Robins Pose Strong Challenge

After two weeks without a fixture, Enfield Town visit Carshalton Athletic tomorrow hoping to maintain a return to the kind of form shown in our excellent 3-0 win at Canvey Island following somewhat of a downturn.

Carshalton surrendered a two-goal lead at Hashtag last Saturday and although their last home game resulted in a 2-1 defeat to Cray, the previous two yielded four points from Hornchurch and Hastings.

Four points behind Town having played two games more, the Robins are nevertheless dangerous opponents on their day – as their 3-0 win at our place earlier in the season illustrated.

And the fact that they have lost only one of their last nine games says everything you need to know about the challenge ahead.

 “Having two weeks without a game is not ideal but we’ve worked hard in training,” said Gavin Macpherson.

“ Carshalton will be tough, especially on their own patch which is not our natural surface. But after a good solid win at Canvey we should be in good spirits, I’ve asked the players to increase their levels and I’ve been pleased with how they are applying themselves.”
