Hemel Hempstead Town Match Preview

 

On Saturday Cirencester Town play host to Hemel Hempstead Town who currently lay 13th in the Zamaretto Premier Division. Hemel Hempstead are only ahead of the Centurions by one goal on goal difference although they have played one game less so it looks like a tight game in store. The two sides met on a wet and cold mid October evening at Vauxhall Road, Hemel Hempstead and fought out a 2-2 draw with Hemel Hempstead snatching a debatable penalty equalizer with seven minutes to play which was only put away on the rebound after Matt Bulman had made a great save.

Cirencester Town will also be looking to change an interesting sequence of results for Hemel Hempstead on Saturday as if their results over the last eight games are anything to go by our visitors are due a win as their run is as follows: LWLWLWLW

As has been the case all season the Cirencester backline will once again have to be on their guard as they come up against the League’s current second highest scorer Dennis Fenemore (pictured left) who has 19 league goals to his name. Previous to joining Hemel Hempstead in July 2010 he had scored 30 goals the season before for fellow Zamaretto side Burnham. Fenemore it was who scored the rebound from the penalty in October which saw them snatch a point.

With the formation Cirencester have played once again this season following on from last season generally the goals have continued to flow. With 53 league goals scored so far the side is competing well in the goal-scoring stakes. Apart from Jody Bevan’s standout 17 goals the rest have been shared around by the likes of Lyndon Tomkins, Mark Draycott, Matt Sysum and Rob Hoskin.

Carl Brown (pictured right) by his own admission has had a season to forget so you could see the relief he felt and the satisfaction his goal last Saturday at Bedford brought his team-mates by the way they celebrated his goal with him. He will be hoping to finish the season with a flourish to prove he is capable of playing at Zamaretto Premier Division level as on his day he is a handful for sides at most levels of non league. Also pleased with his goals at Bedford was Mark Draycott who took plenty of stick off his team-mates in the build up to the game and the duel with namesake Ian Draycott of Bedford. Despite a mix-up between Sean Wood and Matty Bulman gifting Ian Draycott the opening goal early on, Mark went on to notch two goals and show that when he gets himself in good positions he has the quality to finish well.

With Weymouth getting beat 4-1 at Bedford Town on Tuesday evening Cirencester Town need only 1 point from their remaining four games to mathematically secure their premier division status for another season. This season was always about sustaining the clubs position in the premier division so gaining that point required would then allow manager Brian Hughes (pictured left) and his coaching staff to start making plans for next season and the players that they will need to move forwards.
