Tony Rickson previews Sittingbourne v Ramsgate

Written by Tony Rickson on 25th September 2016

For the second time in four days, Sittingbourne are at home to a team who haven’t won a game this month
Lewes ended their poor run of results on Saturday by scoring three late goals to cancel out Miles Cornwell’s 56th minute opener for 
Now it’s down to Ramsgate to see if they can do the same when they visit Woodstock on Tuesday night.
Ramsgate, managed by ex-Sittingbourrne bosses Jim and Danny Ward and packed with ex-Brickie players, made a good start to their season but 
have lost their last five games in a row.
They’ve had a tough run of fixtures, coming up against some of the early pace-setters in Ryman South, and were beaten 1-0 at Corinthian-Casuals on Saturday while Sittingbourne were losing to Lewes.Also during September, Ramsgate lost to Sittingbourne in the League 
Cup, losing 2-1 in an exciting game when the teams met just a fortnight ago.
Ramsgate’s team on Saturday contained three former Sittingbourne players – Luke Girt, Tom Loynes and Ollie Gray – but they were without 
former Brickie stalwart George Crimmen, who was injured in the previous match.And Ramsgate have lost top scorer Joe Taylor, who has moved up a 
division to play for Folkestone Invicta.
Sittingbourne have an excellent recent record against Ramsgate, comfortably beating them twice last season with Jordan Wells – who was a 
spectator at Saturday’s game – scoring a late hat-trick in the home match.
They will be waiting to see how influential young midfielder Josh Wisson feels, after he was forced off in the first half of Saturday’s 
game suffering from sickness.
Sittingbourne’s defeat by Lewes cost them their unbeaten home record in the league but they are still in the top half of the league table with 
games in hand on some of the teams above them and having lost only twice this season.
