TRIO AGAIN FACE FITNESS TESTS AHEAD OF KENT RELIANCE SENIOR CUP TIE WITH BOROUGH

Bostik South promotion chasers Greenwich Borough visit Invicta’s Fullicks Stadium for the second time in 11 days tomorrow, Tuesday, as the two sides meet again in cup-tie action – this time in the Kent Reliance Senior Cup, Second Round.

A dramatic stoppage time winner from Kieron McCann gave Premier Division Folkestone a 3-2 victory a week ago Saturday to put them into the Second Qualifying Round of the Emirates FA Cup while, since that game, Neil Cugley’s much changed side got through their opening county cup tie at Hythe on penalties last midweek to set up this second meeting with highly ambitious Borough.

Manager Cugley is planning late fitness tests for strikers Ade Yusuff and Ian Draycott and utility man Matt Newman who all missed Saturday’s 2-0 home win against Staines Town in the hope that at least one or two of that trio may be included tomorrow.

“They were all reasonably close to playing (against Staines) so there’s a chance that the few extra days may have made a difference. We want to put out as strong a side as we can for our home fans tomorrow, though we do have the FA Cup tie (at home to Tooting & Mitcham this coming weekend) to think about.”

Sleeves

Cugley was delighted with the performances of fit again Joe Taylor and Jordan Wrigh (below right) at the weekend and joined the chorus of praise for man of the match keeper Tim Roberts.

“The players all rolled their sleeves up and worked hard for those three points” he said.

“Jordan had his best game so far this season and Joe was superb up front, though we knew that Staines are a good side and Tim was outstanding. I’ve been telling people for years how good he is – he’s definitely one of the best and maybe the best goalkeeper I’ve ever worked with.”

There was praise too for midfielder Ronnie Dolan, who had played his first game for eight months at Hythe and was drafted in at the last minute for his return to league action against Staines.

“He certainly didn’t turn up expecting to play” admitted the manager, “but he’s a terrific lad and did everything we asked of him.

“But he’s got the operation on his ankle that he’s been waiting so long for on Wednesday and we obviously hope that goes well. Sensibly speaking, we don’t expect him back now until after Christmas, but you never know.”

For the moment, at least, Cugley is not considering recalling either striker Euan Sahadow or midfielder Kwabs Osei from their recently begun ‘loan’ spells at Chatham Town and Cray Valley respectively, both having signed on a dual-registration basis to get more game time in with the Southern Counties East Premier Division sides.

Sahadow scored to help Chatham beat former Ryman Division One Redhill 3-1 in the FA Vase at the weekend while Osei was in former Invicta player and more recently scout Kevin Watson’s Cray Valley squad that went down 2-1 to Tunbridge Wells at Eltham at the weekend.

“I had a word with Euan last week and it’s good to see him on the scoresheet again” said the boss.

“And it was Kevin (Watson) who recommended Kwabs to us so I’m sure that he’ll give him plenty of games for them – it’s fairly local for Kwebs. They’re both still Folkestone players of course and we’re keeping a close watch on how they’re doing.”

Greenwich have only played once since their FA Cup visit to the Fullicks – drawing 2-2 away to East Grinstead Town in Bostik South at the weekend with goals from Francis Babaloa and Charlie MacDonald  (left) – though their manager Gary Alexander will not be too happy after they blew a 2-0 lead inside the final quarter hour and dropped two points.

As with the Hythe game seven days ago, if the scores are level at the end of 90 minutes tomorrow’s tie would go straight to penalties.

And the hero of last week’s shoot-out – standby keeper Scott Chalmers-Stevens may well retain his place as Kent Reliance Senior Cup numero uno!
