Faithfold C vs L'EQUIPE
Page Street, Mill Hill, London
020 7681 4520
It’s the battle of the hotshots that many have been talking about on Sunday as Schnitzelman takes on Flash. I want a nice, clean fight, with no rabbit punches, lads!
Richard Fogelman marched to the top of the leaderboard with a fabulous four-goal blast against Boca last Sunday, including two goal-of-the-week contenders. “Feed the Foge and he will score” was the chant from the terraces after each deadly finish.
Ahead of the trip to the Lodge, L’Equipe joint-manager Josh Lewis told JC Sport: “After a hard fought victory on Sunday against Boca, we’re keen to start another good run of form and close the gap on Catford - with a game in hand we could be within two points of Catford and level with Norstar so it’s very close at the top.
“This weekend we nearly have a full squad to pick from after having a few injuries and absentees over the past few weeks. We’re well aware of Faithfold and what they are capable of, with both of their strikers regularly on target. But with Fogelman recently overtaking Gordon in the race for the Golden Boot, I’m sure he will want to increase that advantage like he did last time we played them.
“The back four will have to be switched on and if we can start quickly I’m convinced that we can come away with the victory at Chase Lodge.”
Faithfold marksman Dan Gordon hopes to put last weekend’s match against Loughton behind him and he will be a man on a mission to lift the Superhoops up the table and put a dent in L’Equipe’s title hopes.
David Garson knows his troops are capable of much better. He told JC Sport: “We will have a few extra faces to freshen it up which is good and Dan Gordon is chomping at the bit to get back on terms with Fogelman.”
Goals looks guaranteed in what is expected to be an open and entertaining affair, but I think that come Sunday lunchtime, it will be advantage Fogelman.
JC team news: Faithfold’s injury list continues to grow, with James Stanton joining Dave Sherman, Nic Viola and six others on the treatment table. Danny Caro is unavailable (much to the disappointment of Schitzelman!). Dan Lowen and Nick Roman return for Faithfold, while Elliot Bloom is pushing for a start.
L’Equipe welcome back captain Mark Singer, Jules Bohm and Richard ‘Scotty’ Alexander, which will be a big boost to the team.
