Temple Fortune A vs NW Neasden A
Camrose Avenue, Edgware
020 8238 5920
There’s rarely a dull moment where Temple Fortune are concerned. We’ve seen the best and, dare I say, worst of them this season and they will be keen to get their season back on track against Neasden on Sunday.
Lee Fegan’s men went eight games unbeaten but as they say, all good things come to an end and Camden Park had just too much for them last Sunday.
With both teams locked on nine points from nine games played, victory on Sunday would go a long way to easing relegation fears and I believe this will lead to an open and entertaining affair.
Fortune will need no reminding of what happened the first time the teams met this season. Lee Cash, I’m sure you’ve heard of him, fired a hat-trick in a 5-0 demolition, with Zack White completing the rout. Fortune will be relieved to hear that both players have moved on since then and Neasden have struggled to fill the void in terms of a real goal-scoring threat.
Michael Field and David Fox were the marksmen in last weekend’s 3-2 defeat against Woodford and manager Dan Hodes hopes both are able to show their quality in the final third again.
The battle between Fortune’s Shai Davidi and Adam Klein will be key, but I think Fortune will have the legs on an ageing NWN team.
