Midland Football League
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
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
