TOP TEAMS TO COME TOGETHER AT WESTWOOD PARK

41

footballpitchgrassThe Island’s top two football teams go head to head tonight (Thursday) as Cowes Sports FC and Newport IW FC lock horns in the Wessex Premier league.

A tight game is in prospect as just one place and four points separate the sides, although Newport have two games in hand on their rivals.

Cowes will be keen to make amends for their 3-2 defeat in the reverse fixture in December and are on a good run of late, being unbeaten in their last five games. The ’Port lost 1-0 to high-flying Sholing last night (Tuesday) but won their previous two games.

The match, at Westwood Park, Cowes, kicks off at 19:45.
