Quick Preview – 22nd February

In all honesty I am not expecting any matches to be played this week and will be pleasantly pleased if some are. Two matches have already bitten the dust and with my expectations low plus the fact that other football stuff is taking all my time up it really is a quick preview.

I expect we will know who will be progressing from Group ‘A’ in the ‘Division 2 Cup’ as it’s a banker win for Delph Athletic who play Brierley Hill A.O.G and as I am going for Living Hope Church United to beat Dudley Lions then that would mean both victorious clubs on the day would be in the semi’s. With the Monyhull Church vs St Thomas’ Aldridge match postponed, Christ Church Coseley in Group ‘B’ will also be looking to secure their place in the semi’s and can do so with a win, which is exactly what I am going for.

A huge match at the bottom of Division 1 sees Charlemont Star host Amblecote Nomads, a win for either side may just keep their hopes alive of Division One football next season. I think it will end up all square but I hope there is a winner just to put a little bit of pressure on the teams above them both.

In reality I do not see the next 2 teams above them being caught but City Church will be looking over their shoulder should they lose to Saint Michael who started the season really well but have faded as the season has progressed. Sitting on the fence for this one and going for a draw. Clarendon are the other team down there but their fixture against Chawn is off.

The next match sees my pre-season tip for bottom face the team who currently occupy that position. Corinthians S.K host Rowley College and I can repeat now that my choice for Rowley to finish the season in bottom has absolutely no chance of happening especially as I expect them to break the 20 points barrier with a convincing win. This really is a must win game for Corinthians S.K and if they could pull it off it would give them a glimmer of hope. I cannot see it happening though.

An interesting match sees 3rd play 4th with St Mary’s hosting St Andrews Netherton. Should Saint Michael drop points then both of these sides will be looking to take advantage in chasing down 2nd place. I am going for St Mary’s experience to see them take the 3 points.

Thanks to John Myatt from St Mary’s for being this weeks Prediction Challenger.

This week seems to have been bad news followed by more bad news regarding the health of people within the League. I would ask that people remember and pray for everyone and their families who are involved within this League in whatever capacity, players, spectators, referee’s, Club Officials and League Officials. I know some Clubs say a prayer before their match, I would ask you to remember the aforementioned regarding their health.

Be Blessed Everyone, Neil Kovacs
