Blues look to thrill at Hill

Categories: Club News,Uncategorized

Blues will look to pick up three vital Bostik League points, when they travel to Burgess Hill Town today.

A pair of equalisers from Jamie Cureton – the second in injury time – saw Blues snatch a 2-2 draw when the two sides met in early October.

The Hillians arrived at the home of football having been hammered 8-0 at Bognor Regis Town on Tuesday and were bottom of the table with just three points from nine games without a first league win this season.

However their form has improved since then, but a 2-0 loss at fellow strugglers AFC Hornchurch saw the Hillians drop to 19th in the table with 24 points from 25 games, and are only above the relegation zone on goal difference. They did record a surprise 1-0 win against Folkestone Invicta in the FA Cup before going down 3-0 at Vanarama South side Hampton & Richmond.

Hill are another new opponent for the Blue Brazil, and the Sussex side were only been saved from the drop by the reorganisation of non-league football and only avoiding relegation on goal difference.

They did progress in the FA Cup with wins against Colney Heath (after a replay) and National League South Wealdstone before losing against Dartford. They also defeated Aveley in the FA Trophy before going out against Hendon. Crowds at Leylands Park held up well despite a difficult third season at step 3 level dropping by just six percent to 328.
