Eastbourne Rangers look to cause a massive upset when they face league leaders and title favourites Little Chelsea at the sports park this weekend. Rangers have improved over the past two games which has seen the red and blacks secure back to back wins which also brought to an end the worst ever losing streak in rangers history.
Little Chelsea began their league campaign with two consecutive home games which saw them easily overcome Wadhurst United and Catsfield, 5-2 and 6-1 respectively. They then faced Crowhurst on the road where they notched up a 4-1 win at Crowhurst Rec while a break in league action saw them pummel Herstmonceux 10-4 in the league cup. Seven days later, Little Chelsea returned to league action where they faced a much changed Herstmonceux side at Lime Cross which saw them edge a 2-1 victory in what has been their tightest game this season to date. Last weekend saw a return to the sports park where Little Chelsea thumped Ninfield United 7-3. This week’s opposition possess the division’s top scorer in the shape of striker Joe Morris who has scored an impressive 10 goals already this season. Their league record is equally impressive – P5 W5 D0 L0 F24 A8 Pts15. Like rangers they are yet to keep a clean sheet this season but that may well be of little concern to them given their results and goal scoring escapades so far. Rangers are full of confidence and hope to compete in a game against what should be the toughest opposition in the league this campaign.
