UJIA vs Hendon Utd Sports Club B
Page Street, Mill Hill, London

Hendon saw their promotion hopes go up in smoke against a Mitch Hahn inspired Woodford Wanderers last weekend.
The Reds simply had no answer to the brilliance of the JC Player of the Week. But the good news for Hendon fans is that UJIA don’t possess a player in Hahn’s class. What they do have is Assi Avital and Matty Radstone, players capable of making things difficult for them as the U’s go in search of what a few weeks ago seemed like an unlikely double.
Ahead of the game, I caught up with Hornets joint-manager Motty Korman. He told JC Sport: “We took a battering last week and no-one wants to get out of bed for that on a Sunday morning, so hopefully we can regain our pride this week.
“With promotion now out of our reach we can just enjoy our football and start building again for next season. “e will be back fighting after last week.
“Olly Garbacz has impressed since joining in January and Ben Mandell could make his debut ... both young boys with a lot of potential.
“Another youngster, Yehuda Korman, stood out last week in the 45 minutes he played and we are hoping we can persuade him to play for us over the A's this week.”
Avital (2) and Radstone got the Ben Radstone revolution off the ground in the last meeting between the teams but when you consider they have yet to win at home, they may well find things a lot tougher second time around.
JC team news: Hendon will be missing Danny Steel, Gav Noe, Div Vogel, but the new boys have the opportunity to make a claim this week.
