Preview: Swindon Supermarine vs Evesham Utd

Manager Paul West is looking forward to his Evesham United side pitting their wits against high-flying Swindon Supermarine tomorrow (3pm), writes Steve Carley of the Worcester News.

The Robins are unbeaten in four Evo-Stik Southern League Division One South and West matches following their first win of 2013, a 3-1 victory at Winchester City last Saturday.

However, that record will be put to the test at a Swindon side aiming to cement their play-off place.

Evesham, who are 13th in the table, also face promotion hopefuls Poole Town and Hungerford Town over the next week.

West said: “It’s a good opportunity to see the players against the better sides and Swindon will be a good test for us.  The players have worked hard for little reward in terms of points but the performances have been decent.  We all want to win but have to make sure we are difficult to beat. Our Achilles’ heel has been not scoring in good passages of play which has cost us.  I am delighted for the players that they got their just rewards against Winchester.” 

Evesham’s only injury concern is captain Matt Sysum, who hurt his back last weekend, but the centre-half should be fit to make the trip to Supermarine.
