Andy Goodchild will be hoping for a change in Langney's fortunes this weekend as we welcome Shoreham FC to Priory Lane on Saturday. The Wanderers are still in search of there first victory this season and last weekends Buildbase FA Vase defeat was our third on the bounce.
Andy Goodchild was particularly disappointed with the first half performance against a strong Canterbury City so he'll be looking for complete 90 minute performance this time around. Early season injuries to key members of the squad hasn't helped the cause either as we look to get a positive result.
The visitors Shoreham re joined the SCFL having been relegated from The Bostik South in what was a very tough and long season for them at that level. Shoreham come to us on the back of a 2-1 home defeat in the Peter Bentley Cup on Tuesday night, courtesy of Lingfield. Prior to that it's been a bit unpredictable with some excellent wins, but mixed in with defeats. Last time out in the league they lost to Horsham YMCA, no shame in that as they'll be pushing for the title. What probably will worry them is the current run of 4 defeats in the last 6. But they have a very capable squad with some talented players, with the likes of Andrew Dalhouse, Kai Bichard and Harvey Dunk. They've also shown they've got spirit having come back from 2 down against Lancing and also sneaking a win against Eastbourne Town when being on the back foot mostly.
So 2 teams both looking to get back in the winning habit and both teams probably fancying there chances of the 3 points. So it's all set up for another cracking match in the SCFL.
