The Form Team
January 22, 2015
Who are the team in form in the Vanarama Conference Premier at the moment?
We are two thirds way through the season now and the thoughts of many supporters are beginning to turn towards the likely scenarios at the end of the season. A great deal of attention has been given to the pursuit of Barnet by Bristol Rovers.
Many supporters aware of the Luton Town chase of Cambridge United last season have been busily looking up the table and may not have noticed a fast approaching speed merchant on a veritable turbo-charge up the table.
Who are that team that were struggling near the bottom of the league with 7 points after 11 matches?
Who are that team who had no clean sheets in their first 11 league fixtures?
Who are that team that lost 8 of their first 11 league matches this season?
Who? It is the team that have achieved remarkable results in their last 19 league matches.
PLAYED-19, WON-11, DREW-6, LOST-2, TOTAL POINTS-39.
SCORED – 42, CONCEDED – 17, GOAL DIFFERENCE +25.
During these 19 league games they have managed to secure 9 clean sheets.
They have scored 2 or more goals in each of their last 9 league matches.
Over the last 19 matches they are unbeaten at home and have lost just 2 matches away by the odd goal.
Last night’s 2-0 victory over The Red Dragons follows on from their weekend 6-1 win against The Darts.
This speed merchant is remorselessly moving forward and they are a real threat to all those above them.
Newcomers to this league, they were promoted via the play-offs from 5th in the Skrill South league last season.
The Whites from the Crabble are chasing everyone above them and will need to be carefully watched.
