Last time out

Our last game was against Tottenham on Sunday afternoon. Goals in the game came from George McEachran, Thierno Ballo and George Nunn while Harvey Vale’s header has since been recognised as an own-goal. The win sent us up to second in the table at the time.

The opposition

Manchester United are ninth in the table on 28 points. We last met before Christmas and it was a 6-1 win at Kingsmeadow as the Blues run riot that day. Marcel Lewis (2), Jude Soonsup-Bell, Tino Anjorin (2) and Charlie Brown were on the scoresheet and the win left us in pole position over the festive period.
