Bedworth United v Loughborough Dynamo

The Greenbacks make the short trip to Junction 23 of the M1 to face Loughborough Dynamo.  In the reverse fixture at The OVAL earlier in the season Bedworth ran out 2-1 winners thanks to goals from Elliott Parrott and Luke Keen.  With just 2 points separating the sides in the league table and the form book over the last 6 games has the same difference.  Last time out same as ourselves Loughborough drew 2-2 after going 2 goals in front away to Daventry Town and before that had a resounding 5-0 victory against Shepshed Dynamo. Loughboroughs home form has been a mixed bag winning 5 drawing 2 Losing 4 giving them 17 points from a possible 33 at the ADT stadium.

The Greenbacks maintained their 8 game unbeaten run last Saturday with a 2-2 draw against Cambridge City in a far from vintage performance thanks to a first half penalty that was converted by Ryan Nesbitt and a 30 yard special from Liam Lockett. with 4 wins and 4 draws in the current run Bedworth have picked up 16 points from a possible 24 having not tasted defeat since the 13th November when they lost 3-2 away to Daventry Town.  Since then the away form which was the Greenbacks achilles heel earlier in the season has been stabilised and with 2 wins and 2 draws on their last 4 away trips the away form is vastly improved.

On the goalscoring front Curtis Burrows and Courey Grantham both have 9 for Loughborough closely followed by Kevin Da Silva Bastos on 8.  In a twist of fate our own Ryan Nesbitt had scored 6 of Loughborough’s league  goals this season before his transfer to the Greenbacks where he has also scored 6 so far, fingers crossed that Ryan can add to his tally on Saturday against his ex club.
