L'Equipe vs Loughton Orient
Page Street, Mill Hill
L’Equipe have put themselves in a strong position to finish in fourth spot. David Prager’s men have been the model of consistency in recent weeks and this is certainly another game they can win.
They have been effective and efficient over the last four matches and have not conceded a goal in more than 270 minutes of open play.
Josh Lewis was the star man when the teams last met, bagging a brace in a hard fought 2-1 success. L’Equipe came away from the match disappointed the margin of victory was not more emphatic following the heroics of Loughton keeper Marc Jacobs.
Like L’Equipe, the goals have not flowed freely for Loughton this season, but they managed their third win of the season last time out, with Barry Green and David Blitz the marksmen in the 2-1 win over Hendon C.
Loughton boss Dan Curtis was delighted with the effort levels in that performance, although he was honest enough to admit it wasn’t “the greatest performance”.
Looking ahead to the game, Loughton boss Dan Curtis told JC Sport: “We expect a tight game this weekend and will be looking to press on after taking the three points in our last game against Hendon.
“We see a good opportunity in the second half of the season to climb the league and finish strongly.
“I have almost a full squad to pick from. Competition for places is high and that helps bring the best out in us.”
