Redbridge Jewish Care B vs AC Mill Hill
Forest Road, Fairlop, Essex

Rhythm is a dancer. It’s also a very important feature in football and it’s something Redbridge have right now, but Mill Hill don’t.
Jon Jacobs’ men were described as the “best team in the division” by Blizzard boss Simon Linden and they will be looking to make a big impression on Joe Levy and co at Fairlop this weekend.
They didn’t have things all their own way against Blizzard last Sunday. After falling behind they had to roll up their sleeves and show the spirit and determination of champions. They passed that particular test with flying colours, with keeper Brad Grant and new signing Craig Sandford playing leading roles.
Jacobs is keeping things simple for Sunday. He told JC Sport: “There will be no changes to the squad. We just hope we get a game on with the weather as it has been.”
Mill Hill have games against the teams below them although I expect them to get numbers behind the ball as a point would be a decent result. Inconsistency has held them back this season but they have players who can ask questions of RJC and could make things awkward, as long as they close down the space well and defend for their lives.
I caught up with Joe Levy before the game and he had this to say. “After the postponement last week we are eagerly anticipating our first game of 2014.
“Having not played for a few weeks, we will be a bit rusty but hope to get back into our rhythm quickly.”
Sam Rank was RJC’s matchwinner in the corresponding fixture and I can see him playing a starring role once more.
