Catford & Bromley Macc v Loughton Orient
Dan Curtis looks set to tinker with his squad that impressed against Faithfold C last weekend.
Josh Hambling and Deano Silver registered stunning strikes and I sincerely hope they have bought some lottery tickets this week – strike while the irons is hot lads ;)
Jamie Crawford’s late winner was due rewards for an excellent second 45 minutes, in a game where David Blitz was rewarded for an excellent performance with a place in JC Team of the Week. Jaimie Sinclair wasn’t behind either, in a game where keeper Marc Jacobs was solid and produced one of the best penalty saves you could ever wish to see, even if it was a tad unorthodox, and Dan Howard looked threatening on the right flank.
Ahead of Sunday’s trip to the leaders, Curtis told JC Sport: “We have no fewer than nine players missing this Sunday through injury, suspension and family engagements. It gives me a good opportunity to use my squad and for others to stake a claim.
“I have also been busy in the transfer market this week adding Andy Herman, James Law and Josh Jacobs in time for the weekend.
“We will play to win as always and it's important we build on last weeks result to kick on up the table.”
Catford have won six out of eight and really looked the part this season. Lester Jacobs’ troops were able to put their feet up last weekend and they are ready to go again.
Captain marvel Adam Luria told JC Sport: “There's another selection headache for Lester this week as we've already had 16 players declare themselves fit for Sunday.
“Joel Isaacs and Yonni Bord return after missing the last three games and new(ish) signing Anthony Isaacs will also be pushing for a start.
“We know that LO will be looking for revenge from the first day of the season and that they got a good win last week. It'll be a physical game and it'll no doubt be a close run contest but we'll give it our best shot.
“Of course, this is all reliant on Martin being able to sort out a replacement ref as the original choice has been called into action in a county cup match. Otherwise it could well be an unwanted week off.
This should be a cracker!
