Horsham (A) - 21st November 2023
By Josh Cole
After the loss on Saturday, we are straight back into the thick of it looking to bounce back away to this years’ FA Cup heroes Horsham for matchday #15 on Tuesday evening.
The loss last time out came at the hands of Wingate & Finchley where we lost 1-0 despite hitting the bar twice. You can read the full match report by clicking here.
OPPONENTS SEASON SO FAR:
Horsham are sat in 10th place on 19 points having only played 11 games due to their magnificent FA cup run which saw them take League One Barnsley to a replay in the first round proper. Horsham started the season with a loss to Hornchurch but then won three games in a row before they tasted defeat again, away to Whitehawk. They then bounced back straight away with a win and a draw but then lost to Wingate & Finchley away from home 2-0. Another two more wins and a loss to Hashtag United being their most recent result in the league has them sat in a very handy position with lots of games in hand on those above them.
