  • Can Rangers continue superb league form? Preview 20/12/14

    Rangers Target Seventh Straight League Win

    Rangers ESFL team make the trip to basement side Northiam 75 this week in the hope of securing their seventh consecutive league win which would see them maintain their place at the summit of the division two table for the Christmas period. The form of the two sides this season couldn’t be more different with rangers going from strength to strength while Northiam are still looking for their first league win of the season.

    Back to back home league games in September saw Northiam lose to Wittersham (6-2) and fellow strugglers Pebsham Sibex in a close encounter which saw Sibex win 3-2. Northiam’s first away game of the season saw them secure their first league point with a 2-2 draw at Catsfield but a return to Northiam Rec the following week saw title challengers Old Hastonians claim a 4-2 victory. Northiam then scraped past division six side Orington 4-3 in the Robertsbridge Junior Cup which no doubt gave them some much needed confidence but a week later, they crashed out of the Wisden Sports Challenge Cup when Wittersham came out 3-1 winners after extra time.

    Northiam conceded 21 goals over the next four league games with defeats to The JC Tackleway (7-0), Crowhurst (6-1), Herstmonceux (5-1) and a close defeat at Wittersham (3-1) which looks like this weeks opposition may well be starting to turn the corner. This suspicion was possibly supported a week later when Northiam pulled off a result which suited rangers down to the ground when they earned a point against Old Hastonians with a 4-4 draw. Their last game two weeks ago saw them narrowly lose an ELEVEN goal thriller against Pebsham Sibex in the Robertsbridge Junior Cup which has left only league survival as Northiam’s primary focus.

    Northiam’s top scorer is James Fielding who has five league goals to his name while their league form, which sees them sit bottom of the division two table, reads: P9 W0 D2 L7 F15 A40 Pts2

    Regardless of the fortunes of the two clubs this season, this game needs to be approached with the upmost of caution, as a team with nothing to lose are generally a team that will be play with no fear which which will always pose a danger to any side.

    Last week saw the strength and depth of the squad placed under the microscope with six players missing, four of those players returning to the squad this week. But a superb team performance against Catsfield led to some amazing team goals and rangers will be hoping to recreate some more of last weeks sparkle, especially if the game is reversed to the sports park 3G.

    If the game is switched all support is of course very welcome, 2pm kick off.

    Weekly preview – 6/12/14

    Our ESFL team once again find themselves in cup action this week as they entertain Mid Sussex Division 3 side Nutley in the Sussex County FA Junior Cup at the sports park in a 1.30pm kick off.

    Rangers come into the game off the back of a club record breaking eleven straight wins, troche which cannot be matched by any other team in the entire East Sussex league and have also secured two cup semi final places in the process.

    Nutley come into the game high on confidence after securing a point against Mid Sussex Division 3 leaders AFC Haywards Heath (2-2) last weekend. Their 5 results previous saw them share 12 goals with Plumpton Athletic where Nutley came away with an 8-4 victory while a week later they secured a 1-1 home draw against West Hoathly. They then dispatched Grasshoppers Old Boys of the East Sussex League 3-1 in the previos round on the Sussex County FA Junior Cup while a week later they had to settle for another home draw in the league (2-2) when Horsted Keynes were the visitors. Two weeks ago Nutley secured a 5-2 win at MaresfieldVillage. Their league form reads: P10 W5 D3 L2 F28 A15 Pts18 and they boast the top scorer in the division with Chris Collinson having scored 14 goals in all competitions this season.

    This will be a very tough game but a good defensive performance should see rangers through, look but nothing can be taken for granted.

    Our MSFL make the lengthy trip to DCK Copthorne II this week in the league where there will be a pitch inspection late Friday afternoon.

    DCK currently sit top of division 6 and their league form reads: P9 W7 D1 L1 F39 A11 Pts22 and they also boast the top scorer in the division with David Arnold having scoring 17 times in just 11 games. Last week Copthorne’s game was called off, order presumably because the Copthorne pitch was deemed unfit for use. Their last six results have been impressive but not unblemished with league wins over Ashurst Wood II (8-1), Rotherfield (3-2) and Copthorne IV (6-1 and 5-1). The only blot on the DCK book was a 1-0 away defeat to Framfield and Blackboys United II, while sandwiched in-between these league results DCK secured a comfortable 5-1 victory over Hartfield in the league cup.

    This will be a massive test for rangers but victory here would see the red and blacks climb to just 2 points behind this weeks hosts.

    Come on fella’s, you can do it!
