Match Preview: Brocton (h)

Hinckley AFC will aim to end the 2018-19 season on a high when Brocton visit the Welfare Ground tomorrow afternoon, kick off 3pm.

The curtain comes down on AFC’s fifth season with a home game against the Badgers, in manager John Ramshaw’s final game as first team manager.

Tomorrow, the play a Brocton side who are likely to finish just inside the bottom half in 11th – but could climb above Paget Rangers into 10th if they win at the Welfare Ground and Paget lose at NKF Burbage.

Hinckley, after Monday’s cruel late defeat at Lichfield, can only finish as high as 15th but they will take heart from their display in their last game and hope to take a good memory of their final game into the summer break.

If the reverse fixture is anything to go by, goals could be in good supply: AFC led three times back in November at Silkmore Lane but were pegged back each time by the resilient hosts, the third and final time a controversial stoppage time equaliser.

The Badgers have four players in double figures for goals, with their top scorer Regan Smith on 13.

But it has been at the other end where they have found most of their problems – conceding ten more goals than Hinckley despite having 14 more points.

Afterwards, it’s the presentation night in Gadsby’s and the players, and Ramshaw, will hope to go into it with a win.
