Match Preview – Hitchin Town v The Ives

St Ives Town continue their league action on Monday night as they make the short trip to Hitchin Town.

The Ives will be keen to return to winning ways after two straight league defeats.  The latest coming courtesy of a 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Redditch United on Saturday.

Whilst St Ives were losing at home to Redditch, Hitchin lost 3-0 at Stourbridge, a result that saw the Canaries drop to 14th in the table.  Their season to date has seen them win three, drawn two, and lose three of their opening eight games.  The Stourbridge game was their third successivve 3-0 defeat coming on the back of a loss to Bedford and a reverse at Heybridge Swifts in the FA Cup.

The Ives make the trip with both Greg Kaziboni and Michael Richens returning from injury, and could be given more game time after both coming off the bench against Redditch on Saturday.  Tyrone Baker will miss out as he serves his second match of suspension following his sending off against Leiston almost a fortnight ago.

There is a full midweek programme in the Southern League Premier Division Central this week, and victory for the Ives would see them possibly climb to fourth for at least one day – depending on results elsewhere.
