THE AMBERS ARE ON THE ROAD TO ESSEX
The Ambers will be looking to build on last weekend’s success as Craig Edward’s side make the trip to Brightlingsea Regent this weekend.
Cheshunt’s run of seven consecutive defeats came to an end after a superb performance earned a 3-0 victory over Merstham on Saturday, with the Ambers moving up to 17th in the process.
Much of Cheshunt’s success has come at home this season, with just one victory compared to six defeats coming in the seven league games away from this season.
On the injury front, Ashley Nzala, Fabion Simms, Shane Cojocarel and Bobby Mills remain sidelined through injury, whilst Joe Re serves the third and final game of his suspension.
Amadou Kassarate returns to the squad after missing last week’s victory over Merstham, whilst Craig Edwards has made two additions to his squad. Goalkeeper Ben Dudzinski joins from Sutton United, whilst Sierra Leone international midfielder Khalifa Jabbie also joins.
Cheshunt Manager Craig Edwards gave his thoughts ahead of the trip to Brightlingsea, as he said: “They (Brightlingsea) gave us a tough game down here in the FA Cup. We won it 1-0, but it was a tough game. I’d like to think we’re better now; I don’t know where they’re at.
“It’s the old cliché there’s no easy games, and there’s not, particularly if you don’t go into it in the right frame of mind. It’s a difficult place to go Brightlingsea, but we’ll go there full of confidence and full of optimism.”
Brightlingsea have endured a difficult season to date, having picked up just nine points from their 16 games, and having won just one out of nine home games.
The R’s have been out of action since Monday 18th November, when they suffered a 2-0 defeat to Carshalton Athletic, and they have now gone 10 league games without a win, their last success coming at the end of August.
Brightlingsea have no apparent injury concerns, however defender Jake Gould will miss out through suspension.
Saturday’s game takes place at the Taydal Stadium, postcode CO7 0PL. Kick-off is 3pm, and admission prices are £11 adults, £7 concessions, £4 12-18 years and £1 U11s. COYAmbers.
