This Friday 19th April 2019, we welcome VCD Athletic to Homelands Stadium in The Bostik League South East Division, 3pm kick off.

This is a huge game which could confirm our place in the playoffs this season, the team stopping us currently is our upcoming opposition!

With just 3 games to go, there’s 9 points to play for. We currently sit in 4th place on 61 points, whilst VCD our outside the playoffs in 6th place on 56 points. So 5 points separating the two sides, this means Tommy Warrilow and his side MUST win this Good Friday if we want to guarantee playoffs before our away trip to Hastings on Monday.

A draw between the two sides would mean we would be separated still by 5 points, with 6 points left to play for. A win for VCD Athletic on Friday would mean we would be just 2 points ahead of them with two games remaining.

Elsewhere this weekend, all other sides play on Saturday, and the games to keep an eye on will be Horsham (2nd) vs Faversham Town, Ramsgate vs Haywards Heath (5th), and Sittingbourne vs Hastings United (3rd).

Our opponents on Friday are currently top of the form guide, with 5 wins and 1 loss in their last 6 games, whilst we are currently 6th in the recent match table, with 3 wins, 1 draw and 2 loses in our last 6.

VCD are on a 4 game winning streak, keeping 2 clean sheets, scoring 12 goals and conceding 5 in those 4 matches. Last time out they beat East Grinstead Town 5-4 at home. VCD are yet to draw away from home in the league this season, winning 10 and losing 5 of their 15 games played on their travels.

A huge game, come down to Homelands and cheers the lads on to victory, come on you Nuts and Bolts!!!
