Match Preview:- Nuneaton Griff (H)

The Bears Are Back In Action This Saturday

After another week off thanks to no scheduled fixture, the Bears are back in MFL action this Saturday when we are at home to Nuneaton Griff (KO 3pm).

It is fair to say that this match is an absolutely crucial one for Nuneaton Griff in their battle to avoid relegation. Recent wins by fellow relegation contenders Littleton and Heath Hayes has heaped the pressure on the Heartlanders and the Griff will be going all out to secure the three points and a vital win at Coles Lane on Saturday. Nuneaton Griff have been boosted by the arrivals of Dave Stringer and Russell Dodds to the dugout and visit Paget in 19th position with 14 points from their 32 league matches so far and 5 points from safety with just four league games remaining.

The Bears come into the match on the back of some inconsistent form not helped by the stop-start nature of Paget’s fixtures since the turn of the year. Paget have failed to win a home game since the 3-0 victory over Stapenhill on December 8th and last time out lost 3-1 at home to a rejuvenated Littleton. Paget can take heart from a 6-0 victory on the road a week prior at Heath Hayes and will be looking to get a consistent run of positive results going as we head into the final month of the season, with a top 8 finish still a distinct possibility.
