Tony Rickson previews Molesey v Sittingbourne

Written by Peter Pitts on 20th November 2017



It’s been such a busy time for Sittingbourne that they’ve played nine matches since they last played an away game in the league.

It was over a month ago and it was down in Sussex and they sauntered to a 4-0 victory against a Shoreham side struggling at the wrong end of the Bostik South League table.

Since then it’s been a real mixed bag of results for Sittingbourne, who return to away league match action this Tuesday night away to Molesey.

When they beat Shoreham that day they were second in the league, but a mix of difficult home matches since then, plus games being called off because of five matches in their FA Trophy run, means they’ve dropped down the table.

They’re now down to ninth but with games in hand over many of the teams above them and a play-off place is still well within their reach.

Opponents Molesey are down in 22nd place and have had a difficult season, though at home they’ve won four out of eight games.

They’ve lost six out of their last nine league and cup games but earned a good goalless draw at Herne Bay on Saturday.

Sittingbourne were also goalless on Saturday, beaten 3-0 at home in the rain by a South Park side who were the better team on the day.

It was the first time this season they’d conceded three goals in a game, their defence having been very secure up till then.

Sittingbourne last played at Molesey just over a year ago when Jordan Gallacher scored a second half equaliser to earn them a 1-1 draw.

In the return match at Woodstock, Sittingbourne won 2-0 thanks to goals by Jono Richardson and David Abe.
