Manor Farm travel to Aylesbury as their Fa Cup begins on the road! The hosts beat Longlevens in a thriller to earn the tie.
Aylesbury have been the team to watch so far this season if you want goals. They’ve shared 19 goals in just 4 games and constantly carry an attacking threat. Attacker Craig Stapleton has started the season in good form as have forwards Sam Wood and Abu Khan. Midfield creativity comes in the form of danger man Jamie Fulton.
Manor Farm will be buoyed by an improved performance in midweek and have a clean sheet to build on. Defender Steve Kingdon was excellent in that performance and will be looking for back-to-back hold outs. Forwards Marcus Day and Jake Gosling have done everything but score and it can’t be long until they blot their paper this season!
Aylesbury as mentioned, have lots of goals in them but also concede their fair share. They won their opening League and Cup games but have since lost two in a row, conceding 3 in both. Farm got their first point in midweek but have failed to score from open play in their opening two games. A solid cup performance and result could be the catalyst for an upturn in early league form.
