With the weather set fair, Cambridge City look set to take the field tomorrow as they make the trip to fellow play-off contenders AFC Dunstable. Itís another massive game for the Lilywhites in their bid to be in the promotion mix come the end of the season.
Itís hard to think that the season is scheduled to finish in a fortnight with City still having another 6 games to play after tomorrow. With games on Monday, Wednesday, Saturday, Monday, Wednesday and Saturday to finish the season it gives you some idea of the hectic schedule that City will have to endure over the next 2 weeks.
The Lilywhites make the short trip to Bedfordshire on a six match unbeaten run, and will be boosted by the 4-1 victory over another play-off hopeful, Hartley Wintney last weekend.
City boss Robbie Nightingale will hope to have a full squad to pick from but will know that his side will face a tough test against a team who have only lost 3 times at home all season. Like City, they have seen a couple of games postponed of late with their most recent game ending in a 0-0 draw at Egham last Saturday.
The hosts tomorrow sit one place above City and still have to play both AFC Rushden & Diamonds and new leaders, Beaconsfield between now and the end of the season. A lot of their goals come from Jermaine Hall who has found the net on 23 occasions this season, and was on the scoresheet when City suffered a 2-0 defeat in the reverse fixture at Westwood Road in November.
Elsewhere in the race for promotion tomorrow, Beaconsfield travel to Moneyfields. AFC Rushden & Diamonds host Aylesbury United, Hartley Wintney entertain Uxbridge whilst Hayes & Yeading welcome Egham.
If you are not making the short trip, then you can keep up to date with all the developments on social media via Facebook and Twitter with a report and post-reaction available on the official website on Saturday evening.
Kick-off at Creasey Park is at 3:00pm.
