L'Equipe vs Hendon Utd SC C
Page Street, Mill Hill
L’Equipe and Hendon C have similar records going into what will be their first meeting of the season on Sunday.
David Prager’s men were 15 minutes away from defeat when their match, against Mill Hill, was abandoned last Sunday and they know they will to be on their guard against a Hendon team who go into the game on the back of a big win.
Ben Slukis was the hat-trick hero as Craig Miller’s men destroyed Tottenham Chutspah. That result just goes to show what the Reds are capable of when things click into gear.
But Miller predicts that things will be a lot closer on Sunday. Craig Phillips, our stalwart of a captain, will be playing through the pain of ankle injury he picked up last week, but we are missing Alex Elf which is a big blow.
“We have got Ariel Weinstein coming in to replace him and with Sluckis scoring his hat-trick last week he is buoyant of a repeat performance.
As a further blow, David Elf may not pass his 11th hour fitness test to play on Sunday, but his cousin Adam Jacobs will add any steel that we miss from the brothers.
“L’Equipe will be a tough, tough game - they are doing really well of recent to have held AC Mill Hill to 2-1 with 15 minutes left means they are competing with the big guns in the league even with a slow start to the campaign.
“Hendon United SC would like to send their best to Joe Levy and we wish him a speedy recovery.”
So with key men missing for the Hustlers, I’m tipping L’Equipe to keep their good run going.
