Match Preview: Uttoxeter Town (a)

Hinckley AFC play the first of seven away games in eight in the league when they visit Uttoxeter Town tomorrow.

After a narrow defeat and a last gasp point from their last two, Courtney Belford’s side have had a week to digest that 90th minute leveller against Rocester having had a rare midweek off.

But tomorrow, they’ll hope to build on the momentum of a late equaliser as they face one of their longest away trips of the campaign with the visit to Oldfields.

There, they face a Uttoxeter side going well in the race for promotion with the hosts sitting fifth in Division One.

They have won 15 and drawn one of their 22 games thus far, and could move back into the last of the four promotion spots with a win.

Like Hinckley, they are winless in their last two having lost 2-0 on the road at Lichfield City, and then 7-0 in the Staffordshire Cup at Rushall Olympic on Tuesday.

But they very rarely go three without scoring a goal, with 15-goal Jake Avery their biggest threat going forward.

Hinckley, though, will look to continue their largely good record against the top sides with the game at Oldfields.

Having beaten both Brocton and Lichfield City this campaign and recorded a good away draw at Studley, AFC will be confident of a positive result in Staffordshire.
