MATCH PREVIEW: Info ahead of Tuesday’s home match vs Didcot Town

Tomorrow (Tuesday) sees Bromsgrove Sporting welcome Didcot Town to the Victoria Ground for the second time this season – this match is, of course, the re-arrangement of the original fixture in December, in which Sporting led 3-1 at half time against ten men before floodlight failure led to the match being abandoned.

The last time we met

Although it wasn’t a completed match, the last time the two teams met was on December 1st, when Sporting were 3-1 up at half time before the aforementioned abandonment. Three goals in six minutes from Richard Gregory, Craig Jones and Jason Cowley gave Sporting a spectacular lead, before Luke Carnell pegged one back for Didcot. The half was capped with Cameron McNeill receiving a straight red for a challenge on Daniel Morris.

Opposition

  • Didcot Town currently lie 5th in the league, amassing 38 points from 21 games (Sporting sit 2nd, 47 points from 22 games).
  • Their home form is better than their away, although their record on the road isn’t that bad. Home – P11 W8 D2 L1. Away – P10 W3 D3 L4.
  • Since our first ‘encounter’ on December 1st, Didcot have played nine games – a 2-1 loss away at Coleshill Town on December 8th has been followed by an unbeaten run of eight games (W5 D3).
  • Their last five matches have seen them draw three times and win two. These two wins came most recently; 2-0 at home vs AFC Dunstable and 4-1 away at Aylesbury United.
  • In their last 11 league games, they have only kept one clean sheet (that being the aforementioned win against AFC Dunstable). This does not include the half played against us.

This could prove to be a crucial game for us – therefore, it is vital you turn out for it in BIG numbers. We need YOUR support.
