Cambridge City travel to promotion chasing Bromsgrove Sporting tomorrow for what will be their penultimate away trip of the season. City could have a big hand in where the title goes as Peterborough Sports who currently lead the way will be the final destination on the road for City on Easter Monday.
Despite the gap in league placings, City will take heart from the fact that they pushed Bromsgrove all the way in the reverse fixture in December, and arguably came close to getting all three points as the match ended in a 1-1 draw.
The hosts tomorrow are currently in second spot, seven points behind Peterborough having played the same amount of games. ‘The Rouslers’ haven’t lost at home all season, and the only two teams to take points off them have been Welwyn and Barton Rovers who secured a 2-2 draw in the last home game. Bromsgrove will take a check on the fitness of Charlie Dowd. The midfielder is rated as doubtful for the clash.
City head to Worcestershire looking to keep their good form going which sees them undefeated in the last three league matches. The Lilywhites were on course for a comfortable 3-0 win against Kidlington last Saturday only for the match to be abandoned following a serious leg injury to visiting goalkeeper Sam Warrell.
City boss Robbie Nightingale may use the game to bring Ross Paterson back into the starting line-up after not featuring last week whilst Josh Oyinsan will lead the striking options with Adam Watkins looking to put in another effective performance in the centre of midfield.
“This will be a very difficult game for City, but we are in reasonable form right now, and I think the result against them earlier in the season will give us confidence. If the pitch is decent and we pass it well then I reckon we will come away with a 2-2 draw”.
“First, I want to wish the Kidlington goalkeeper all the best with his recovery after what happened at the game last week. Tomorrow is a massive test for us. They are unbeaten at home this season, and a crowd of around 1,000 is expected which will be something the players haven’t played in front of for a long while. But we are in decent form, and put in a good shift against them earlier in the season. I expect us to get something from the game so I am going for a 1-1 draw.”
