The Hawks will play their first league game in three weeks when they visit Hemel Hempstead Town in The National League South.


Paul Doswell’s side played their first game since January 19th in their penalty shootout loss to Notts County on Saturday in the FA Trophy. However, they haven’t played for points since playing Bath City at Twerton Park on January 19th. 


Their opposition in the Tudors are looking for what would be a rare league double over the Hawks, their last being in 2016. And interestingly enough, you’d need to go back five years to when the last home win in a fixture between these two, when Hemel ran out 2-0 winners at Vauxhall Road five years ago. The last three matches have all been won by the away side, with goals from Sam Magri and Danny Kedwell securing a 2-1 win on our previous visit to Vauxhall Road. 


It’s a contest which could very well be one for the neutral. The Tudors’ last three games has seen a combined 15 goals scored, although all have come in defeat – whilst the Hawks have only been involved in the solitary 0-0 draw at home to Slough Town in December. 


Lee Bircham was the man charged with steadying the ship in Hertfordshire following the shock departure of Sammy Moore at the end of last season. They currently lay 16th in the division, but showed in the reverse fixture that on their night, they are a match for anyone in the league. 


The game will take place on a 3G pitch at Vauxhall Road in what can only be described as baltic conditions, with temperatures as low as -3 forecast at the venue tomorrow night. 


Tomorrow’s game will be broadcast by the home club, with full details on how to watch becoming available in due course.
