Match Preview :- Mickleover FC - Saturday November 4th, 2017 (15:00:00)

On Saturday, Celtic are back in league action when we host Mickleover Sports. Mickleover are currently thirteenth on twenty-five points, exactly level with Barwell on points, goal difference and goals for. They are six places and five points ahead of Celtic. There will be a match centre and Twitter feed for the game.

Mickleover are slightly better away from home, with four wins, two draws and three losses away from home, and three wins, two draws and five losses. They are now unbeaten home and away for the last four games, with wins in their last two, beating Farsley 3-0 away and Whitby 2-1 at home. In their last five away matches, they have won two, lost two and drawn one. Barwell were the last team to beat them on the road, winning 2-1.

Their top scorers this season are Evan Garnett and Andrew Dales, both of whom have six goals. In total, they've found the net twenty-seven times at a rate of 1.4 goals per game, with twelve of the goals coming on the road at a rate of 1.3 goals per game. They have conceded a total of twenty-five times at a rate of 1.3 goals per game, with eight of them coming away from home at a rate of 0.9 goals per game, suggesting their away game plan is to stay tight and hit on the counter. They have kept three clean sheets on the road (at Buxton, Farsley and Witton), and failed to score only twice away at Matlock and Coalville.

In Mickleover's last match, the 2-1 home win over Whitby, they lined up as:
1. Lewis King
2. Jak Hickman
3. Jake Scott
4. John McGrath
5. Pablo Mills
6. Tom Burgin
7. Andy Dales
8. Clinton Morrison
9. Alex Morris
10. Evan Garnett
11. Jimmy Phillps

In Celtic's last match, the 5-1 win over Prescot Cables in the FA Trophy, Celtic lined up as:
1. Joe Slinn
2. Danny Moton
3. Lee Neville
4. Tom Brown
5. Luke Ashworth
6. Ross Killock
7. Theo Bailey-Jones
8. Oli Roberts
9. Liam Dickinson
10. Matty Wolfenden
11. Greg Wilkinson

Celtic's home form of late has been pretty good, seventh in the table from the start of the season and fourth over the last five games, however, Mickleover are solid away from home, and Lewis King will have a point to prove. A win would only lift Celtic one place, to twenty-three points, but we have games in hand over a lot of the teams above us.
