It’s a journey to Buckinghamshire tomorrow (22nd January) for the Peacocks as they seek to secure their 12th consecutive game unbeaten when they take on Beaconsfield Town in the Southern League, ko 3.00pm.

Eleven of those games have come in the League, with Town having won their four most recent matches while scoring 14 goals in the process. Confidence in the camp is therefore good as they travel eastwards looking to secure their fourth double of the campaign following a 7-1 drubbing of the Rams at the Cygnet Health Care Stadium in October. A Toby Holmes hat trick plus further strikes from Gethyn Hill, Ross Staley, Conor Hartley and an own goal steered the Peacocks to a resounding victory, but they will face an altogether different prospect tomorrow.

The Rams lie in 13th place with 10 wins this season from 28 games. They were forced to play all their fixtures away from home until October due to a new 3G pitch being laid at Holloways Park and it is their home form that has lifted them up to mid-table, having suffered only two defeats in 11 League games. In fact they have won four of their five most recent home outings with the other match ending in a 2-2 draw with promotion contenders Metropolitan Police, meaning the Peacocks will need to be at their best to gain some reward from tomorrow’s trip.

Jake Wannell is still missing from the squad with a hand injury while Ioan Richards and Jared Lewington, who has now served his two game suspension, face fitness tests. Toby Holmes and Gethyn Hill who both missed the cup tie with Paulton Rovers due to illness return to the fold while Jay Foulston is also back after being rested on the bench in midweek. Head of Football Rob Dray is under no illusions about tomorrow’s task, saying:” This is our toughest game since our run started. A 3G pitch and away from home against a form side means it will be a difficult challenge so our intensity and ball retention are key as we aim to keep the run going.”
