In-form Evesham set sights on Wimborne win
7:00am Saturday 28th December 2013 in Sport
EVESHAM United will look to continue their Calor Southern League Division One South and West momentum at home to Wimborne Town today (3pm).
The Dorset-based visitors are well placed in 11th position but go into the game without a victory since the 2-1 win over Fleet Town on December 7.
Although the Robins are five points and three places worse off than Wimborne, Paul Collicutt’s men should be full of confidence having lost just twice in the league since the start of November.
Carl Brown’s 73rd-minute strike gave the Spiers and Hartwell Jubilee Stadium outfit a 1-0 win at Stratford Town on Boxing Day.
Evesham also pushed high-flying Circencester Town all the way in a narrow 3-2 home defeat just before Christmas.
The Boxing Day derby between Pershore Town and Littleton in the St Mary's Hospice Midland Combination Premier Division was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
But Bromsgrove Sporting beat Victoria Ground tenants Earlswood Town 2-1 with goals coming from Mark Bellingham and Joe Cole.
Title-chasing Badsey Ran-gers defeated Inkberrow 2-0 in Division Two thanks to strikes by Ciaran Gilbert and Sam Penfold. Ross Selby was on target for mid-table Perrywood in a 2-1 home loss to Leamington Hibernian.
