Cambridge City go in search of their 3rd win on the bounce when they make the trip to Dunstable Town tomorrow.
The Lilywhites have found form in recent weeks courtesy of wins against Coleshill Town and Welwyn Garden City. However, the win at Welwyn last Saturday came at a cost as they had both Josh Oyinsan and Ryan Towner sent off. Oyinsan serves a one match suspension and will not be available for tomorrow. Meanwhile, Towner was dismissed for violent conduct so will serve a 3 match ban which also starts from tomorrow.
On the plus side, both Jack Wilkinson and Adam Capel are fit and will be in the squad and will battle it out for the left back slot. Ross Paterson is likely to come in for Towner, and Lewis Whitehead will stake a claim for a starting place after impressing when he came on as a substitute last weekend.
Dunstable currently sit in 13th position in the table having been relegated from the Premier Division last season. They won 5-1 at struggling Kidlington last week in a game that saw Arel Amu get a hat-trick. Both him and Saul Williams are the players to look out for tomorrow with the latter scoring twice in their first win of the season – a 3-2 victory over neighbours AFC Dunstable on August Bank Holiday Monday.
What do we know about…….Dunstable Town
Perhaps one of the most colourful eras of football in Dunstable came in the mid-70’s when Barry Fry became manager. During his time in the hot-seat, the likes of George Best and Geoff Astle played for the club. Although Best only played a handful of matches, Astle scored 34 goals which helped them to promotion to the Premier Division of the Southern League. That version of Dunstable folded and despite a new club being formed to take over the previous, that too folded in season 1993-94 which then paved the way for the Dunstable Town as we now know it being formed in 1998. Since then, they have moved up from the South Midlands League all the way to the Premier Division of the Southern League, but were relegated last season after finishing bottom.
After two successive wins, the pundits this week are in relative upbeat mood ahead of the trip to Bedfordshire. Here's what they have to say:
It's been a good couple of weeks and the stability of the side is kicking in now. Despite the suspensions I expect the likes of Paterson and Whitehead to come in and do a good job. I feel much more confident now and we the form so I am going for a 3-1 win.
It was another good win at Welwyn last week, and it was great to get back to back wins and clean sheets. Tomorrow will be tough, but I think we are playing with more confidence now so I am hopeful of making it 3 wins on the bounce. I am going for a 2-1 win.
