Prediction Challenge – 3rd November

Well yet another midnight bashing of the keyboard with my thoughts regarding todays matches. Chawn have suffered consecutive defeats and whilst it was close the previous week they took a bit of a hammering against Life Central. They face Saint Michael who also took a heavy defeat a couple of weeks ago but had a creditable draw versus Rowley last week. I’m taking Chawn to win this one. Clarendon remain one of only 3 teams unbeaten in the whole league and look as though they will be there or thereabouts again come seasons end. They face a St Andrews team who will be full of confidence following their big win last week. However, tomorrows opponents will be a tougher nut to crack. I expect St Andrews to fall short in what should be an entertaining encounter…Clarendon win. Dropping into Division 2 sees another unbeaten team in Amblecote Nomads come up against the leading goal scorers in that Division, Living Hope Church United, although there is not much in it. I think there may be new leaders by the end of play tomorrow and whilst I think Living Hope will win this clash I don’t think they will claim top spot. Looking elsewhere I reckon that Corinthians S.K will assume the role as leaders with a home win over Delph Athletic. Delph had a good result versus Amblecote last week but I do not anticipate the same this week. Current Division 1 leaders, Connect Sports face City Church who had a convincing win last week. Can they do it again against the current top boys? Well, like most teams at this level, a lot depends on whether you can get your best team out on a regular basis. I’m not expecting loads of goals in this game because both teams are decent in defence, (what’s that? 5 each)! I’m going for Connect to nick it by the odd goal. My hunch last week, Monyhull, fell just short in a 2-1 defeat to Connect and face another top team today in St Marys who are also unbeaten so far this season. I’ve predicted a 3-1 win to St Mary’s but having just looked at the League table have noticed they have only let in 2 goals in 5 games, now that’s impressive. I’m sticking with it though, Monyhull to breach their defence at least once. Brierley Hill in Division 2 notched up only their 2nd win of the season scoring 5 in the process! They are away today against Dudley Lions whose 8 games so far have averaged 5.5 goals. I’m not expecting that many and am going for a 3-0 win for the Dudley lads. The last game in Division 2 sees Excel play St Thomas Aldridge with both teams having won just 1 game each so far this season. So who will get their 2nd win? Both defences concede a fair bit and there isn’t much to chose between the attacking stats. On the fence for this one, a score draw. 2 games left to predict in Division 1 so I will start with Selly Oak Methodist versus Life Central. Selly Oak have taken two thumpings on the trot and Life Central appear to have loads of goals in them especially with a very convincing win over Chawn last week, Leon Naylor for them in his 6th consecutive league game. So it all points to a decent win for Life Central…or does it? Hunch time, score draw it is. Rowley College versus Charlemont Star is the last one to look at and both teams appear to have very similar attack and defence stats. I’m not sure whether Rowley will be going up the rollercoaster or hammering down the other side but I always think of Charlemont, (maybe incorrectly), as a good steady team. With this in mind, it’s yet another score draw for me.

This weeks Challenger is Phil Bostock from Corinthians S.K.
