Late Preview + Predictions – 9.20am

Very quick preview as I am unsure how many people will actually get to see it as it’s almost preparation time for today’s matches but here goes.

Delph Athletic can secure their place in the semi finals of the Division 2 Cup with a win over Dudley Lions who themselves will be looking for a win to give them a fighting chance of getting there as well. Living Hope Church United will be looking to leapfrog Dudley should they overcome Brierley Hill A.O.G. I reckon by the end of play today Delph will achieve their aim with a win and that Living Hope may have to settle for a point.

Group ‘B’ sees the top 2 play each other with Monyhull Church hosting Christ Church Coseley. The other match in the group sees St Thomas’ Aldridge play Selly Oak Methodist. I fully expect A St Thomas win in that game which will apply some pressure on the 2 teams above. A win for Christ Church would see them through but I am going for a Monyhull win to really keep it interesting in that group.

Only one place to start in Division One and that is with Connect Sports versus Clarendon who have been the only team to take any points off Connect so far this season. My initial thought was a win for Connect, but it’s time to play a hunch and I am actually going for a narrow Clarendon win, absolutely no idea why I just have a feeling they may just edge this one.

Should that happen, St Mary’s would need to keep winning to have any hope of catching Connect. They face bottom placed Corinthians S.K who will be up against it today. St Mary’s comfortable winners for me today.

Early season pace setters Saint Michael play City Church who on their day can be a match for most teams. I’m going for a draw in this one.

St Andrews’ Netherton play Amblecote Nomads and for me it’s a simple win for St Andrews but I do believe that if they are not focused then Amblecote could get something from this match. It is definitely not a walk over.

Last game sees Chawn host Charlemont Star and i never have a clue what to do regarding Chawn with them either winning or losing. Charlemont Star have started scoring but they still have an average of 3 goals conceded per match. I am going for a score draw.

Thanks to Dave from St Andrews Netherton for being this weeks Prediction Challenger. (I know others still need to have a go but I was rushed and was actually on the phone to Dave at the time so simply asked him. Be assured, every Club Secretary will get their turn).
