Blizzard Storm vs SPEC FC
I expect there to be plenty more twists and turns in the Division Two promotion race, but on Sunday SPEC FC will look to extend their unbeaten league run to five matches when they make the trip to Blizzard in Hampstead.
The only real thing missing from Laurence Conway’s team is a real fox-in-the-box, a player you can rely on to score 20-odd goals a season, like Hildebrand at Brady, Gilbert at Bilbaum and Hersh at Blancos.
On the flipside, however, they have been scoring goals from all over the park this season and more of the same will be the order of the day.
In last weekend’s draw against the Baums, Dan Amram, Elliott Wallis and James Lesner found the net and Conway will be pleased to know he has two reliable penalty-takers in Ricky Lawrence and Lesner as spot-kicks could play a part in the business end of the season.
Looking ahead to Sunday’s match against Blizzard, Lawrence told JC Sport: “It’s simple. Only a win will do. We know nothing about Blizzard Storm so we have no idea what to expect. With James Segal in the squad though, could this be the week he breaks his competitive duck?”
Blizzard boss Simon Linden will be glad to be back on grass after last week’s 5-0 mauling at Raiders B. His team lies just outside of the relegation zone and must start scrapping as though their lives depend on it in a bid to pick up some points.
Even though they have home advantage, it’s hard to see Blizzard picking up anything against an in-form SPEC team.
