AFC Sudbury are on the road again tomorrow as they venture to Soham Town Rangers in the Bostik North League looking to put their disappointing recent results against Grays and Witham behind them, writes Darren Theobald.

Soham Town Rangers who are in very good form at the moment having won three out of their last four matches with wins against Witham, Great Wakering and last weekend Canvey Island, and will be looking to continue their climb up from the bottom of the table, they currently sit in 18th place.

AFC Sudbury will be without the suspended Phil Kelly after last weekend’s straight red card in the first half against Witham.

Some better news for AFC Sudbury manager Mark Morsley is the return to the squad of skipper Joe Whight and midfielder Billy Holland, both sorely missed last weekend.

Apart from Kelly, Morsley will have a virtually full squad to choose from and will be looking for a reaction after recent defeats.

“Recent results have not been up to the standard I expect, we will be looking to put things right at Soham and I fully expect us to be stronger and produce more in front of the goal,” Morsley said.

“Phil Kelly’s sending off is a blow, but one we can overcome with the lads we have available in the squad.”

Currently AFC Sudbury sit in tenth place in the league but a couple of good results can see them knocking on the door for the play-offs and this weekend at Soham and next weekend at home to Dereham Town represent a good opportunity to grab some valuable points.

Meanwhile AFC Sudbury Reserves are at home tomorrow afternoon and face Leiston Reserves.

That’s sure to be another excellent match after their great comeback match last weekend beating Haverhill Borough 2-1, with plenty of young talent on both sides likely to be on view.
