Week 20 Previews

Premier Division

This weekends fixtures sees Deers Leap taking on 2nd from bottom club North Swindon WMC.

Deers Leap are the obvious favourites in this match up, but North Swindon have a lot to prove and will no doubt be throwing all they’ve got at the current top spot team.

However with Tawny Owl hot on their heels, Deers will certainly be a force to be reckoned with. Tawny Owl will be playing against Sportz Central this weekend in what promises to be a great game of football.

Tawny have not conceded a single match this season and are in great form, but with a fair few victories under their belts, Sportz will be more than up for the fight.

With their last league fixture back in January against Swindon Centurians, FC Dorcan will be looking to blow away the cobwebs as they take them in the reverse fuxture this weekend. Dorcan will be hoping to replicate their last meeting where they managed a convincing 5-1 victory.

3rd placed Bassett Bulldogs are up against Village Inn in a bid to remain in league title contention. After a very disappointing cup defeat last weekend, they will certainly bring their “A” game to ensure the cup loss isn’t replicated in the league.

The final fixture sees struggling side Spectrum up against an inconsistent Swindon Spitfires side. Neither club have been able to sustain any good form and are both in need of the win this weekend.

With Spitfires having not won a game since early in the new year and Spectrum only managed one win back in November, both sides will be desperate to pick up a confidence boosting victory.


Division One

This weekends biggest clash in Division One is Moredon FC against Wroughton Reserves. After making it through to the final of the George Thomas/Don Rogers Cup last weekend, Wroughton will fancy their chances in this match up. However with the clubs sitting in 6th and 7th position and only 3 points between them, it’s shaping up to be a very close game.

Lower Stratton take on Marlborough Reserves in a bid to close the gap on 3rd place Sport4Pinehurst. Stratton have only lost one game so far this year so they have every chance of moving up the league table.

Bottom club Swindon AFC, who have struggled to find any form this season are matched up against Core Construction. This will not be a walk in the park for Construction however, with Swindon picking up points from their previous two matches and themselves having not won a match since early January.

After their defeat in the cup last weekend, Chiseldon FC will be looking to turn things around as they go up against title chasing Sport4Pinehurst. Pinehurst are likely to be feeling pretty confident going into Saturday’s game after thrashing New Town All Stars and Core Construction in their past two matches.


Swindon Advertiser Cup

Old Town United who are currently in great form line up against Haydon Wick in this re-arranged semi final tie.

With weather conditions being better this weekend, United will be looking to secure their place in the final to keep their league and cup double hopes alive.

Haydon Wick are not to be discounted however, as they are having a pretty good run of their own, having not lost a game since back in January.
