Faversham Town vs Three Bridges – Tuesday 17th November, 7.45pm kick-off (Shepherd Neame Stadium, Salters Lane, Faversham, Kent. Postcode: ME13 8ND).

Suspended duo to return with revenge on the cards

Revenge is expected to be on the cards at the Shepherd Neame Stadium, as Faversham Town look to avenge their 1-0 defeat at Three Bridges earlier this season, when they welcome them to the Shepherd Neame Stadium tomorrow (Tuesday) evening.

Defender John Lansdale scored the only goal of the game to seal Bridges home win over the visitors.

But, following the loss, Lilywhites manager Ray Turner hailed his team’s performance as ‘outstanding.’

He said: “I thought we were outstanding. We dominated the whole game.

“It was one of our best performances this season and I can’t ask much more of the players.

“They only had one shot on target but everything seems to be going against us.”

The defeat reflected a difficult run of results for Turner’s men, in which, they went eight matches without a win.

However, this time around, the hosts will be desperate to prove they have turned a corner following victories over Folkestone Invicta, Whyteleafe and Hastings United, despite falling to a 1-0 loss at Tonbridge Angels in the Kent Senior Cup in their last clash.

George Monger, 21, and Bourne, 29, both missed Town’s trip to the Longsmead Stadium last Tuesday through suspension but will be available for this match.

The Lilywhites will also look to close the four-point gap between themselves and their fifth-placed opponents, who beat Whitstable Town 3-1 on Saturday afternoon.

When the two outfits met at the Shepherd Neame Stadium last term, Faversham Town beat Three Bridges 3-0 to move back level on points with eventual champions Burgess Hill Town at the top of the Ryman South League Table through goals from Jack Harris, Sam Bewick and substitute Kieran Oliver, who all have since left the Kent club.
