Oadby Town V AFC Diamonds on 5th Jan 3.00ko This is a massive game that will see who has what it takes to push for promotion. What sort of crowd can we expect ? Will Diamonds fans travel? What do we think the score will be?
I think its a wide open league with 5/6 teams in with a chance of winning it.
Would have thought the crowd with the good support R & D have will be 500+.Score wise with Oadby at home would expect home win 3:1. R & D only have the league to go for now a loss on would be a major blow.Oadby are my tip for promotion. Have a feeling that with Silby & Bugbrooke in good form a lost may be the end of R & D promotion hopes for this season and I dare say would cause a major rethink for next season having said that a win blows it wide open.Must be the strongest Div 1 league for many a year.Would be very interesting to hear comments from R & D supporters.

This is our first season, having put together our team from scratch so anywhere near promotion has to be seen as a successful season. I see no major changes if we don't get promoted, just a chance to build even stronger for the following season. I think fans of other clubs have higher expectations than our own on the whole. We're looking forward to our visit and I expect us to take around 3 - 400 fans, & by then we should be back to a full strength squad, including new signing Brad Harris from Ar Tarn www.afcdiamonds.com/new-signing-announced
Well, this game is now set up to be a cracker with 2nd place up for grabs should we be able to pull off an upset & win in Oadby. We had 584 attendance for yesterday's game, so with that in mind I shouldn't be surprised if we take 400+ to this match. Is there much parking at the ground?
There is a industrial estate across the road from the ground really looking forward to eelcoming your support what should be a great day. Jersey budd is playing after the Game for any of you that want to stop
Fair play to Oadby (well John Stevenson) who took their chances in the second half, when the 7 or 8 we created in the first we didn't convert. Official attendance 512, but it looked a couple of hundred more to me. Stevenson's the best player I've seen this season so far.
