The season may nearly be over but the games are still coming thick and fast for Hinckley AFC, who travel to Chelmsley Town tomorrow (kick off 7-45pm).
Carl Abbott’s side have a quick turnaround after yesterday’s 4-0 win over Nuneaton Griff, and tomorrow will travel to Chelmsley in the hope of avenging the 2-1 defeat in the reverse fixture just over a week ago.
That day, Sam Agar’s opener was overturned by a goal either side of half time for the then relegation threatened visitors, who have since won at Studley to put to bed any fears of an immediate return to Division Two.
Despite being heavily beaten at home by Heath Hayes yesterday they are three points ahead of second bottom Pelsall Villa, who have just one game to play, with a vastly superior goal difference and as a result can look forward to competing in Division One again next year.
Meanwhile, a win for Hinckley would secure second place in the league and would represent their highest finish in their three years of existence.
Saturday’s win over Nuneaton Griff ensured they kept their four point cushion over third place and three more points on the 3G pitch at Pack Meadow would secure a second place finish.
AFC’s record on 3G pitches is good and they have already won a game at Pack Meadow this season with the League Cup win over Coleshill. They have also beaten Paget Rangers on an artificial surface this season.
Chelmsley share Coleshill Town’s Pack Meadow ground, which has a 3G pitch, on Packington Lane, Coleshill, B46 3JQ.
