PREVIEW: AFC Telford United (H)

access_time 3 years ago

Head Coach Justin Edinburgh oversaw his side record their fourth straight league victory after Tuesday night’s result at Aldershot Town.

Josh Coulson’s first-half double header was enough to see the O’s take the three points despite a late Scott Rendell penalty and Aldershot surge.

AFC Telford come into the game in decent form, they have won three of their last six games including a FA Trophy victory over National League side Solihulll Moors.

Last time out, The Bucks were on the end of a shock defeat against National League North strugglers FC United of Manchester. Ellis Deeney’s 90+3-minute penalty proved to be only a consolation.


Jordan Maguire-Drew will definitely miss this fixture, the youngster suffered a calf injury five minutes into our fixture against Aldershot Town and will be absent for around 4 weeks.

James Dayton made his return and played 10 minutes on Tuesday night, tomorrow’s fixture could see the winger get more playing time. Justin Edinburgh confirmed on Tuesday that forward Josh Koroma should be fit enough to be in contention for this match.

Jay Simpson missed out against Aldershot due to a minor hamstring strain and is likely to see this fixture come too soon as he recovers.


Tomorrow’s referee is David Rock, the Hertfordshire born official has taken charge of the O’s on four occasions this season. He oversaw our victories over Maidstone United, Braintree Town, Wrexham AFC (A) in the league and Dagenham & Redbridge. So far this season, Rock has handed out 47 yellow cards, two red cards and five penalties in 17 appearances.
