Redbridge preview

Wingate & Finchley will be looking to put uneasy league form to the back of their mind on Tuesday night as they host Redbridge FC in the London Senior Cup Quarter Final. Keith Rowland will be looking for his first win as Wingate manager and, for a side that won the treble in 2011, where better to do so than a cup competition? Redbridge overcame Barking FC and Clapton FC in the first two rounds of the competition whilst the Blues beat Fisher FC 5-0 and Cockfosters 3-2 under Simon Lane to reach the last eight of the competition. The visitors come into this game off the back of two league defeats either side of the aforementioned 2-1 win over Clapton in this competition. AFC Sudbury visited Oakside and left with a 4-0 win whilst the Motormen lost 1-0 at Great Wakering Rovers the weekend before. Ricky Eatons side will be looking to escape from similar league woes, the Motormens last League win came on 5th December, at home to Waltham Abbey, who Wingate beat 4-3 in October. New Wingate signing Alex Addai will be looking to impress once again after his debut at the Abrahams on Saturday afternoon, scoring the solitary Wingate goal in a 3-1 defeat to Bognor Regis Town. The Blues will also be looking to sure up a slightly shaky defence, the last clean sheet coming on November 17th, at home to Leiston. Both teams League form is not what either set of fans would be upbeat about but a cup quarter final is always a great distraction and a great way to re-inject some confidence into a squad. The winner of this tie will face Hendon or Croydon at home in the semi-final. Preview by Nikhil Saglani
