Weather permitting, Cambridge City hope to return to home league action tomorrow when they host Hayes & Yeading at Westwood Road.
Home action has been something of a rarity in recent weeks, with many Lilywhites fans having their own mid-season break with the last action at Westwood Road being on Boxing Day. Almost two months on from that and the City faithful will be hoping that after a couple of days of dry weather that the Westwood Road pitch is fit to play.
If the match gets the green light, then City will be eager to build on their 2-1 victory at Egham last week. A result that moved City up to 7th in the table. The visitors tomorrow sit 3 places above City in 4th place, and like the hosts are looking for an instant return to the Premier Division following their relegation last year.
The visitors arrive at Westwood Road in good form having won both of their league games in February against Bedford and Moneyfields respectively. Those games have seen them score 9 goals – a feat they managed in one game against struggling Arlesey last month. They have lost 5 times on the road this season at Ashford, Kempston, Northwood, Barton and Marlow.
City go into the game looking to move into the top six, and could go third if they win and results elsewhere go in their favour. Chalfont St Peter – the team directly above the Lilywhites – travel to leaders AFC Rushden & Diamonds. Beaconsfield host fleet, Hartley Wintney entertain Arlesey and AFC Dunstable travel to Moneyfields.
If you are not going to the game then a reminder that you can keep up to date with all the action via Facebook and Twitter with a full match report and analysis available on the club website after the final whistle.
Kick-off at Westwood Road is at 3:00pm.
