Rangers ESFL team make the short, but tough, trip to Herstmonceux this week in a division two match. The teams have already met twice this season with rangers running out comfortable 5-0 in the league fixture while rangers came back from 2=0 down to claim a 4-2 victory in the cup.
Since the last meeting, Herstmonceux have played just two league games due to a combination of cup commitments and the bad weather. 'Ceux secured a solid 5-1 victory over bottom club Northiam in November while a week later, 'Ceux lost 2-0 at home to Crowhurst. Herstmonceux's league form reads: P5 W3 D0 L2 F13 A12 Pts9 and they currently sit sixth in the league. They will be looking to improve on this standing seeing as they have played the least amount of league games in the division and they are one of only two teams that can realistically stop rangers from wining the league.
Lime Cross is never an easy place to go to, as the recent cup game suggests. But with a strong squad at the management teams disposal, rangers will be hoping to secure all three points which will leave them just three points away from promotion.
The rangers MSFL team travel to Crawley to face Copthorne IV. The reverse fixture resulted in rangers securing a 5-0 victory back in October. Since that game, Copthorne have played seven more league games where they have secured just four points for their troubles. Losses to Danehill (6-1) and DCK Copthorne II (6-1 and 5-1) was followed up by a very credible 3-3 against Jarvis Brook II. However, two defeats to Keymer and Framfield and Blackboys United II saw them leave empty handed, but they did manage to secure three points in their last fixture after beating Ashurst Wood II 1=0. Their league form reads P12 W2 D1 L9 F12 A45 Pts7 and they are currently ninth in division six.
Rangers will be full of confidence after last weeks superb comeback, three points is a must.
Good luck to both our sides.
