Cray Wanderers Preview – Can Cray Wanderers take over at the top?

A six-match unbeaten run in recent times has not only helped Wednesday night’s hosts, Cray Wanderers, up into an early 4th place position in the Isthmian League Premier, but has also given the hosts a great chance to take over Aveley at the top of the division with all three points against Hastings United at Hayes Lane.

Cray Wanderers find themselves three points shy of the current league leaders, Aveley, but thanks to this six-match unbeaten run which includes victories over Canvey Island 1-0, Margate 1-0 and Folkestone Invicta 4-2, the latter being away from home, the hosts possess a better goal difference than Aveley and know a win here will be enough to send them to the summit.

Cray Wanderers were earlier dealt a 2-1 defeat away from home at Billericay Town on the opening day of the new Isthmian Premier League season but the hosts have since staged a solid recovery, especially on home soil at Hayes Lane where they still remain unbeaten with two wins and two draws under their belts.

Form and results at home also paint a bright bigger picture for Cray Wanderers who have lost just four out of their last 13 matches which also includes five wins and having scored 2 goals or more in six of these 13 home games, Cray Wanderers may just have too much firepower for their visitors on Wednesday night.

In the previous meeting at home against Hastings United, Cray Wanderers ran out 2-1 winners and the hosts will be confident that they can repeat this scoreline on Wednesday night as they look to make the most of home advantage in order to claim top spot in the league.

Hastings United Preview – Can Hastings win upcoming battle?

Hastings United also bring a promising unbeaten run of recent results into this Isthmian Premier League encounter away from home at Cray Wanderers having put together a three-match unbeaten run that includes wins against Brightlingsea Regent 4-1 and a 1-0 victory over Kingstonian, while also picking up a point in a 0-0 draw away from home at Lewes.

This improved run of results has also lifted Hastings United away from the early relegation places in the division and up into 14th place but it should be noted that both of their wins in the league to date were registered on home soil at their Pilot Field ground, while the visitors are still seeking their first away win of this new Isthmian League season.

The bigger picture also shows Hastings United’s struggle to put together any sort of positive sequence of results as well, as the visitors have managed to collect just three wins out of their last 13 matches overall, each of which were also recorded on home soil, along with being handed no fewer than seven defeats in the process.

Results away from home have yielded an even worse return for Hastings United as the Sussex outfit have claimed just three victories from their last 22 outings on the road and although this includes a 3-0 win at Cray Wanderers, this victory was way back in 2013, while 12 defeats suggest this could be another tough trip for Hastings.

In addition, Hastings United have failed to win any of their last seven league matches away from home and the visitors have also failed to hit the back of the net in six of these seven outings as well, so they look to have their work cut out if they’re to get a result at Hayes Lane on Wednesday night.
