Preview: St Margaretsbury vs Walthamstow

Walthamstow’s first away league game sees them travel to Stanstead Abbotts to take on St Margaretsbury on Tuesday. The kick off for this one is 7.45pm.

Despite being eliminated from 3 cup competitions this season, Walthamstow remain unbeaten in the league – having played 5 games – and will look to continue that against Tuesday’s opponents.

4 wins and 1 draw in the first five games means Walthamstow will take some beating this season with Ryan Maxwell’s men firming keep their eyes focused on the Essex Senior League title. With being a favourite to win that title, there was no doubt that Stow would take some beating but they’ve found it difficult in a few games this season. Routine wins have seen them beat Tower Hamlets, Ilford and Cockfosters whilst also beating a tough Stansted side and drawing with Hadley – the only team this season to really trouble Stow’s defence. The record for Walthamstow gets better and better each time. It’s 5 games played, 4 wins, 1 draw, 0 loses while scoring 14 and conceding 1.

Stow’s opponents and the home side sit in 12th in the league after 7 games with a record of winning 2, drawing 3 and losing 2 while scoring 14 and conceding 17. Wins for St Margaretsbury came against Southend Manor and Woodford Town while they’ve lost to Redbridge and Hashtag United and draw against Hoddesdon Town, Enfield and Stansted.

When these teams met last season, it was Walthamstow who walked away with the majority share of points following a 2-2 draw away and a 4-0 win at Wadham Lodge.
