Cambridge City will look to continue their good run of form as they make the trip to North Leigh tomorrow.

The Oxfordshire side are currently one off the bottom of the league table, having lost their last 4 league games including an 8-1 reverse at home to Corby Town. They exited the FA Trophy in midweek when they lost a Preliminary Round replay 5-1 at home to AFC Totton.

City make the trip full of confidence as they look to continue their unbeaten run to six games in all competitions. Competition for places is increasing with Ryan Towner scheduled to come back into contention after serving a 3 match ban following his sending off against Welwyn Garden City last month.

Josh Oyinsan looks set to lead the attacking options as he looks to continue his impressive form of late that has seen him net 5 times in the last 2 games.

What do we know about…..North Leigh FC??

Like City, the club was formed in 1908. Until the 1990’s they spent much of their time in the Witney & District League before making the switch to the Hellenic League. The switch was a huge success and gained promotion to the Premier Division in 1992-93. They won the Premier Division title twice but were deprived promotion to the Southern League due to a ground grading technicality. However, that got resolved and by the time they next finished in the promotion spots they successfully claimed a place in the Southern League in 2007/08. They switched to the current division during the recent closed season. They are nicknamed the Millers, play at Eynsham Park and their leading scorer this year is Henry Landers who has scored 3 goals to date.

The prediction panel is in upbeat mood ahead of the trip to North Leigh:

Harvey Dunn:

“It was a great win at Peterborough Sports last week and I felt we dominated for large parts of the game. Although North Leigh have only won 2 games this season in the league, and sit 1 off the bottom it could be difficult for us. However, we are in great form at the moment and if we can be both professional and ruthless I see nothing more than a comfortable City win. So I am going for 4-1 to the Lilywhites”.

Steve Warne:

I was extremely impressed with the performance last week. Confidence is high and North Leigh are a young team by all accounts. Goals are flowing for us, so as long as we don’t take them lightly and continue to play like we have, then I am going for a comfortable 4-1 win”

Elsewhere in the League tomorrow…

Leaders Bromsgrove have a tough looking game as they travel to sixth placed Bedford Town. The remainder of the top six sees Peterborough Sports travel to Aylesbury whilst Corby Town visit Dunstable and Barton entertain AFC Dunstable.

At the bottom, Kidlington have a tough match at Welwyn while Sutton Coldfield will be looking to move away from the danger zone as they entertain Berkhamsted.
