Question of the Week
Do you support Cleethorpes Town?
By: Richard Hubbert
AFTER over a weekâ€™s break, itâ€™s back to business in the league with the visit of Oxford to Blundell Park, a side that were relegated along with the Mariners from Division Two last season.
Oxford have had a pretty traumatic season so far - with three different managers at the Kassam Stadium. Ex-Portsmouth gaffer Graham Rix started in charge, but was moved upstairs, for youth coach Darren Patterson to take temporary charge. A big shock came last week, however, when former Argentinian international Ramon Diaz was installed as their new boss. Diaz won five titles with River Plate and certainly looks an impressive appointment.
Oxford are just below Town in the table, but were expected to challenge at the top of the table with the likes of Tommy Mooney (top) and former Â£3 million striker Lee Bradbury on the books for the Uâ€™s. Mooney has netted 6 times for Oxford this season, but might have been expecting more after banging in 19 for Swindon last term, who were a league above the Uâ€™s. Also in the Oxford squad is ex Coventry defender Barry Quinn, whilst Leo Roget is a defender with lower league experience with Brentford, Southend, Rushden, Stockport and Reading. One man to watch though is 18 year old Craig Davies who made his first start for the team last weekend against Cambridge, and scored.
Prediction - A 2-0 win for the Mariners!
