Rothwell Reserves v Kirk Deighton Rangers Reserves Match Preview.

We're on the trail of another three points tomorrow when we travel to Fleet Lane, home of Rothwell Reserves for this latest round of West Yorkshire Alliance Division Two games.

The games now return to their usual pre-Christmas kick-off time of 2:30 pm, and the weather is forecast to be a combination of rain, sun and strong winds.

The Opposition.

Coming into this game, our hosts sit in 5th place in the league, ten points behind us.

Form at home seems to be a bit hit-and-miss with Rothwell, with two wins, one draw and two defeats so far. Their last match at Fleet Lane saw them beaten 6-2 by leaders Ilkley Town.

Goals wise, they have an even record having scored and conceded 18 apiece, which averages 3.6 goals scored/conceded per home match.

According to FA full-time website, George Walker is their leading goalscorer at present with six goals. Aaron Fell is one behind, and William Mitchell makes the leading trio with four goals.

Head To Head.

This is the return meeting between the two clubs, and it's a chance for us to get even, as we were beaten 4-3 at Barr Field in October 2019 (Will Hodson, Brad Spencer and Michael McCartney scored for us).

We have played Rothwell Reserves a total of three times with a win, a draw and a loss being the outcome.

Will Hodson nets against Rothwell during the 4-3 defeat in October.
