NCEL League Cup – 12th March 2019
Tuesday 12th March 2019 sees us play our League Cup quarter final match at The Fairfax Plant Hire Stadium. (As ever, weather permitting.)
Our visitors will be fellow League One side Swallownest. We have already played both our league games against Swallownest for this season.
Our home game was in those halcyon days last year, when we won far more games than we lost. Even away from home! You will recall, it was a very tight game, and the victory was secured by a single Carl Stewart goal.
The away game was also last year, but in December, and by this time we had forgotten how to win, especially away from home. Town were well beaten by two goals to nil, and were lucky not to suffer a heavier defeat.
Since Swallownest played us they have been inconsistent, good victories, home and away, punctuated by some not so good results. They will arrive at The Fairfax in eleventh place in the league, only eight points behind Selby but having played two games less. This points to a very close encounter. Both clubs, only have this competition as a chance to win silverware, and so will be giving this game their absolute all.
Swallownest reached this stage of the competition by beating Premier League Hall Road Rangers, away in Hull, by two goals to one.
Robin’s fans will remember their epic victory, away at Premier League Eccleshill United. They will be hoping that the team can, once again, engender the fighting spirit, whichearned them that win against all odds.
There may only be Tuesday’s game, and the last game of the season, left to visit The Fairfax Plant Hire Stadium his season, so make sure that you are there to support the team.
Cup Ties under floodlights are always special, so let’s have a bumper crowd making a lot of noise.
Please remember it is a Cup Tie so all must pay.
As ever see you there.
