Cheshunt head back down to the South Coast this weekend as Craig Edwards’ side travel to the MKM Arena to face Bognor Regis Town. Cheshunt return to the South Coast looking to put a disappointing 2-0 defeat to Whitehawk on Tuesday evening behind them.
The Hosts – Bognor Regis Town
The Rocks come into this game in good form despite defeat in the quarter final of the Sussex Senior Cup on Tuesday. They travelled to Littlehampton town where they were defeated 6-1 by the Isthmian South East Division side.
Robbie Blake’s side were unbeaten in seven games in all competitions before defeat in the cup, this includes six wins in the Isthmian Premier Division. The teams last defeat came away at Lewes on New Year’s Day. The Rocks have been very impressive defensively in recent matches, keeping four clean sheets in their last four matches including wins over Haringey Borough and Billericay Town in their last two.
One of the most impressive players for Saturday’s hosts this season has been Dan Gifford. The 19-year-old striker arrived from Farnborough in October. This is his second spell at the club after spending part of the 21/22 season on loan at the Rocks from Fratton Park. He has scored 13 goals in just 24 appearances in the Isthmian Premier this term.
The Visitors – Cheshunt
The Ambers come into this game looking to put their form right. The Hertfordshire side have won just one game in their last ten fixtures. On Tuesday evening, Cheshunt were defeated 2-0 away at Whitehawk, after having what appeared to be a legitimate goal chalked off for a very dubious offside decision, and some extraordinary first half time wasting as the home side sought to reduce the impact of playing uphill in a howling rainstorm. The Hawks took the lead with 20 minutes to go through a wind assisted free kick from 35 yards by Joey Taylor. The hosts made it 2-0 with 12 minutes to go through Rob O’Toole being on the end of a well worked break away. This was a disappointing result for the Ambers after impressing in the previous game in the narrow defeat away at league leaders Hornchurch.
Head-to-Head – Bognor Regis Town vs Cheshunt
The Rocks have faced the Ambers five times in recent history. Cheshunt come out well on top, they have not been defeated by Bognor Regis. The most recent fixture between the two sides was the reverse fixture this season in September. Cheshunt were comfortable 3-1 winners thanks to a brilliant hattrick from Nnamdi Nwachuku to earn a much needed three points. Cheshunt will be hoping for a similar performance in West Sussex on Saturday.
