28 Days Later

Saturday, April 6 . Pitching In Southern League, Premier Division South

AFC Totton v Tiverton Town

Snows Stadium . 3pm

 

FOR their penultimate away game of the campaign, the Yellows visit fourth-placed Totton. Only 28 days have passed since Tiverton endured a 2-1 home defeat at the hands of today's opponents – momentary lapses of concentration and clinical finishing caused our downfall on that day.

 

The twin threat of striker Tony Lee, who scored in the reverse fixture, and ex-EFL marksman Scott Rendell amounts to 44 goals in the Premier South this term. The majority of Lee’s tally of 23 were scored for Poole, but to have two proven strikers in their line up is a bit of a luxury.

 

However, for Yellows, the prolific Joe Parker and the undoubted potential of Alex Fletcher to start firing could influence proceedings. Fletcher opened his account after his loan from Weston-super-Mare in the meeting last month with a fine finish.

Few teams have come away from Snows Stadium with all three points: Hungerford and Sholing are the only two sides to return home with victories during this season. Jimmy Ball’s team will be a stern test as Leigh Robinson’s match-day squad looks to avenge their recent defeat

 

Recent Totton acquisition Marcel Mcintosh starred on debut in the Stags’ 3-0 triumph against Walton & Hersham at the weekend following the midfielder’s loan move from Norwich City.

 

The other goalscorer in the previous fixture, defender Joe Oaster, played briefly in the Championship for QPR and then went on to make 113 appearances for Torquay United in League Two. In addition to that, he has enjoyed a distinguished non-league career: an England C International, 33-year-old Oaster has played for the likes of Havant & Waterlooville and Oxford City.

 

Looking to bounce back after a disappointing result under the circumstances at Dorchester, our coaching staff Leigh Robinson and Ben Gerring should have Jack Veale available again, although Jamie Richards will be a doubt. Josh Jones’s suspension follows today’s game, so he will be in the manager’s thoughts for his starting line-up.

Attention to detail, concentration, energy levels, belief and the courage to play need to be on show in order for us to have a chance of upsetting the odds. Hampshire-based Totton are trying to finish as high as possible in the play-offs to secure home advantage.
