Campion (A) Cup preview

By Martin Eastwood

Cup test for Emley

AFC Emley travel to Bradford for the second time this season to take on Campion, this time in a Northern Counties League up 3rd round tie on Halloween night (7.45pm)
Emley's last visit to Scotchman Road ended in a 2-0 defeat in August, Campion also won 3-2 at the Fantastic Media Welfare Ground 4 days later, so Emley will be hoping for 3rd time lucky!
It will be a tough test for Joe Howson's men, Campion are in scary form, despite defeats to Liversedge in the West Riding county cup and to Billingham Town in the FA Vase, Campion haven't tasted defeat in the league since Selby Town beat them in mid August, Indeed, that was one of only two defeats in the league for Campion, the other was early August against high flying Worsbrough Bridge, they are currently 2nd in the NCEL first division to Emley's 11th.
But Emley will be hoping their cup shyness comes out to play again in the Halloween night and they can put the frighteners on Campion.
Emley will hope to put their league form behind them- the Pewits haven't won for 3 games-and will want to experience a cup treat rather than a trick!
To follow the Pewits, the address is;
The Kay & Lane Insurance Stadium @ Manningham Mills Sports & Community Association
Scotchman Road, Bradford, BD9 5AT.
Admission is £5 and £3 concessions and kick off is 7.45.
