Cambridge City make the trip to Chesham tomorrow to take on Aylesbury United. After four games against teams in around them in the top six, the Lilywhites take on a side that is currently 19th in the table.
It’s certainly been a changing week for City. After a credible 1-1 draw at home to then leaders Moneyfields last Saturday the Lilywhites lost 2-0 at AFC Rushden and Diamonds on Tuesday night – a result that pushed City down into 5th spot.
Off the pitch, City have lost the services of defender Ian Miller after he was released from the squad, but have gained striker James Hall and defender Jordan Williams who returns on loan from Brackley. Both look set to feature tomorrow.
City take on a United side who like the Lilywhites ground share. The Meadow (home of Chesham United) being their temporary home. Nicknamed the Ducks, they warmed up for the clash with City tomorrow with an encouraging 1-0 win at Chalfont St Peter in midweek, their first victory for six games, and the winning goal came courtesy of striker Tre Mitford five minutes from time. The hosts tomorrow have won twice at home this season against teams around them notably Arlesey and Hanwell Town.
City boss Robbie Nightingale - who this weekend celebrates a year in the managerial hot seat - will be hoping for a positive result from his side as they look to consolidate their 5th position in the table. Apart from the two new recruits, Ollie Snaith is the only one who will not be part of the squad as he has moved to St Ives on loan. Jack Vasey and Lewis Wilson failed pre-match fitness tests on Tuesday, but should be OK to be included in some capacity tomorrow.
For those not making the trip, there will be the usual comprehensive coverage of the game on social media via Facebook and Twitter together with a match report and post-match reaction on the City website after the final whistle.
Kick-off at The Meadow is at 3:00pm.
