On Tuesday evening United moved up to second in the table (with 11 points) after a 3-0 win at the Pilot Field against Three Bridges. A game which carried on the ‘three’ theme with the referee thrice producing a red card, one for the hosts and two for the visitors.

United remain unbeaten for the season and their six-game form guide is now DDWWWW, scoring 15 goals and conceding four.
Nine games in and Louis Rogers and the back-four picked up their sixth clean-sheet of the season! Indeed, the ‘U’s are yet to concede a goal in the opening 45 minutes of any game.
Sevenoaks Town sit fifth in the table with nine points having won two and drawn three in their opening five games. Both wins coming at their Bourne Stadium.
Their six-game form guide is LDWDDL which includes a 1-3 FA Cup defeat away to Corinthian who are currently top of the Southern Counties East League Premier Division, and also an FA Trophy 0-1 reverse away to Bracknell Town who are second in the Isthmian South Central league. They’ve scored six goals and conceded nine in those games.
The teams met twice last season in two enthralling games. Early October in the league at the Pilot Field, United won 3-1 but left it very late, Ryan Worrall scoring a stunner in the 87th minute before Daniel Ajakaiye wrapped it up.
The reverse fixture in January saw Sevenoaks ahead with two excellent goals and less than ten minutes remaining. Enter Kenny Pogue to pull a goal back and with time up, Sevenoaks conceded a penalty for handball. With the last kick of the game, in the 98th minute, Ben Pope powered home to rescue a point.
Both of last season’s games were closely fought and highly competitive with the result up in the air until the final whistle. It will be a surprise if Saturday doesn’t follow the same pattern.
Saturday 24th October, 3pm kick off at The Bourne Stadium (Mill Lane, Sevenoaks, Kent, TN14 5BX).
The clubhouse will be open from 1pm and the gates will open at 2pm.
Admission is by pre-purchased ticket only. Sevenoaks vs United tickets
