FC Team B vs Blizzard Storm
Brook Road, Borehamwood, Hertfordshire
I believe mid-table rivals FC Team B and Blizzard are too good to go down, but both clubs need some more points before they can shake off any lingering relegation fears.
At the start of the season, FC Team chairman Mitch Young told me his B team were dark horses to win the division, but much like Blizzard, they have failed to deliver results-wise.
The first meeting between the sides promises to be an intriguing affair. It’s certainly a game Blizzard can win in the eyes of manager Simon Linden.
“I want a big performance and the start of a good run of form for my team,” a determined Linden told JC Sport.
“We have to go on a run and we’re more than capable of it. However, FC Team have had some great results this year, beating teams at the top, so this will be tough.”
Having beaten Glenthorne and Neasden already this season, FC Team have shown they can mix it with the best, but they have struggled to keep their standards high against the sides around them.
The bottom line is that neither team has covered itself in glory thus far but I can see both sets of fans going happy after an entertaining draw.
JC team news: Blizzard Storm’s Michael Woolfe returns to the fold after two months out, but Zak Presky misses out. Fans favourite Andrey Grayson is hoping to return while Dan Simons has a late fitness test. Dean Shaw also returns to Blizzard squad.
