Cambridge City return to league action tomorrow after a break of a fortnight as they host North Leigh at Bridge Road.

The scheduled action at Aylesbury last week was postponed due to snow meaning that the last outing for the Lilywhites was the 3-3 draw against Dunstable Town on 26 January.

In that game, left back Seb Simpson did not play due to injury but given the break in games since then he should be fit to return to the City starting line-up tomorrow. Meanwhile, French striker Lucas De La Ruelle looks set to be in the squad. The youngster who signed prior to the Dunstable game came off the bench as a second half substitute and could be an option for boss Robbie Nightingale as his team go for their first home win since 10 November.

North Leigh arrive struggling towards the foot of the table. That said, January was a reasonable month for the Oxfordshire outfit as they recorded two wins at home to Kempston Rovers and Aylesbury respectively. Those two wins form are from the five they have recorded this season, and only one of those has been on the road at Aylesbury United back in November. The reverse fixture was a good day for City as the Lilywhites secured a 4-2 victory.

A bit more about North Leigh

North Leigh is a village in Oxfordshire, and their ground is on the Eynsham Hall estate. They were formed the same year as City – 1908. They have been members of the Southern League since season 2008/09. They currently sit in 19th position on 18 points which is just one point above their Oxfordshire rivals, and basement club Kidlington.

Prediction Panel:

Harvey Dunn:

“It was frustrating not to have a match last week, but the advantage is that the players should be fresh and raring to go on Saturday. North Leigh won’t be easy as they are fighting for the points, and despite us winning there early in the season they gave us a good game. However, I think we will have too much for them tomorrow so I am going for a 2-0 City win”.

Stephen Harper-Scott:

“I think we are finally going to get a much needed home win. North Leigh are scrapping for the points but I can only see City getting the points so I am going for a resounding 3-0 win”.

Match Sponsors:

The match tomorrow is being very kindly sponsored by Tom and Karen Dening who are long standing supporters of City and despite now being based in Nottinghamshire they still journey in to cheer City on most match days. The club is grateful for your sponsorship and hope you both have an enjoyable afternoon.

Kick-off at Bridge Road is at 3:00pm.
