NCEL Division One – 13th April 2019
Just the three games left for The Robins ,this season , and Saturday 13th April (3pm) sees us visit Armthorpe Welfare for our penultimate away game.
Armthorpe sit in fourteenth place in the table , with thirty seven points from their thirty four games. They are now eight points above the second relegation spot having gained a massive three points ,after coming from behind to beat Swallownest , on Wednesday night. They will know that beating Selby on Saturday will mean that it is impossible for the bottom two clubs, Harworth and Bolsover, to catch them. With safety beckoning, you can bet that Armthorpe will be giving it their all on Saturday.
Surprisingly it is Armthorpe’s home form which has been their Achilles heel, with one of the worst home records in the division. Surprising, as their record away is quite good, and superior to the Robin’s record.
Whilst the Armthorpe attack has fared pretty well, it is the defence that has caused them problems. Their defence is the third worst in the league. They have only kept three clean sheets all season. ( Selby have six). Hopefully this means there will be goals on Saturday.
Town will be taking their poor away record to Armthorpe, and will be hoping to make late season improvements. Selby will know that a full blooded display will be needed to get anything from the game, and that for the players ,playing within themselves, is not an option, after Tuesday’s disappointing loss.
Opportunities to support the Robins this season are fast running out. Armthorpe is one of the shortest away trips , so make sure you are there on Saturday to support the team.
Armthorpe play at the M Pilbeam Construction Stadium, Church Street, Armthorpe, Doncaster.
The SAT-NAV code is DN3 3AG.
As ever see you there.
