Bedworth United v St Neots Preview

Bedworth welcome St Neots to The OVAL on Saturday after the long journey to Spalding last week.

St Neots currently sit in the danger zone of the relegation playoff places having won only twice all season with those victories coming against Hinckley and Gresley.  Their last 3 games saw them lose at home to Boldmere and Dereham and an away draw against Harborough.  St Neots have scored 13 only 1 less than ourselves but its been at the other end where they have struggled letting in 32 which on average equates to 2.46 goals conceded per game.  Their last clean sheet was in their win against Hinckley at the back end of August. The current form guide sees the Saints in 19th position with only winless Yaxley below them.

Bedworth go into this game on the back of the hard fought 2-2 draw against Spalding where until the last minute it looked as if they were going to be the first team to take all 3 points off The Tulips at home this season,  but a last minute equaliser snatched a draw for the home side.  Bedworth’s performances of late have been good except the blip against Sporting Khalsa.  The Greenbacks will be looking to put on a show against St Neots and move into the top half of the table for the first time this season.  With a run of games coming up on paper that the Greenbacks should win this game could be the start of a nice little run that could lift us into playoff contention before Christmas.

Jamie Lenton today said “I was pleased with the performance against Spalding and it was a shame that we let it slip in the final minute as getting all 3 points there would have been quiet a scalp with the home record they have.  It will be good to have Stu (Storer) back with us in the dugout for this game and I hope the lads can show him the attitude and performance levels that they showed last week.  I don’t particularly pay attention to league tables until later in the season as it takes up until now for most teams to cement their squads so there are always some freak results, but the way it is panning out our next few games on paper are all winnable.  It would be nice to head into Christmas and be within touching distance of the playoff places, but we have to ensure we don’t look to far ahead and take our eye off the challenge in front of us”
