Match Preview: Kempston v City

Cambridge City travel to Kempston Rovers tomorrow looking for a much needed win. One point from the last nine available has been frustrating for followers of the Lilywhites and their last outing at Aylesbury on Tuesday night ended in a 3-0 reverse.

In midweek, City were without the services of both Ryan Sharman and Adam Watkins with Josh Oyinsan suspended. Oyinsan remains suspended for the trip to Bedfordshire tomorrow whilst left back Seb Simpson looks set to line up against his former club.

Kempston have picked up just two points from their last four outings but three matches have come against those in the promotion mix with defeats and a draw against Corby, Bromsgrove and Thame United. The Walnuts are currently four places below and four points behind City.


The season started poorly for the hosts tomorrow as they lost their first two games. But they soon picked up and had a healthy run of results during September and October. However, a winless November including a defeat to City in the reverse fixture saw them tumble down the league and since the turn of the year they have only won twice – both on the road - at Coleshill and Barton Rovers respectively.

After a poor result in midweek, where do the panelists this week see the points going tomorrow?

Stephen Harper-Scott: “The matches during the whole campaign so far has been very difficult to predict. However, if we can play like we know we are capable of then we can be good to watch. We need to improve on Tuesday, but I still see this as two evenly matched teams so I am going for a 1-1 draw”.

Harvey Dunn: “It was a terrible result on Tuesday night. No one expected us to go there and concede 3 goals. It won’t be easy tomorrow, and they are just below us in the table but it would be good to get a response. However, with Josh still suspended, I am concerned where the goals are going to come from so like Stephen, I will go with a 1-1 draw”.
