Midland Football League
Highgate United v Tividale
Saturday 23rd November 2019
Due to the awful weather for a lot of teams it will feel like month’s since they last played and for the other’s unless you have a 3G pitch they would have played in sporadic fashion. So for a lot of teams including us, these games coming up now will be like pre season fixtures.
It has been a mixed start for Highgate, starting the season by beating title contenders Romulus and Selston. But since then their form has dipped and with it has come a string of defeats. Including a 3-1 defeat at The Beeches. But at the turn of the month they handed form side Heather St John’s their first defeat of the season. So we are well aware that on their day they are capable of beating anyone
We have had some great games against Highgate. Who can forget Karl Edwards last minute headed winner in our MFL championship winning season. Or Harvey Walkers brilliant winning goal deep into injury time to complete a 3-2 FA Cup win after going 2-0 down after just 10 minutes.
All our games in recent years have been close affairs games with the prolific Lei Brown hitting the winner at Tythe Barn Lane in the 2016-2017 league campaign after Nathan Jones had cancelled out McCauley Manning’s opener.
While the game at The Beeches ended all square. First Orrin Pendley was first to react and turned the ball home when when a Marco Adaggio shot came back off the cross bar. But Dan Smith equalised just before half time. That man Manning then put Highgate back in front but Elliott Hartley levelled again and earned Tividale a share of the points.
In the game at Tividale a couple of month’s ago were we ran out 3-1 winners. The goals came from Dan Smith, Luke Carter and Brad Welding with that man Lei Brown replying for Highgate.
