Match preview

By Stephen Denny

Leiston make the long 350 mile round trip to Lye Meadow tonight, for what is the 5th attempt at getting this game played.
The original scheduled date of 24 November saw that cancelled due to Leiston's involvement in FA Trophy.
The 2nd attempt on 18 December was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
The 3rd on 29 January was again postponed due to forecasted heavy snow and
The 4th on 12 March because Leiston were in a County Cup match which takes priority.

They currently sit in 14th place in the league on 46 points from their 36 games, scoring 52 and conceding 56.
However, a win tonight would lift them into the top half into 11th place on same points as Rushall in 10th.

Their current form is not good, without a win in 5 and losing 3 of their last 4. In fact, they have only won 3 of their last 14, losing 7.
However, one of those wins came at the expense of Church, winning 2-0 on 23 February.
It wasn't a good day for Church, with individual mistakes, costing dear and goals from George Keys (73') and Christy Finch (90') took the points for Leiston.

Church returned to winning ways on Saturday beating Hiitchin Town and are still in that final play-off position on 62 points from 36 games.
Tonights game is their game in hand on their rivals, so it's vital Church pick up 3 points, ahead of a demanding schedule were they play Kettering (A), Coalville (H) and Stourbridge (A) in their next 3 games.
A win will see Church go 1 point behind Stratford and 6 points ahead of play off rivals AFC Rushden and Biggleswade and 4 ahead of Coalville, assuming they win their game in hand tonight v Royston.

Church's form has stuttered recently with 3 defeats and a draw from their last 7, but it's all about winning the points now and 3 tonight will do Church the power of good
