HARLOW return to the Harlow Arena after their comprehensive 3-0 Boxing Day defeat to Enfield Town away from home. They have the chance to make amends when they host Leatherhead FC, a match being highly anticipated as Jimmy Bullard, a household name in football after a 15 year career, arrives with his team going for three points.
They will be buoyed by their recent surge in form, winning five out of the last seven matches, including a dramatic 2-1 Boxing Day win at home against Metropolitan Police, while Harlow are somewhat a team in contrasting form, losing four of their last six matches in all competitions.
However, with that been said, Harlow have turned the Harlow Arena into a fortress, winning eight of their ten games at home, and with Leatherhead’s away record of four wins from 12 matches on the road, losing seven, that should give Harlow an incentive and some renewed confidence in what promises to be an intriguing game.
With both teams playing attacking football, and both teams conceding 43 goals so far this season, goals will surely be on the agenda come Saturday afternoon, as both teams look to finish 2016 on a high, in what could potentially be a New Year’s Eve cracker.
Harlow go into this game three points and four places above their opponents in 11th place with 33 points and Leatherhead in 15th with 30 points respectively.
With games coming thick and fast throughout the Christmas and New Year period, changes for both sides could be made. Harlow could welcome back Khale Da Costa and Lawrence Yiga to the starting eleven after the pair were dropped to the bench for the game against Enfield, while for Leatherhead, Calum Davies is pushing for a start after impressing in the 2-1 home victory against Metropolitan Police when coming on.
