Weather permitting, Cambridge City make the trip to Aylesbury tomorrow as they continue their Southern League Division 1 Central campaign.

The match could be in doubt as Aylesbury tweeted a photo this morning of the pitch covered in snow, so if you are thinking of making the trip look out for further details on any possible pitch inspections.

If the match does go ahead, then the Lilywhites will go into the contest unbeaten in their last three outings. City picked up a point last week at home to Dunstable Town. Prior to that, a win at Yaxley and a draw at home to Barton Rovers has seen a return of five points from the last nine available.

Left back Seb Simpson is hopeful of being fit after missing the game last week with injury. Meanwhile Josh Oyinsan will once again be leading the attacking options. The striker was on the scoresheet again last week following on from his hat-trick at Yaxley the week before.

Aylesbury go into the game on the back of five straight defeats. A couple of draws prior to that run starting means their actual last victory was against Yaxley on 1st December. They have though beaten City this year when they returned home with a 3-2 victory in November. That was only one of three wins in the league this season the other coming against Dunstable Town in September. They are two places off the bottom of the league, and have already confirmed relegation this year as they cannot fulfil a ground grading requirement on the size of their dressing rooms.

There's a bit of confidence on the panel this week, and hopes are high that it can be four games unbeaten.

Harvey Dunn:

“It was two points dropped against Dunstable last week. We should have finished them off with the chances we had but it was good to come back and rescue a point at the end. Tomorrow is a game we need to win and if we can be professional and take our chances then we should get the win. I’m confident, but not of a big victory so I will go 2-1 to City”.

Katie Perring:

“Following on from Saturday I believe we are getting better with each game, and we were just unlucky not to get maximum points last week. However, tomorrow I reckon we can get a win and I predict the same score as Harvey 2-1 to the Lilywhites.

Stephen Harper-Scott:

“I also think this is a win for City. But we need to cut out the errors and if we can put in an assured performance similar to what we did at Yaxley the other week I can see only one winner. I am going for a 3-1 City win”.
