Much like the old saying about waiting ages for a bus and then two come along at once, the Peacocks renew rivalries with Dulwich Hamlet in the National League South tomorrow evening (22nd November), ko 7.45pm.
Saturday saw Town beat the London side 2-1 at the Cygnet Health Care Stadium in the Isuzu FA Trophy, the first ever occasion the clubs had met. Unfortunately for Hamlet, they have to make the same trip westwards again three days later for a fixture which had to be rescheduled from last month due to the Peacocks’ FA Cup tie at Yeovil. Only three points separate Town in 17th spot from 20th placed Dulwich who have gleaned 17 points from their 16 games played so far. Their three most recent outings in the League have seen them win 2-1 at St Albans City, one of two away victories for them this season, and then beat Hampton & Richmond Borough 3-2 at home before dipping to a 5-1 defeat at Havant & Waterlooville ten days ago.
It’s an important game then for both sides as they seek to secure points to help keep them at arms’ length from the relegation zone. The Peacocks have won their last two League matches at the Cygnet with victories over Tonbridge and Cheshunt so will hoping to keep that sequence going under the lights tomorrow when they will have Ollie Chamberlain back in the squad after he missed the first meeting on Saturday while striker Jared Lewington has finished his loan spell at Plymouth Parkway and is also back in contention.
