Preview: Kings Langely (A)

Ahead of Poole’s second ever trip to Kings Langely, we take a look at all the stats and figures behind this fixture.

Currently, Poole hold the advantage head to head, recording two 3-0 wins during the 2018-19 season.

Away in Hertfordshire, Jez Bedford opened the scoring after just six minutes, but Dolphins had to wait until the latter stages for goals from Steve Devlin and Sam Griffin to seal the game off.

It was a similar story behind the identical scoreline in the match at the Black Gold, with Marvin Brooks ninth minute opener boosted by two second half goals, this time courtesy of Corby Moore and James Constable.

Despite the large disparity between the two sides during matches, it could not have been closer in the league, with King’s Langely finishing just one point behind Poole, who secured that year’s final play off spot.

One of the more northern most based sides in the Southern Premier League South, King’s Langely spent the last two curtailed seasons in the Southern League’s northern division, the Southern League Premier Central.

Thanks to that sideways movement, and the fact that Kings Langley pretty much played most of their football in the Hertfordshire County League, those two matches remain the only fixtures between the sides in history.

This season Kings Langely currently sit winless at the foot of the table, with just one point from seven games.

Lang failed to score in any of their opening four fixtures, halting that run with a draw away at Chesham.

Whilst they managed to dispatch 8th tier Romford in the FA Cup 1st Qualifying Round, Southern League Premier Central outfit Leiston knocked them out after a replay in the 2nd Qualifying round.
