Leiston v Bedworth United
A win on Tuesday night at the Carlsberg Stadium against Biggleswade Town took Leiston up to 11th place in the Southern League Central Premier table and restored a bit of confidence after the Suffolk side were defeated 4-0 at Stourbridge last weekend.
The Blues will be looking to build on their midweek victory today as they entertain Bedworth United at Victory Road.
Bedworth are currently bottom and have taken just 14 points from 33 league games this season.
“We felt we were the better side against Stourbridge last week in the first half,” Leiston assistant boss David Head said after Tuesday night’s win at Biggleswade.
“But in the second half, we got punished and conceded three times in ten minutes.
“Myself and Stuart Boardley were extremely pleased with the attitude shown in the recent match at Biggleswade.
“Trailing 1-0 at the break, I thought we deserved to win the match and it’s always nice to get an injury-time winner.
“It was pleasing to end the game with five players under 20 years of age on the pitch and seeing young Will Davies net the winner as well as giving Mason Sinclair his debut at just 16 years of age.
“The Bedworth match this Saturday will be tough as they are scrapping for every point possible at the moment.”
