Preview: Central v Hindley Juniors

Manchester Central aim to progress through to the quarter finals of the Murray Trophy as they face Hindley Juniors at The Manchester College on Saturday (KO 14:00).

It could be third time lucky for Manchester Central who have seen their clash with Hindley Juniors postponed twice already at their home ground in Wigan, with the game now taking place at The Manchester College.

Hindley Juniors currently sit bottom of the Manchester League Division Two picking up zero points from their seven fixtures.

Hindley Juniors suffered a 6-1 defeat in their previous cup game against Chadderton Reserves, whereas Central took part in a 2-2 score draw away at Atherton LR Development.

Central currently sit third with seven points but a win will take them top of Group C and through to the quarter finals.

Hindley’s cup form has matched their league form as they sit bottom of Group C with 0 points.

Central are unbeaten in their last six in all competitions, so will fancy their chances especially against lower league opposition.

As well as losing their last six, Hindley Juniors have only scored seven goals whilst conceding 37, while Central have found no problem finding the back of the net recently, so goals should be expected when the two teams finally meet.

Tom Jackson will be Hindley Juniors danger man and will be looking to add to his four goals from eight appearances on Saturday.

Central’s match winner may well be Cory Knight who’s scored 13 goals in 19 appearances most recently netting two hat-tricks against Hollinwood and Boothstown in the league.
