Match Preview: Baffins vs Hythe & Dibden

Hythe & Dibden are the visitors to PO3 as Rovers take to the pitch for the first of three home matches in seven days on Tuesday night.

Danny Thompson’s side will head into Gameweek 26 in confident mood after a creditable point at AFC Stoneham — the first time the title-chasers have dropped points at their Complex home this campaign.


Duarte Martins opened the scoring for the hosts, before substitute Dillon North capitalised on a error from goalkeeper Callum Lee, to lob an effort home.


That result means that Baffins are currently on a four-match unbeaten run, and Rovers have won their last five matches in PO3.


Tuesday's visitors won’t have happy memories of their visit to PMC Stadium last term, as Baffins hit Hythe for six. Rudi Blankson, James Cowan, Oscar Johnston and Tommy Scutt were all on target for Baffins — but they’ve since departed the club.


The two clubs met during January at Hythe Garage Stadium, and Rovers took the lead after Kelvin Robinson’s acrobatic opener beat James Mayo. Despite that, Charlie Drury and Harrison Fay struck back for the hosts to ensure Hythe took the points.


Tuesday night’s visitors sit in 10th position in the standings, four points behind Baffins, and were thumped 5-0 on home turf against Hamble Club at the weekend.


You can watch Baffins take on Hythe & Dibden on Tuesday 28 February (7:45pm kick-off). Tickets are priced £6 adults and £4 concessions.


The £10 deal is available for this match, which includes entry, programme and a beer.
