Swifts face a potential home tie against From Town if they can overcome a strong Met Police side at the Aspen Waite Arena tomorrow night. After 3 away ties this season Swifts were due for a potential home draw but Jody Brown and his team will sense that this tie is far from over against Bostik Premier Division opponents who took Swifts right to the wire at Imber Court on Saturday, with Jack Cawley’s 90th minute equaliser meaning they lived to fight another day.
The home side looked every inch the favourites in the opening 20 minutes of the game as Swifts had to work hard to keep their strong and athletic hosts at bay.
Swifts’ Bostik League North match at Essex rivals Canvey Island has been postponed now following problems with the floodlights at their Park Lane stadium. These were identified yesterday and unfortunately the repairs cannot be carried out in time for tonight’s fixture.
Swifts survived a tough test in this game at the impressive new Parkside stadium of their Essex hosts on Saturday and showed just how much they have improved since their last visit to Aveley.
