Eastbourne Borough preview

By Matt Robinson

"Jolly Boys outing"

This Saturday The Crusaders make the journey to Priory Lane , Eastbourne to face 16th place Eastbourne Borough.

Boro, have had a troubled start to 2018 having lost 5 of their 6 cup and league matches, four of those on their artifical turf home ground. Losing 2-1 away to Concord Rangers last week bringing and end to January. Boro did themelve host a friendly on Tuesday night agains East Grinstead Town and triumped 5-2 which may give them some confidence going into Saturday's match vs The Crusaders.

Hungerford lost 1-0 at home in October to The Boro after a late Matt Drage penalty secured all three points, but the game was nothing short of controversial when Diak John was sent off after 5 mintues when a shot struck his hand and the referee Robert Massey-Ellis awarded a penalty and sent John off much to the amazement of everyone at Bulpit Lane. Lloyd Dawes saw his resulting spot kick saved by then loanee goalkeeper Lewis Ward who has since transferred on loan to Aldershot Town from Reading FC.

The Crusaders however, are in much better form this year having won 4 out of their last 7 games, drawing one against Bognor Regis Town last week on a difficult surface.

Their are some injury concerns for the management but they will assess these on tonight at training.
