Tamworth v Peterborough Sports, Tuesday 11 January 2022, KO 7.45
Pitching In Southern League Premier Central
We welcome Peterborough Sports to the CR MOT Centre Community Stadium at the Lamb on Tuesday evening on the back of a much improved performance on Saturday with the excellent 2 - 0 win over Royston Town. The players showed a lot more belief and displayed real commitment to the cause. The goals came from Bilal Yafai and Nyal Bell and we hope to see more of the same against the Turbines!.
We travelled to Peterborough Sports earlier in the season in a first v second clash, in the knowledge that a win would have seen us go top of the league. It wasn’t to be as the hosts won the game 2 - 0 in front of a crowd of 230. We first faced Sports in the 2019 - 20 season following their promotion to the Southern League Premier Central. A crowd of 563 at the Lamb witnessed a 3 - 1 win for Tamworth with the goals coming from Dan Creaney and Jordan Clement (2). The complete playing record between the clubs is P4 W1 D1 L2 F6 A 8.
Sports are currently enjoying a more successful season than the Lambs. For a long time they were the team to beat as they led the pack at the top of the league from the start of season. However, a recent dip in form (1 win in the last 5 games) and the consistency displayed by Banbury has seen them slip to 3rd place and 20 points behind the Puritans, but they do have 3 games in hand.
In terms of team news we wait to see if our 3 covid patients (Lucas Yeomans, Ahmed Obeng and Ryan Beswick) have been given the all clear with negative tests, If Bez is fit and selected to play, then it will be his 100th appearance for the club. One new face on the touchline who fans will have spotted on Saturday is Scott Machin who is working with the management team. Scott has managed with Tom before when they took Kettering to the title. We will have more details about Scott in a feature later in the week.
