Cheshunt vs Folkestone Invicta

The Ambers are back at Theobalds Lane for the second of our five consecutive home games on Tuesday evening. Folkestone sit just one place above Cheshunt in the table, another win for the Ambers here would be huge after the win against Concord on Saturday.

The Hosts – Cheshunt

The Ambers come into this game in a positive mindset after a huge 2-1 2in over Concord Rangers at the weekend. Early goals from Nathaniel Orafu and Nnamdi Nwachuku put Cheshunt two to the good. An early second half goal gave the Essex side hope, but we continued to be the only side really threatening the goal in the second half. Some great saves from West Ham loanee Mason Terry meant they managed to keep the score at 2-1. It was a brilliant performance and a very convincing win.

Brian Okonkwo joined Cheshunt on a work experience loan until the end of the season. The brother of current Wrexham goalkeeper Arthur has spent time at Hitchin Town and Leatherhead previously. He will spend the week training with Arsenal before joining up with the Ambers squad on a matchday.

The Visitors – Folkestone Invicta

The Seasiders currently sit 17th place in the Isthmian Premier table. One place and nine points above the Ambers. Despite being in 17th, they are a huge 14 points above the relegation zone with Margate on 25.

Invicta were without a win in eight fixtures before earning two massive home victories in a row. The first being a 3-2 victory over fellow relegation threatened side Kingstonian. The most recent win was on Saturday as they defeated Canvey Island by a goal to nil thanks to a goal from Thomas Derry, scoring his sixth of the campaign. The club’s top scorer this season is David Smith who has scored 11 goals in 36 games so far.

Head-to-Head – Cheshunt vs Folkestone Invicta

The two teams have faced each other a total of five times recently, both sides have won two games and there has been one draw. Cheshunt have scored nine goals and Folkestone seven in those five fixtures.

The most recent meeting between these two teams came earlier the season. Back in October, Folkestone came out 2-1 winners at the Aicaline Stadium. Solomon Baugh gave the Ambers the lead after 25 minutes in Kent, but they were unable to hold out for the points. A late first half strike from Luke Holness levelled it up going into the break. Then an early second half strike from Ibrahim Olutade earned the hosts all three points.
