FOOTBALL: Gee backing North Leigh in crunch battle

7:00am Friday 13th December 2013

Mark Gee believes North Leigh are capable of inflicting a first defeat in five games on Paulton Rovers when his side visit the Bristol-based team in Calor League Division 1 South & West tomorrow.

The Millers have two victories, two defeats and a draw in their last five matches.

But Gee said he is targeting a win over their promotion rivals.

“Obviously we don’t want to lose three points on our rivals, but we will look to win the game,” he said.

“We’ve had a couple of defeats recently and they’re in good form. But we’re more than capable of getting a result there.

“We never think of ourselves as underdogs for any game.”

Defender Andy Caton is available after suspension, but North Leigh are still without strikers Kieran Sanders (unavailable) and Aaron Woodley (torn hamstring).

North Leigh (v Paulton Rovers, away): from White, Hole, Organ, Turk, Gunn, Westlake, Else, Alexis, Osborne-Ricketts, McDonagh, Williams, Bowles, Walcott, Dobson, Caton.
