A TRIP TO THE SEASIDE FOR THE AMBERS
The Ambers face the tough task of travelling to league leaders Worthing this weekend.
When the sides met at Theobalds Lane back in October it was the visitors who emerged victorious, Cheshunt succumbing to a narrow 2-1 defeat after taking the lead.
Craig Edwards’ side have shown a resurgence in form since the turn of the year having lost just one of five matches in 2020, a 3-2 defeat to Enfield Town last weekend.
The Ambers bounced back from that defeat on Tuesday evening to defeat East Thurrock United on penalties in the 2nd knockout stage of the Velocity Trophy, after the game had finished 2-2 after 90 minutes.
Amadou Kassarate and Shane Cojocarel remain sidelined through injury, whilst Fabion Simms and Ashley Nzala are progressing well in their recovery from long-term lay-offs.
Goalkeeper Max Huxter has been brought in and made his debut in the victory over East Thurrock, whilst midfielder Taylor Miles has also re-joined the club on loan from St Albans City.
Table-toppers Worthing are 14 games unbeaten in all competitions, their last defeat coming to AFC Sudbury (4-1) in the FA Trophy on Saturday 9th November.
That run includes three consecutive wins, heading into this weekend, over Horsham (3-2), Merstham (6-1) and Brightlingsea Regent (3-0).
That run means the Mackerel Men sit five points clear at the top of the division having collected 54 points from 25 matches, and are the leading attacking side in the league having scored 58 goals.
Worthing have no apparent injury concerns.
Saturday’s match takes place at Woodside Road, postcode BN14 7HQ. Kick-off is 3pm, and admission prices are £10 adults, £6 concessions, £3 12-16 years, £1 6-12 years and free for U6s. Come on you Ambers.Back +
