Nemanja Jankovic looks on as his shot finds its way into the net to equalise in our previous meeting at Villiers Park.

Brook Street face Kessler’s Eleven at Villiers Park tomorrow in a match that could prove pivotal in the title race. Defeat would almost certainly spell the end of one side’s title challenge, so with so much at stake, it is not anticipated to be a “classic”.

With the top three sides meeting each other in the final three weeks the title race could potentially still have a lot of twists and turns to take as Marcus Lövman pointed out this afternoon.

“Carbrain are three points clear with three to play and you’d expect them to pick up a win tomorrow against EK Tuggers”, he said. “That makes the result of our game with Kessler’s all the more important, as if there is a loser, you’d have to say their title challenge was over”.

He continued, “A draw wouldn’t be the end of the world, but with both teams still to face Carbrain, both would have to take maximum points in their final two games, to be in with a chance”.

“We lost badly the last time we played at Kessler’s although we played for almost an hour with ten men, so I don’t think we can read a lot into that”, he claimed, “but if we keep our shape, I see no reason why we can’t hit them on the break and get the win we’re looking for tomorrow”.

For tomorrow’s game, Brook Street have a clean bill of health, but Kessler’s are still missing wing-back Hanso Hamers.

The match kicks off at 1630 BST tomorrow afternoon.
