Match Preview: City v Berkhamsted

There’s home action for Cambridge City tomorrow as they take on play-off chasing Berkhamsted at Bridge Road.

City will be keen to return to winning ways as they look to improve a run of performances that has seen them win just 3 times from the last 18 league matches. That run of results ironically started against the visitors tomorrow when the reverse fixture back in November ended in a 1-0 defeat for the Lilywhites.

Tomorrow, City will still be without the services of striker Josh Oyinsan who sits out the last of his four match ban. Whilst Ollie Thorne remains a doubt after missing the second half of the 1-1 draw at Kempston last weekend with injury.

On the plus side, new signing Max Booth looks set to feature after signing for City on Thursday evening. City boss Robbie Nightingale will also be hoping that midfielder Josh Simpson will be fit again for selection after missing the match at Kempston.

Berkhamsted arrive also in the midst of a difficult run of results. Whist they still have play-off aspirations, the Comrades have only recorded 2 wins from their last 10 league outings. The last two matches have seen 2-1 defeats at home to Bedford last Saturday and away to Yaxley the week before. They are currently 8th in the table having won 12 times this season.

A bit more about Berkhamsted FC…

The club was only formed in 2009 after Berkhamsted Town folded. The new club in Berkhamsted joined Division Two of the South Midlands League and back to back promotions saw them rapidly move to the Premier Division. Last season, they finished as runners-up paving the way to them making their debut in the Southern League.

Katie Perring: “With us back at home this week, I am hopeful that we will get a result. If we can, hopefully that will see us enter the final few weeks of the season on a high. I expect it to be tough, and a bit of a battle but I think we will sneak a 2-1 win”.

Stephen Harper-Scott: “Like Katie, I am going for a 2-1 win. But, a lot will depend on who is fit to play as we have a few injuries at the moment. I would be more comfortable if Ollie Thorne has recovered from injury, but we are certainly due a win and hopefully we will get one”.

Harvey Dunn: “It was a satisfactory point last week. We didn’t create many chances but it was better than nothing. Tomorrow will be difficult as Berkhamsted are fighting for a play-off spot. City really need to win to get some momentum back into the season, but I think it will be a big ask to get a victory – especially with Josh still out so I am going for another 1-1 draw”.

Match and Ball Sponsors

Cambridge City would like to thank Carter Jonas who are sponsoring the match tomorrow. The club would also like to thank City fans Norman and Margaret Thacker for sponsoring the match ball.

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