Los Blancos vs FC Team B
Los Blancos will be aiming to finish the weekend in the top two as they prepare to take on FC Team B at their west Hendon home.
Player-manager Adam Hersh is without a couple of regulars as Blancos look to complete a league double over a side they beat 5-4 on the second weekend of the season. Hersh (2), Joel Kutner, Sami Birnbaum and Ben Annis were the goal men for Blancos that day.
West Hendon has become something of a fortress for the whites this season. Other than the defeat against leaders Brady B, they boast a 100 per cent record and will fancy themselves to claim what would be their ninth win of the campaign.
Looking ahead to the game, Hersh told JC Sport: “Our biggest hope is to finally play a game. As much as we like a Sunday morning lie-in, we’re all getting a little too fat so playing a game is a must.
FC Team B have picked up some decent results this season, but they are not safe yet. I expect them to do more than enough to keep their heads above water, but they could struggle on Sunday.
Last Sunday’s defeat at Catford was a real setback and manager Ben Simon and co will be keen to put in an improved performance.
But when all is said and done, I think Blancos will have too much on the day.
JC team news: Blancos have a few absentees, including Adam Waters and Aryeh Marks but Hersh believes his squad “is still strong squad for Sunday”.
