Asfordby FC face defining week against title rivals

Asfordby FC's can get their promotion hopes back on track as they prepare to meet a trio of fellow Senior League Division One title challengers next week.

Facing a punishing late-season schedule after losing several weeks of matches to rain and snow, Asfordby went down 4-3 at mid-table County Hall on Saturday.

Benjamin Bridger struck twice and Leighton Nicholson also got on the scoresheet, but two second-half goals condemned Asfordby to their first league defeat since August.
