Sidbury head for a meeting with Newtown on Saturday (December 13) looking for a win that could push them into a top three berth in the Fresha League top flight table.

Last Saturday United were involved in a tremendous tussle with Elmore.

A Ben Farrington penalty put them ahead, but the Eagles leveled things up with 15 minutes to go.

In a high-tempo ending to the encounter both sides might have won it!

The home side blazed over from just five yards whilst twice, in the final minute, Adam Connett, had shots cleared off the Elmore line.

After the trip to Newtown United host Chard Town Reserves the Saturday after (December 20) and then close their 2014 year with a December 27 trip to Beer Albion.

The top half of the Fresha table read:
