Update 26th February – Review and Challenge

This weeks Prediction Challenge comes from Zion City but their Club Sec has passed the responsibility on to their Team Manager, Roberto Gocan. (I did think Georgina would do this mind you).

I used to compare Clarendon to a steam roller who virtually beat everyone before them over a dominant decade in the League. Well, if they were a steam roller, St Mary’s must be something like a juggernaut with their form the past few seasons. A massive win last week over their nearest rivals Wednesbury Baptist almost has me ordering their Champions medals already. I don’t thnk even a Devon Loch style slip would see them through the title away. With that in mind, I am going for another win for them over Renewal Solhull tomorrow. Wednesbury face Rowley tomorrow and it’s not inconceivable that they could still challenge for 2nd place. Like Zion Athletic and Clarendon they do have games in hand but they are must wins. For Rowley though, I think Wednesbury will finish off their dreams of a 2nd place finish tomorrow. I fancy Zion and Clarendon to both keep their hopes alive with a win over Connect and City Church respectively. I am sure they will both be hoping for a Rowley win though! The last game n Div 1 sees Charlemont Star face Chawn Hill Church, if memory serves me right, these are normally close affairs. Charlemont do need to start picking up points as they remain in the bottom 2 and whilst they do have games in hand, 1 win so far is worse than I thought they would be doing. Head says a draw but I am going to go with a hunch and tip the Chawn lads to win.

Div 2 leaders Zion City are away to Maple Leaf whose early season dominant form seems to have become a distant memory. Zion have been sweeping all aside but as their recent 2-2 draw with Hawbush shows, they can still blow cold. I believe this is a must win for them and take them to do so. St Mattew’s Walsall, who are currently 2nd, face St Thomas’ Aldridge and I do not see any hope for Steve’s lads apart from keeping the goal tally down. A look at the table has made me change my mind on 1 prediction, with 3rd place Saint Michael not playing, if results go as I think then Selly Oak Methodist could leap into 3rd place with a win over Sandwell Utd. A draw was my first thought but now I am tipping Selly Oak to do just that. Dudley Lions travel to face Hawbush and a win may just keep their promotion hopes alive. The same can be said regarding Corinthans S.K as they face Brierley Hill A.O.G. I am tipping both Dudley and Corinthians to win. Think that’s all the games covered, now I am hoping they all get played!
