L'Equipe vs Loughton Orient
Page Street, Mill Hill
Josh Lewis was L’Equipe’s hero the last time these two teams met, bagging a brace in a 2-1 victory.
L’Equipe boss David Prager told me after the game in December the margin of victory should have been more emphatic, but for some poor finishing and inspired goalkeeping from Marc Jacobs.
But Loughton Orient have raised their game since then, beating a red-hot AC Mill Hill team last time out, and manager Dan Curtis believes the momentum is with them.
The experience of David Blitz has given the team another dimension
“It’s a massive game Sunday and one which we must take three points from,” Curtis told JC Sport. “We are on our strongest run of the season after winning four out of the last five. We want to keep that run going to the end of the season and put ourselves in with a chance of a top five finish.
JC team news: Loughton’s Adam Conway picked up an injury in training and will be out for two weeks. Other that that Curtis has a full squad to select from.
