Tamworth looking for cutting edge in the final third

Thursday Aug 15, 2019

 Just one point from six possible has been collected by Tamworth in the Southern League Premier Division Central. It has been a rocky start to the season for co-managers Gary Smith and Andrew Danylyzsyn. The good news is, Tamworth can only get better. Non-league and Football League fans can get the best betting offers for UK ahead of this weekend’s football matches and wager on their favourite teams to win.

 Tamworth have a quick turnaround following their midweek 3-1 loss to Bromsgrove Sporting on Tuesday. On Saturday, the Lambs will play at home against Peterborough Sports. The newly-promoted club have recorded two draws in two matches this season.

 Peterborough Sports opened the campaign with a 1-1 draw against Rushall Olympic and followed it up with a 2-2 draw to Kings Langley. Tamworth should fancy their chances at home against the newly-promoted side. 

 Defensive let down

 Tamworth have been lacking in defence in the early stage of the season. The Lambs have conceded four goals in two games while scoring twice in 180 minutes of football. After two matches, Tamworth finds themselves in 17th place. But with the season just two matches old, there is a lot of football left to be played. The problem for Tamworth is they cannot make losing and conceding goals a regular occurrence. 

 During the offseason, Tamworth acquired 19-year-old defender Henri Wilder on a free transfer. Wilder joined the club after being released by Mansfield Town. Smith and Danylyzsyn will hope Wilder can come into his own and play as if he is far older than just 19. Wilder started for the Lambs against Bromsgrove Sporting and could get another start against Peterborough Sports at the weekend. 

 A missing man

 One player that has been missing early on this season for Tamworth has been Aaron Forde. The former Walsall midfielder suffered a freak injury that has him sidelined during the early part of the season. 

 Forde is expected to miss six weeks due to a wrist injury he sustained. According to Forde, the injury occurred when he was taking a shower. While reaching behind his back, Forde managed to rupture the tendons in his thumb and wrist.
 The injury was a freak accident and is now keeping him out of the team for several matches. Forde underwent surgery to have his wrist fixed and will undergo rehab for it. 

 Attack, attack, attack

 Tamworth average 1.0 goal per match after two games. Rhys Hoenes scored from the spot against Bromsgrove Sporting and Ryan Beswick struck a gorgeous 30-yard free-kick goal against St. Ives. The Lambs may have scored goals in both matches, but they are struggling to create from open play. It is an area that Smith and Danylyzsyn must address for the side to improve. 

 Last season, Tamworth finished with a 15W-13D-14L record. It is always good to finish with more wins than losses or draws. However, Tamworth must improve in the final third if they are to achieve that feat again this season.
 Forty football matches remain in the marathon season that is the Southern League Premier Division Central. Despite the large number of games left, Tamworth need to begin collecting points soon.
