AFC Telford v Ives: Match Preview

St Ives Town are currently the form team of the division, but their sequence of six consecutive victories will be put to the test on Saturday as they make the trip to AFC Telford United.

The Ives go into the game on the back of league victories against Royston, Coalville, Halesowen, Berkhamsted, Barwell and Long Eaton.  It was Long Eaton who were their latest conquest as they defeated the bottom club 5-0 last Saturday at the Quattro-Tech Westwood Road.  During that game, Jonny Edwards scored twice and his strike partner, Brandon Njoku was also among the goals as the Ives cruised to victory.

Introducing Telford

The match-up against Telford on Saturday will provide a much harder test.  The Bucks have lost twice at home in the league all season and sit ninth in the table, two places and five points above the Ives.  The hosts haven’t played since 18 November which was a 1-0 win at Berkhamsted.  They were knocked out of the FA Trophy at Quorn in early October, but since then their form has improved and go into the game unbeaten in the last six with the only points dropped being against Leamington when they had to settle for a 1-1 draw.

The reverse fixture

The two teams met earlier this season at the Quattro-Tech Westwood Road.  Telford returned home with maximum points courtesy of a 3-2 victory.  The Ives looked as though they were going to secure victory when Michael Richens put his side 2-1 up, but an equaliser and an injury time winner meant that Telford returned home with the points.
