A TOUGH TRIP TO SUSSEX.
Cheshunt make the trip to Lewes on Saturday in a huge game between two sides fighting to avoid relegation.
The Ambers will also be hoping to prevent Lewes doing the double over them after the Rooks left Theobalds Lane with a 2-0 win in November.
Craig Edwards’ side are now on a run of five league games without a victory after drawing with Bowers & Pitsea (1-1), and losing to Enfield Town (3-2), Worthing (2-0), Leatherhead (3-1) and Hornchurch (3-0).
That run leaves Cheshunt 20th in the Isthmian Premier Division and in the relegation zone, although a win over Lewes could see the Ambers move up to 18th.
On the injury front, Fabion Simms, Ashley Nzala and Shane Cojocarel are joined on the side-lines by Max Huxter who has a hamstring problem, whilst Ola Williams is also a doubt. Mark Hughes will serve the third game of his four-match suspension.
Lewes have also fallen into a slump in recent times having lost their last six games in all competitions, most recently losing 1-0 to Corinthian-Casuals last weekend.
That run has seen the Sussex side slip down to 17th in the division on 25 points, although they do have games in hand on the side’s around them.
Cheshunt will also be buoyed by Lewes’ poor home form, who have the second-worst record in the division having won just once, and collected just four points, in 11 matches at the Dripping Pan this season.
Lewes have no apparent injury concerns, however new signing Tony Halsey made his debut in their defeat to Casuals.
Saturday’s game takes place at the Dripping Pan, postcode BN7 2XA. Kick-off is 3pm, and admission prices are £12 adults, £6 concessions and free for U16s. COYAmbers.
