League Two Table
Question of the Week
Do you support Cleethorpes Town?
By: Richard Hubbert
TOWN welcome Rushden and Diamonds to Blundell Park for the very first time, but at a time when the Mariners are staring a second successive relegation in the face. Anything less than a win for Town would surely seal their place in the Third Division next season.
Some may think that Town are down, but when you look at the league table, it shows we still have a chance. We meet the only team who are in worse form than ourselves. Therefore a defeat would surely send us down, though a win could see us out of the drop zone. The fans need to get behind the players, but the players need to deliver more than ever this season.
Last Time Out
Town met Rushden and Diamonds for the first time both clubs history back in November, where down went down 3-1 after leading for a long spell in the match. An Iain Anderson goal in the first half saw Town take the lead, until two goals from Onandi Lowe and another from Ritchie Hanlon secured all three points for the Diamonds. However, Town so very nearly snatched a draw. Jason Crowe missed a one on one opportunity, whilst skipper John McDermott struck the crossbar, just moments before Hanlonâ€™s last minute goals sealed the points.
