AFC Sudbury will be out for revenge when they host Enfield Town at the MEL Group Stadium on Saturday (3pm) – in the first of two games between the sides in the space of three days, writes Russell Claydon.
After The Yellows lost 5-1 at home to the fifth-placed side last season, they will be keen to turn the humiliation on their opponents, who they then face again in the Ryman League Alan Boon Cup third round on Monday night at their new Queen Elizabeth Stadium.
And Sudbury manager Chris Tracey, whose side drew 1-1 at Leiston on Tuesday night, to make it 10 points out of 12 in their last four league matches, has asserted his belief it is only a matter of time before they give someone a hiding.
“Against Leiston we made some good chances and maybe we lack a bit of confidence in front of goal at the moment and that is all,” said Tracey. “It is not going to be long before someone does get a bit of a thrashing.
“In the second half we took them to pieces.”
Despite AFC’s domination at Leiston, who were reduced to 10 men midway through the second half, it took a stoppage-time Michael Shinn strike to earn a point.
Steve Adams (hamstring) and Robbie Martin (ankle’knee) will both miss Saturday’s game, while recently re-signed midfielder Rhys Darg is still getting back to match fitness after five weeks without any football before a late cameo at Leiston.
