Robbie Nightingale will send his Cambridge City team out with the message of ‘more of the same’ as they look to continue where they left from last week. A comfortable 2-0 win over Coleshill ensured that City returned to winning ways after a 3 match losing run during the first part of September.

City do though face a difficult match at league newcomers Welwyn who have started the season strong only losing 2 league games so far both against early season pacesetters in the shape of Peterborough Sports and Bromsgrove Sporting.

Nightingale has a selection dilemma ahead of the match tomorrow as influential centre back Jordan Gent is available again after missing last Saturday through suspension. Gui Mailancol stepped up to the plate and didn’t look out of place in the absence of Gent. Elsewhere, there are doubts over the fitness of Adam Capel who was injured last Saturday but Jack Wilkinson could be fit to return after missing last Saturday and most of the FA Cup defeat the week before with a groin injury.

What do we know about……Welwyn Garden City FC

Welwyn Garden City FC were formed in 1921 and are nicknamed ‘The Citizens’. They are managed by Adam Fisher, and find themselves in the Southern League after they won the Premier Division of the Spartan South Midlands League last season.

The hosts tomorrow currently sit in 5th position having won 4 and lost 2 of their opening 6 games. In the squad for Welwyn looks set to be Kaan Fehmi. He will need no introduction to City fans after having a spell with the Lilywhites a couple of seasons ago.

For fans going to the game, the full ground details are:

The BP Mitchell Stadium
Herns Lane

Kick-off is at 3:00pm.

Prediction Panel

Two of our pundits are confident of a City win tomorrow whilst the other is leaning towards defeat. Here’s what the prediction panel had to say ahead of the trip to Hertfordshire.

Harvey Dunn

It was a great win last week, and so important to get back to winning ways. Tomorrow will be another tough game against a new club that have started the season well. But I am a lot more confident this week, so I am predicting a 2-1 win for City

Steve Warne

Although we bounced back with our best all round display on Saturday, I am quite fearful ahead of tomorrow. I have a feeling we might trip up against a good Welwyn side on their own patch. Much as it pains me to say it, I am going for a 1-0 defeat.

Alan Palmer:

This will be another tough game. But I would start with the same team that won last week unless there are injuries in personnel. I’m confident and if it is a settled side that takes to the pitch I’m going for a City 2-1 win.
