Slimbridge Away Tomorrow

Evesham United will travel to Slimbridge for a Southern League game tomorrow.

The Robins are coming off a 1-1 draw with Yate Town last weekend, and haven’t registered a win in their last seven games in all competitions.

They will be without captain Linden Dovey who is recovering from a hamstring injury, while Adam Mann, Bradley Gray and Saturday’s goalscorer Carl Brown are all struggling with injuries.

Lewis Binns trained for the first time this week since suffering a shoulder injury, and could be in contention to play.

Manager Paul Collicutt is expecting a tough game this weekend, and says his side have to take their chances if they want to start winning games again.

“The biggest thing is if you don’t score goals, you don’t win games of football,” said Collicutt.

“We have to start taking the chances that come our way. We haven’t won now for five games, and the last win we had was a very good 5-1 win at top of the table Bristol Manor Farm when we went there.

“Our home form hasn’t been as good as our away form, and I don’t know what it is. People have asked me the question and I just think we play with a little bit more freedom away from home than we do at home.

“It is a difficult one, and we have a tough game away to Slimbridge on Saturday. They are doing really well this season and it was only a couple of weeks ago they drew with Taunton who were top.

“We go there knowing it will be a difficult game. Last season we beat them and they beat us, so we know it’s not going to be an easy game. They will work very hard for one another and make life very difficult for us.”
