Coggeshall Town – AFC Sudbury Match Prediction | 25-09-2019 14:45

Ashlee Jones was the only new starter in the starting line up for the home side, as he made his second debut for the club and took over the captains armband in the process. Other new signings, David Agboola and Tom Blackwell took their place on the substitutes bench whilst Toby Ajala missed out due to injury. After finishing last seasons league fixtures at home to Sudbury, the SeedGrowers welcomed them back to West Street for the opening game of the 2019/20 season.

It's been a difficult opening fewweeks for the Seasiders with 3 league defeats in addition to the FA Cup exit at AFC Sudbury. A 1-0 win in the league at Sudbury a fortnight ago was a welcome 3 points and keeps the side one place above the bottom two - Brentwood and Romford who are yet to register a point after 4 games.

In the sixty first minute and against the run of play, the visitors pulled a goal back. After a ball in to the box and some superb goal saving blocks from Pollard and Dexter Peter, the ball fell kindly to Striker, Tom Maycock and he struck a left footed effort across Goalkeeper, Jones and in to the bottom corner of the net.

The Seed Growers won this the opening match of the season at the Crops with some clinical finishing to give the league favourites an excellent start to the campaign, writes John Campany.

Another 3-1 home win, this time over league new-boys Cambridge City and Saturdays fine 2-0 win at Canvey Island means the home side will be in confident mood going into this Velocity Trophy tie. For Bury, it's a different picture entirely with the Blues sitting in 2nd place behind Maldon & Tiptree on 10 points from their opening 4 games. An opening day 3-1 win at home to Basildon was followed by a 1-1 draw at Witham. The only down side for the Blues so far has been their own exit from the FA Cup, Histon coming away from West Suffolk with a 2-1 victory to move into the First Qualifying Round.

McLeod took one touch, before the blasting the ball in to the roof of the net to give his side an early lead and their first goal of the season, with their first shot of the season. After an exchange of passes and a wicked ball in to the box, Sudbury failed to clear their lines as the ball fell kindly to Mehki McLeod. After three minutes, Coggeshall had a dream start to the season.

A smart pass from Lock found George Cocklin, who in turn fed Conor Hubble with an intelligent through ball. With the game drifting towards the final whistle, Peter and Pollard seemed strong in defence as Matt Lock was introduced in place of Ross Wall as Coggeshall looked to manage the game until the final whistle. The SeedGrowers continued to press high and were rewarded as they regained possession in high areas as Lock won the ball back just in side the Sudbury half. Hubble dribbled towards the Sudbury box, cut in side on to his right food and bent a curling effort in to the bottom corner past Walker, to seal all three points.

After a break of 5 minutes whilst Walker received treatment for a nasty cut above his eye, the game continued. Eventually, the match official stopped the game and received a man handling from defender, Adam Bailey-Dennis who was lucky to only receive a yellow card despite laying his hand on the Referee. Moments after the goal, Sudbury were fortunate to keep eleven men on the field as the visiting Goalkeeper, Paul Walker appealed for a head injury and didnt go down to the floor, the Referee allowed play to go on.
