Lions fan Joe Priestley previews Saturday’s trip to Leamington as we hunt for back-to-back away league wins.
On The Road: Leamington FC
Saturday 30th November – 3pm kick-off
New Windmill Ground, Leamington Spa
The Lions are back on the road this Saturday and find another team also looking to right some very recent wrongs in Leamington as their opponents. Both teams need a boost, and both teams need three points to avoid the ever widening black hole at the bottom of the table and keep the pressure off themselves. Will The Lions be able to see them off?
Guiseley have exited the Buildbase FA Trophy at the first time of asking, fallen into shaky form around the festive period after an arguably impressive spell and are concerned about their ability to take their chances. This is almost parallel to last season, with the difference being arguably that the team has a stronger mentality than they did 12 months prior. The Lions face no new injury concerns and the managerial duo should have their whole squad ready for selection.
Leamington’s top goal scorer last year Colby Bishop departed for Accrington before the season began, but unlike AFC Telford United who faced similar problems they’ve found a new talisman in Josh March who scored a hat trick recently against Bradford (Park Avenue). Connor Taylor scored last time out from just inside the box and Leamington appear to play rigid and tight football.
