselves in the hunt come May next year.”
