PREVIEW | Eccleshill United (H)

We look ahead to our first midweek game of the season as the Bulls welcome Eccleshill United to the Forest Town Arena.

AFC will be looking to bounce back from a weekend defeat at Staveley to return to winning ways in the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division.

Kick-off is at 7:45pm.


Last Time Out

Ross Duggan was the source of goals again but a poor first half allowed hosts Staveley to knock three past Hugo Warhurst.

Duggan scored his second on the other side of the half-time break to lead a second-half fight-back, but a clinical Trojans side caught their visitors on the break to restore their two-goal cushion and take all three points.

The Opposition

The Bulls haven't come across Eccleshill for several seasons now, but skipper Phil Buxton said that they will still be just as tough opponents as any side in the league.

The Eagles remain winless in the NCEL Premier Division after a 1-1 draw with Staveley on the opening day before a heavy 4-1 defeat to Hemsworth last weekend.

Tuesday's visitors achieved a solid 10th place finish in the Premier Division last season after winning the Division One play-offs the season before.


Team News

The injury list has done no favours for Matt Chatfield over the weekend, with several players looking doubtful.

Tom Slone, Ben Potter and Brett Lucas all are doubts for the midweek clash, whilst Jordan Annable, Ross Duggan and Cameron Hough are carrying slight knocks.
