Cambridge City travel to fellow strugglers Kings Langley tomorrow for a massive game in their battle to escape relegation.
The match needs no further introduction. City, in 21st place on 31 points. Kings Langley, 2 places above them on 34 points having played a game more.
Going on current form, you would probably make City favourites going into the contest. The Lilywhites have put together a timely run which has seen them go unbeaten in their last four outings. This has featured a win over Redditch and a point each against Kings Lynn and Leamington.
The home side meanwhile have had it tough of late, and have picked up just two points from their last six league outings. Worryingly for Kings Langley they have lost against two other teams in the relegation zone in that six game sequence namely St Neots and Cinderford.
City travel to Hertfordshire with an injury concern over Ryan Sharman. Salim Relizani definitely misses the trip as he is in the midst of a 5 match suspension. Apart from that, manager Robbie Nightingale has a full strength side to choose from. Part of the City squad will be midfielder Lee Stevenson who joined in midweek after being released by Kings Lynn.
Nightingale has made his squad fully aware of the importance tomorrow. Speaking to the Cambridge News the City boss said “All games are important games, whether you’re playing Kings Langley or Leamington. You’ve got to turn up to every game with the same desire, work ethic, hunger and passion. If you don’t, you won’t win anything”.
The match tomorrow is part one of a double header of games against fellow relegation threatened sides. The second being the trip to basement club Cinderford on Tuesday night.
City will be boosted by a decent following of away fans tomorrow who will be hoping their team can deliver and claim a crucial victory.
Elsewhere tomorrow in the battle to beat the drop Cinderford travel to Chesham. There’s another massive game as Hayes and Yeading meet Cirencester, whilst St Neots travel to Leamington. Finally, Dorchester, fresh from their surprise victory at Hitchin in midweek, go to Redditch.
