Match Preview: Ives v Long Eaton United

St Ives Town will be looking to make it six league wins out of six on Saturday when they host Long Eaton United at the Quattro-Tech Westwood Road.

League wins against Royston, Coalville, Halesowen, Berkhamsted and Barwell have lifted the Ives to 14th place in the table and will be favourites to claim the points tomorrow against a Long Eaton side who are bottom of the league, having won just once all season.


The Ives go into the game after a superb second half display against Barwell on Monday night that saw them claim a 3-1 victory. Brandon Njoku scored twice with Greg Kaziboni getting the other as the Ives came from a goal down to make it five league victories on the bounce. For that game, manager Ricky Marheineke only had 13 players available meaning just two subs, and hopes are high that things will return to some kind of normality on Saturday. Jordan Williams is definitely back after being unavailable at the weekend whilst Dan Barton hopes to return after missing out on Monday with illness.


Long Eaton arrive bottom of the table and their only win of the season came against Berkhamsted in September with the other point coming in a 2-2 draw at Kettering. The Derbyshire based outfit will be desperately looking for a morale boosting victory to kick-start a campaign which has been difficult since their promotion from the Northern Premier League East Division via the play-offs at the end of last season.


We welcome Cambridge Sensotec and Dynascan to the game who will be sponsoring the match and matchball. We hope they have a fantastic afternoon and thank them for their ongoing support.
