Match Preview – Coventry United

THE FACTS

Midland Football League
Premier Division
Coventry United v Tividale FC
Saturday 14th December 2019
Kick off at 3:00pm

Well as we get into the busy Christmas period the games will be coming thick and fast and so a few matches into the legs of the lads will be important and with the bad weather forecasts for this weekend a competitive game on a 3G pitch is as good as anything.

As we are now into the run up to Christmas and also two games a week, the unavailability, suspensions and injuries are also beginning to kick in (more in squad news).

With our hosts hitting the top of the league last weekend. They will be determined stay at the summit and they know a win in this fixture will guarantee them that


THE HISTORY

A few weeks ago we fought out an entertaining 1-1 draw. Lee Smith looked to have won it for Tividale when he put Tividale ahead with 3 minutes to go. But the visitors were awarded a penalty deep into injury time and although keeper Louis Conner parried the original Jake Holt spot kick he was helpless when Holt was first to the rebound and lashed the ball home.

Our previous clashes was in the 016-2017 season. It was Coventry’s first season in the Premier and it coincided with our last and they did a comfortable double over us. Banging us 5-1 at their former home at Sphinx Drive. Robert Prinzel’s penalty gave United a half time lead. Craig Steven’s 30 yard effort drew Tividale level at the start of the 2nd period but another penalty this time from Chris Cox put the home side back in front. Further goals from Pierre Moudime, Simeon Townsend and Josh O’Grady rounded off the scoring.

The reverse fixture at The Beeches saw Muziwandile Nduna and aTommy Glasscoe penalty seal the points for United

Match Preview – Wolverhampton Wanderers

THE FACTS

Birmingham Senior Cup
Round Two
Tividale FC v Wolverhampton Wanderers FC
Wednesday 18th December 2019
Kick off at 7:45pm

Weather permitting this should be one of the biggest games in our recent history. We have played West Brom a couple of times and Walsall once in the past, but never come up against the team in old gold and black and this is a game we know that apart from members of the committee, a lot of our members, supporters and fans are looking forward to.

The Wolves squad will we expect be a mixture of Under 23’s and younger, so if you are expecting an appearance from Nuno and his first team you may will be disappointed but as with all Premiership Academy clubs you will get a chance to see some of their stars of the future. Who can forget the now much sought afte Kyle Edward’s stunning display for WBA here at The Beeches in their 2-1 win 4 years ago.

 


THE HISTORY

As stated previously this will be our first meeting in our recent history

Rushall Olympic 3-1 Tividale

It has been a tough few weeks for the lad’s with us not being able to get even one game a fortnight in. So on the back of that, this performance against a very good step 3 should put us in good stead.

Tividale Gatecrashed

Midland Football League
Premier Division
Saturday 23rd November 2019
Highgate 3-1 Tividale

This was Tividale’s first game since the 4-1 win against FC Stratford in the League Cup on Bonfire Night and it showed as we put on a performance that can be summed up as below par. But the management team were not too disappointed as the obvious lack of match sharpness against a side that had played twice in the last 7 days is something that hopefully will remedy itself in the weeks to come.
