Match Preview: Rocester (h)

Hinckley AFC could complete a first league double of the season tomorrow when Rocester visit the Welfare Ground, kick off 3pm.

AFC won the reverse fixture back in November after racing into a 3-0 first half lead, and held on despite the home side’s second half comeback.

It means the Romans could become the first side that AFC do the double over this season, if John Ramshaw’s men can get three points on the board on Saturday.

It would be a much-needed three points if it came, after a rotten recent run which has seen five straight home defeats since the 1-1 draw with Nuneaton Griff back in January.

But Rocester could leapfrog AFC in the table if they win at the Welfare Ground, with the Staffordshire outfit currently sitting just a point below Hinckley having played a game more.

They have only lost one of their last five, though, including wins over Heath Hayes and Studley, and competed with runaway leaders Heather St John’s until the final quarter of an hour last weekend.

Jordan Dodd is their leading scorer on 14, and among their impressive results this season was a win at Atherstone before Christmas.
