Phoenix look for repeat show on derby day

First published in Sport by

Phoenix Hockey Club’s men are looking for a repeat showing when they face local rivals Witham this weekend.

The East League division three south east leaders will visit Phoenix’s Four Releet base (start 2.30pm) tomorrow looking to record their 11th win in a row.

But they will be only too aware that the last team that beat them were the side who are due to be their hosts on Saturday and Phoenix will draw confidence from that 4-3 victory at the start of November.

Head coach Carl Wright said: “Witham have put together a good spell of results and have scored 100 goals in the league now, but we are one of only two teams to have beaten them this year.

"We’ll have to have our heads on defensively, be hard to break down and work hard because that’s what we did in that previous game."
