The Greenbacks host Welwyn Garden city tomorrow night in what could be their last game before another Covid enforced lockdown. Welwyn currently sit 10th in the league having played 2 games less than United having won 3 drew 1 and lost 1. Welwyns last game was on Saturday in the FA trophy drawing with 1-1 against Horsham from the Isthmian League Premier Division and eventually running out 5-3 winners on penalties. Their last league game was a 1 -1 draw against league strugglers Kempston Rovers. Prior to that they had picked up all 3 points against St Neots, Thame and Biggleswade, Coming from 2 goals down away against St Neots to win 3-2, beating Thame away 1-0 and at home putting 3 past Biggleswade. Last season the teams played out an entertaining 1-1 draw at Welwyn and her at The OVAL The Greenbacks ran out 2 nil winners.
Stuart Storer was glad of the rest on Saturday to allow some players the extra time to recover from Injury. The lay off has allowed Mitch Piggon, Phil Bilson and Dan Crane time to come back into the squad, add to that new signing Andy Parsons it gives Stu Storer some more options than he did against Kidlington last time out. Bedworth come into the game on the back of that battling performance which saw the Greenbacks draw 1-1 at Kidlington. Speaking to Stu Storer earlier he said “Its good to get players back from injury and if this does prove to be our last game for a month I am looking at the players to send us into the enforced break with 3 points and cement our place in the playoff positions, We know that Welwyn will turn up with a strong physical side like last season but I believe that we now have the right mentality to deal with anything they throw at us. It wont be easy for them to travel to The OVAL on a Tuesday night and with the players I have at my disposal we will be looking to ensure that we take all 3 points.”
