Match Preview: West Bridgford (h)

Hinckley AFC will look for a sixth straight home win on Tuesday evening when they welcome West Bridgford to Kirkby Road.

Hinckley have won five on the bounce at home, including both games back at Kirkby Road on the new artificial pitch.

And Courtney Belford is urging fans to keep coming and supporting his team – saying it’s made a real difference seeing the boost in attendances since returning.

His side will welcome back Ben Vallance from suspension after the defender missed the last three matches following his red card at Kimberley.

But Hinckley will be looking to get back to winning ways after dropping points in a 3-3 draw with Graham Street Prims on Saturday in what was a frustrating afternoon for Courtney Belford’s side.

With ten wins in 12, Hinckley are still the form team in the division across that span of games, and will look to move into the top three with a win tomorrow.

Saturday, though, is a reminder of the unpredictable nature of Division One this season – and the fact bottom side Borrowash beat leaders Radford last week proves anyone can beat anyone.

West Bridgford were on the fringes of the play-offs a few weeks ago but a tough run of four defeats in five has seen them slip to 15th in the table.

They haven’t played since Saturday 20th November, a 1-1 draw with St Andrews. Their match at Ingles on Saturday was postponed due to snow.

They have, though, conceded the fewest goals of anyone in the bottom half. Nathan Kelly leads the way at the other end with nine goals in 15 games.

This will be the first ever meeting between the sides.
