Tony Rickson previews Sittingbourne v Corinthian-Casuals

Written by Tony Rickson on 30th October 2016



Sittingbourne have two home games in five days as they bid to get their season back on track after a disappointing October.

They lost six out of eight games during the month and worryingly only scored five goals, and never more than one in a game.

They started the season with goals flowing but they’ve certainly dried up recently, and the loss of top scorer Miles Cornwell to football a division higher with Folkestone Invicta has been particularly costly.

On Tuesday night they come up against a Corinthian Casuals side who have made a strong start to the season, and are currently sixth in Ryman League South.

They’ve slipped back a bit recently and have only won one out of their last four league games, but they have an excellent away record with just one defeat in six.

But Casuals did lose away on Saturday, going out of the FA Trophy 3-2 at Chalfont St Peter when they had three players sent off in a dramatic climax to the game.

Sittingbourne go into the match on the back of a 2-1 defeat at Guernsey on  Saturday, Steven Ita scoring a late injury time goal with the aid of a deflection.

Goalkeeper Simon Overland suffered an ankle injury in that game but it’s hoped he will shake it off in time for the visit of Casuals.

Corinthian Casuals did the double over Sittingbourne last season, beating them 1-0 and 2-1, on their way to a sixth place finish, just one point away from a play-off place.
