THE FACTS

Tividale are on the road for the next two weeks after their 2-1 defeat at home last Saturday against Bilston Town Community FC a defeat that ended their 15 game unbeaten run. This the first, is away at Dudley Sports and next Saturday 15th December we are away at Bewdley Town

The game at Dudley Sports is at their High Arcal Ground, Hillcrest Avenue, Brierley Hill, West Midlands DY5 3QH

We can expect a tough game as Dudley Sports manager Tony Gore (better known as Sweeney) never put’s out a side that doesn’t give 110% especially on their home ground.

Sports currently sit in 17th place just above the relegation zone but are 7 points clear with a game in hand. Their last outing was a 1-0 defeat at the hands of their tenants Smethwick Rangers. But prior to that they won their last 3 games in all competitions including an impressive 3-2 away win at Malvern Town in the Premier League Cup.

Last season when the teams met Dan Smith scored a brace to help us to hard earned 2-1 win at High Arcal. Which was also notable for the first team debut of Bradley Welding.

In the home fixture Tividale gained a far more comfortable 6-2 win. With another two goals for Dan Smith also two for Darragh Bustin and one a piece for Demetri Brown and Elliott Hartley.
