Match Introduction:

Bridlington Town host Albion Sports in a mid-table clash on Saturday the 28th.

With only three points separating the teams it looks to be a close game.

Bridlington Town have 2 games in hand over their opposition, so we’ll look at the stats and form of the teams in our Head To Head.

Head To Head:


Let’s look at both team’s league form:

  • Brid Town:
    • WDWDD
  • Albion Sports:
    • LLLWL

Goal Difference:

Brid Town have scored 26 and conceded just 20 in their 14 games so far this season. Meaning just under 2 goals scored per game.

Albion Sports have scored 30 and conceded 30 in 16 games. Again just under 2 goals scored per game.

The difference between the teams is in their ability to defend. With Brid Town’s latest signing, veteran goalkeeper Phil Dobson, manager Curtis Woodhouse is looking to get a few more clean sheets on the books.

Albion Sports’ record so far this season shows a weaker defence away from home, with -3 goal difference away from home so far. Bridlington Town will be looking to Brett Agnew to exploit this and bag more goals to add to his ever-growing tally.

Bridlington Town go into this match as favourites, but only if their defence can prevent giving away cheap goals, as has not been the case in recent matches.

Albion Sports:

Albion Sports’ fans are making the 152 mile round trip for this match!

Last season’s 11th place finishers come to this match after a 4-2 loss to Bottesford Town away. They will be looking to get back into form after a string of poor results (LLLWL (league)).

Matchday Programme:

This week’s matchday programme will be a bumper issue and still for just £1.50!

The programme will contain a retrospective of recently retired Bridlington Town legend Craig Hogg.
