Evesham Utd Travel to League Leaders Tomorrow

Evesham United have targeted a second away win in four days when they take on league leaders North Leigh tomorrow (3pm) writes Steve Carley of the Worcester News.

The Robins recorded their first success of the season on the road last Tuesday with a 3-1 Southern League Division One South and West triumph at basement boys Didcot Town.

Although North Leigh are at the opposite end of the table, manager Shaun Cunnington feels Evesham can head to Eynsham Hall Park with confidence after United secured a 2-2 draw against second-placed Swindon Supermarine earlier this month.

Cunnington said: “Performance-wise we have done OK but haven’t been getting the results. It was disappointing that we didn’t win against Swindon Supermarine but confidence should be fine so we will be looking to go to North Leigh and get a result. Conditions were difficult at Didcot on the heavy pitch but the lads gave a really good account of themselves and we could have won by a much higher margin. It was pleasing.”

Midfielders Marcus Jackson and Mitch Botfield are set to return after missing the Didcot match through work commitments. But central defender Daniel Gregson continues to be unavailable after going on trial at Scottish Championship side Dundee.  Centre-half Marc Richards has left the club.
