Dunstable Town v Aylesbury FC
Southern League Division One Central
Aylesbury travel the short distance over to Creasey Park on Saturday where they face Dunstable Town with both sides looking for three crucial points to lift them away from the lower echelons of the Southern League Division One Central table. Aylesbury still seek their first win of the season, but Town sit just three points and four places above their guests in what is already looking a fiercely competitive league after the summer reshuffle of the non-league pyramid, shown by the top five clubs in the division having lost just one game between them in a collective twenty-one games.
This week Sports Shots caught up with Moles defender Derek Feyi to ask how life has been since he re-joined earlier in the season:
I’ve enjoyed it, its so different to last season and the mood around the club is optimistic. Add that to the fact that the management are hungry to do well and are working hard to implement all their idea’s
Having been at Aylesbury last term, was it an easy decision to go back?
Yes it was quite easy, for me it’s all about playing football at the moment so when the opportunity came I was more than happy to commit. Also with the type of fans here, the support has been great
After the league reshuffle in the summer, how difficult a division is it?
The level of competition has definitely increased with the likes of teams from in and around the midlands. I don’t think it’s a bad thing and rather improves the quality of step four football. It will make escaping from the division even more impressive!
How far away does Derek feel the first win is for the club?
I believe it’s very close, in football sometimes luck goes against you & that has been the case for us in the last few weeks, but the quality is there in the group so I believe our first three points will come sooner rather than later
We asked how tough the trip to Dunstable will be:
No game in this league will be easy, we’ll be going there focused and confident in our jobs, especially knowing that three points at this stage of the season can move you up three of four positions in the league table
Does Derek follow any pre match superstitions?
Not really any superstitions, I just usually like to spend a couple of minutes to myself before the kick-off and pray
Have any sides impressed the defender yet?
I’ll be honest and say I haven’t really been concerned with other teams as it is still so early days in the campaign
Finally, where does Derek believe Aylesbury can finish in the division?
April is a long way off yet, ask me again after December and I’ll have an answer for you then. But for now we have a strong squad that is building & taking each game as it comes.
I’d like to thank Sports Shots for this opportunity & keep up the great work!
