SSMFLD2; Grendon looking to clean up in Milton Keynes

Saturday 17th March 2018

Clean Slate v Grendon Rangers

South Midlands Division Two

Downs Barn Pavilion

K.O. 3.00pm

Grendon Rangers face the trip to Milton Keynes on Saturday to face Clean Slate, the side they shared a goalless stalemate with last week-end. A disappointing result against a side that have struggled this season, only two wins all season and both away, therefore a trip to the pavilion on Saturday will give Grendon hope of collecting some more points, after they themselves have collected four out of the last six points available.

Ahead of the game Sports Shots spoke with Rangers stalwart Stuart Leonard & asked for his thoughts on last week’s game:

Although we weren’t at our best against Clean Slate, we were disappointed to only come away with a draw, having had two goals disallowed after being judged to be offside by their linesman. We were struggling for fit players, so an injection of fresh legs in the second half would have really helped, but we didn’t apply ourselves as well as we could & they still looked dangerous on the break. We take the point and move on and take heart from back to back clean sheets and four points from the last six. Our defensive record as a whole this season has improved, which has helped us massively

And moving on to this week’s game:

So, this week we face Clean Slate again, and another opportunity for three points. Despite being bottom of the league table they have some good players and we need to be aware of that. But with players coming back into the squad to make us stronger, we are looking forward to the challenge. We have Matt Ginger struggling with an ankle injury, but we welcome back Ricky Brown who makes a massive difference for us in the middle

And rounding up Stuart looked at the club and season in general:

It’s been a tough season for the club in terms of management changes, comings & goings affect everyone, but we have all pulled together and we can still achieve our best ever points total in this league, so that remains our aim. The mood at the club is positive as always, we are indebted to our fantastic committee for all their hard work behind the scenes. May I on behalf of everyone at the club send our thoughts & best wishes to our long-standing club secretary Pete Busby on the very sad passing of his mother recently. I would also like to thank Sports Shots for their continued support

Sports Shots would like to thank Stuart for his time this week
