Re: Important matches from now to the end of February

Ilkeston have a cup game against Quorn on Tuesday 12 Feb which breaks up a 3 week gap between the last match at Quorn on 2nd Feb and the crucial match against Sporting Khalsa on 23 Feb.

Sporting Khalsa have lost their last 3 matches so their confidence before the important games against Coventry Sphinx and Ilkeston may be dented.
26 Jan   lost at home to Long Eaton  0-2
02 Feb  lost away to Sholing  (FA Vase) 1-3
09 Feb  lost away at Shepshed  1-2
Khalsa have a match against Rushall Olympic on Tuesday 12th Feb. in the Walsall Senior Cup - Maybe another confidence denting defeat?

Walsall Wood had no match 2nd Feb so they arranged a friendly with Redditch United on Tuesday 5th Feb and lost 4-3.

Shepshed's 2-1 win against Sporting Khalsa on Saturday ended a run a six games without a win.

Westfields last league match was way back on 19th January when they won 6-0 at Boldmere St Michaels.They now have three matches in eight days.

Coventry Sphinx lost 4-0 at Long Eaton on 5th Jan. They then had two blank Saturdays which did them no favours because on 26th Jan they lost 2-3 at home to bottom club Wolverhampton Sporting. They're now in the middle of another two bank Saturdays before they meet Sporting Khalsa on Sat 16th Feb. Like Ilkeston they have a Cup game on the Tuesday 12th Feb. Their cup tie is against Division One side Chelmsley Town.

Re: Important matches from now to the end of February

On a famous night for Sporting Khalsa they beat Rushall Olympic 4-3 on penalties after drawing 1-1 to reach the Walsall Senior Cup semi final.   Khalsa deserved the win agaist a side two steps higher in the non league pyramid.
