K’s trip for Blues

Blues will look to end a run of two straight losses as they travel to Kingstonian on Bank Holiday Monday.
A blunder by the Isthmian League means that Stortford are without a game on Saturday as their scheduled opponents, Cray Wanderers, are in FA Cup action – and the game will now be played on Tuesday 17th September.
Monday’s trip to Kingstonian will see Blues face a side who have drawn their opening three Isthmian League games. A goalless home draw against newly promoted Cray was followed by a 1-1 result at Wingate & Finchley. Saturday’s 3-3 home draw against Margate saw Louie Theophanous hit a 15-minute hat-trick.
The K’s spent heavily in the summer of 2018, including the signing of former Blues’ top scorer Elliott Buchannan, and were expected to challenge for the title.
But a disasterous campaign saw them struggle for long spells, eventually finishing 18th with 45 points from 42 games as well as exiting the FA Cup at the first stage with a defeat against Hastings United. They also fell at the first hurdle in the FA Trophy with a replay loss at Bedford Town.
Despite that poor campaign they took all six points against the Blues, winning 3-2 at St George’s Playing Fields in September in what proved to be Adam Flint’s final game as manager before completing a double with a 3-0 victory at the ProKit (UK) Stadium in January.
Stortford will be without forward Luke Callendar who starts a three match ban following his red card against Enfield Town
