Hemel Hempstead Town welcome Redditch United to Vauxhall Road on Saturday, hoping to extend their rich run of form.

The Tudors go in to Saturday’s Calor League game on the back of an 11-game unbeaten run and currently lead the Premier Division.

Redditch are 20th in the league table, however they have picked up their only wins this season away from home.

In the lead up to Saturday’s game, Redditch lost 3-0 at Chippenham last weekend then in midweek they lost to Rugby Town on penalties in the Birmingham Senior Cup following a 2-2 draw.

Hemel and Redditch met for the first time in the 2011/12 season, with the Reds doing the double over the Tudors.

Last season, however, Hemel got their revenge. Dave Pearce and Matt Nolan scored two each in a 4-1 away win in October last year, then in December Pearce notched a hat-trick and Stephen O’Leary added one more in a 4-0 win at Vauxhall Road.

Saturday’s game gets under way at 3pm.
