Welling United .v. Eastbourne Borough
Blue Square Bet South
Park View Road
Kick-off 7.45 pm
Last time out away from home The Sports claimed a very useful point at Crabble as they drew 0-0 with Dover, and indeed could have claimed all 3 points with a bit more luck in front of goal. No doubt Tommy Widdrington will look to his side to regain the defensive strength on show during the Bank Holiday tussle. Indeed Widdrington highlighted the difference .v. Maidenhead was the cruel punishment of a couple of uncharacteristic lapses in the back four.
Welling also came off second best this Saturday and Wings boss Jamie Day blamed a perceived 'lack of effort' from his players that contributed to their first defeat of the season .v. Hayes & Yeading. To make matters worse for our hosts Welling's injury list continued to grow with ex Sport Louis Fazakerley suffering from illness, and two others suffering injuries.
Looking forward to the game Widdrington commented that "the best thing from Saturdays defeat" was that there was an early chance to put right the Maidenhead result.
