EASTBOURNE Town go into their game against Alfold this afternoon having received an injury boost with news on Brad Pritchard.
The midfielder appears to have avoided a broken ankle in the derby win against Langney. The club called the initial diagnosis “as positive as it could be”, with ligament damage believed to be the extent of the problem.
The news should add to the high spirits at the Saffrons where Town will be looking to extend their winning streak to four.
Goals have been spread out during this run but top-scorer Temba Bright has gone two games without scoring.
In the second of three consecutive home-games, manager John Lambert will be hoping to push into the top three in the SCFL Premier.
Alford, making their longest away trip of the season, are in inconsistent form, having alternated wins and losses over their last five matches.
The team is in good goal-scoring form however, with eight apiece in league and cup already this season for Sam Lemon and Devon Fender.
Town ultras Pier Pressure threw their support behind Marcus Rashford’s anti-child poverty campaign yesterday, announcing they will be collecting for Eastbourne food bank at next week’s match.
Predicted Score 3-1
