Town are at home this weekend with a difficult game against Carshalton. The Robins are the form team at the moment with five wins from their last six outings. Their only dropped points coming through a late winner from Corinthian Casuals. It's proving good timing, as Carshalton have slipped quietly into the play off zone almost unnoticed.
Town come into the game as League Cup Winners. Their victory over Hornchurch on Wednesday night probably more comfortable than the scoreline suggests. They created plenty of chances and could well have had more. A particular mention goes to Billy Bricknell on the incredible achievement of a third successive cup win!
Town will need to bring that improvement into today's game if they are to keep alive their slim hopes of taking part in the play offs. It is still mathematically possible, but they can't afford to drop any more points. Of the teams Town can still catch, Tonbridge have probably the most difficult run in, facing the league leaders today, and Carshalton still to come. But two points from their last four games would put them out of Town's reach. And while Town have chance to slow Carshalton down today, the Robins form looks good enough to carry them over the line
This should be a good game and a chance for supporters to renew acquaintances with former Towner and fans favourite, Harry Ottaway in the Robins front line.
More importantly it is also a chance to show the team appreciation for a great win in mid week to take the Velocity Cup home to Donkey Lane.
League Cup Winners!
