Mildenhall Town aim to continue fine run

Have your say

FREESCORING Mildenhall Town aim to stretch their unbeaten Ridgeons League Premier Division sequence to five games tomorrow when they travel to Hadleigh United (3pm).

After recording an impressive 1-0 home win against CRC on Saturday, team manager Christian Appleford is confident his side - who are unbeaten in 12 games at Recreation Way - can now maintain their top six position.

“We are fifth and doing really well at the moment,” said Appleford. “There are still a number of big, solid clubs around us with games in hand, but at this stage I firmly believe it is nice to have the points in the bag.”

Town have scored 11 goals in their last four league outings - strikes that have derived from five different players.

“We are looking good in attack, creating chances and scoring,” said Appleford.

“At home especially, we are doing well and if we can just take that consistent form on our travels then we could be right up there.”

Eighth-placed Hadleigh also go into the game in good form, having tasted defeat just once in their last seven league matches - that a 6-3 reverse at title-chasing Leiston.

United’s top goalscorer is former Hall frontman Ben Deacon and Appleford is demanding a big effort from his players.

“Hadleigh, like CRC, are another team close to us in the table and we will have to be at our best if we are to return with the three points,” he added.

Midfielder Karl Parish has left Recreation Way to join fellow Premier Division side Walsham-le-Willows this week.
