FOOTBALL: Gee looks to lay down title marker

10:00am Tuesday 26th November 2013

North Leigh boss Mark Gee believes the outcome of tonight’s top-of-the-table clash at home to Cirencester Town in Calor League Division 1 South & West will prove a good guide to the title race.

The two sides are locked together with 12 wins and three defeats each, but Gee stressed that no trophies will be handed to the winners.

“It’s a bit early to call it a title decider,” he said. “It’s not going to determine who wins the league, but it’s a good indicator.”

Banbury United manager Edwin Stein says his players are starting to believe they can achieve success in the Premier Division as they prepare to visit Bideford.

The Puritans kept a third successive clean sheet in Saturday’s goalless draw against Poole Town.

And Stein said: “The boys are starting to believe in what we can achieve and things are looking very positive right now.”
