Ebbsfleet United v Braintree Town (National League South)
Ebbsfleet have had a historic start to their season, winning 7 games from a possible 7 so far. They’ll be looking to extend this run even further against a Braintree side that are experiencing some good form at the moment. The home side come off the back of a 3-1 win at home to a strong Bath side where (unsurprisingly) Dominic Poleon bagged a brace. The league’s top scorer will certainly be looking to find the scoresheet on the evening, as he has done in 5 of the 7 games he’s played so far. I have no doubts that Ebbsfleet will be the stronger side on the day and I’ll be shocked if they don’t come away with three points, however this is not a Braintree side that will fold against strong opposition.
Braintree have lost on only 2 occasions so far this season, once to Dulwich on the first game of the season and the other to Bath who are also a promotion contender this season. There’s no denying that Braintree will go into this fixture as fair underdogs although I feel confident they will find the back of the net. Aaron Blair has scored 5 already this season, he will be looking to get another come Tuesday. Ebbsfleet have kept only 2 clean sheets this season and Braintree have been fantastic for goals so far. They’ve scored in every game they’ve played this season, including some tough opposition and are currently on incredible form – scoring 10 goals in the last 3 games. For these reasons, I feel as though both teams will be getting on the scoresheet in this game.
Bath City v Weymouth (National League South)
Bath have lost two games this season, one being the first game of the season to Dartford and the other being last weekend to an undefeated Ebbsfleet side. Cody Cooke has been undeniably prolific this season, scoring 6 goals in 7 games. When coming against this Weymouth defence, I imagine he will fancy his chances of adding to that tally. They will also certainly be looking to regain some form after losing their previous game and Weymouth at home is a way of doing so – they’ll be incredibly disappointed if they drop points here.
Weymouth have had a struggling start to the season, leaving them bottom of the table without a win so far. They have gained their first two points in their last two games, although both of those against teams that have had poor starts to the season. Even then, they were against 10 men in both of those games and put in weak performances – most teams would have gained 6 points in those two games. There are seemingly some issues going on behind the scenes at Weymouth which is reflective in their performances on the pitch. Still without a win, I doubt they will find one away to a strong Bath side with a proven goalscorer and the need to find form again. Bath have scored 15 goals this season, putting them 4th in the league for goals scored. Weymouth have conceded 15 goals so far, putting them 2nd in the league for the most goals conceded. You can expect Bath to come out firing from the start in this fixture.
Worthing v Cheshunt (National League South)
Worthing are yet to lose this season, one of three teams in the league to do so. At times, they have struggled for goals however Callum Kealy has found some form recently and I have no doubts that Cheshunt will see him as the biggest threat going into this fixture. They currently sit 3rd in the league and will need a win here if they want to compete with Ebbsfleet and Havant as they are now 4 points from 2nd with Chelmsford only one point behind them. The only issue Worthing face is that they are yet to win a home game, having drawn three games from three. Although, if they are going to get their first win, 23rd place Cheshunt may be the team to get it against. If Worthing come away from this fixture with anything less than three points, they will be severely disappointed.
Cheshunt have won 1 and lost 6 this season, the one win coming on the first day of the season and they have lost every game since. They haven’t scored a goal in the last 2 games and other than their first game, are yet to score more than one goal in a game. Their last game saw them lose 1-0 to Farnborough, which despite losing, saw some positive sparks and could have easily been 0-0 if it wasn’t for a scrappy mistake. In light of this, it’s worth considering that Worthing have the quality on the pitch that sides like Farnborough do not have. On occasions where Cheshunt have played strong sides this season, such as Braintree and Welling, they haven’t looked like taking points off them. Therefore, I believe Worthing come away with all three points.
