Worsbrough Bridge Athletic (A) Preview

By Martin Eastwood

Emley back on the road

AFC Emley are back on the road on Saturday, when they travel to Barnsley to take on high flying Worsbrough Bridge (3pm).
Emley's last 2 games have both been at home, and both ended in defeat, 0-5 to Handsworth in the county cup and a 0-2 reversal to Glasshoughton last Saturday, to leave Joe Howson's men in 10th place in the NCEL Division 1.
But Emley's last away game ended in a thumping 6-0 win at bottom side FC Bolsover, however, "The Briggers" are likely to prove a far tougher nut to crack.
Currently in 7th place, a probably unlikely thought at the start of the season for a team who have struggled around the bottom 4 in the last few seasons,manager Lee Morris has turned the fortunes around,although they have lost their last 4 games, but will still pose a huge threat to Emley's chances of breaking into the top half of the table.
The corresponding fixture last year ended 0-0, but it would be a surprise if that was to happen again, games between these two usually see plenty of goals, Worsbrough won 3-1 at Emley last season, but 2 season ago, Emley recorded wins of 5-0 and 6-0, so goals are pretty much guaranteed.

With it being a fairly local game, it would be good to see a good number of Emley supporters following the Pewits down the M1.
The address is;
Park Road, Worsbrough Bridge, Barnsley, S70 5LJ
Admission is £5 adults and £3 concessions
