From The Manager

Speaking ahead of the weekend Andy Drury said:

“After 3 games away from home we are looking forward to coming back home this week for a couple of big games. It’s a really tough week, Carshalton, Hornchurch and Billericay but we want to rise to the occasion, we want to pick up as many points as we can and continue our good start to the year.”


Carshalton took all 3 points when the sides met in South London earlier in the season with a 3-1 win.

The sides played out a goalless draw in this fixture last season on Good Friday. The game was delayed for an hour during the 1st half for an injury to Invicta goalkeeper Patrick Ohman.

The Robins are unbeaten in their last 4 visits to Cheriton Road, taking 2 wins and 2 draws. Invicta last won this fixture back in 2016 when both sides were still in the Isthmian South Division.

The Opposition

Carshalton find themselves in a decent run of form, taking 10 points from their last 4 matches, scoring 14 goals including a 6-0 win at Haringey Borough and a 4-1 win at home to Kingstonian, with league leaders Hornchurch the only side to take points off them in that time.

The Robins strengthened their squad last week with the signing of former Invicta man Ibrahim Olutade from Walton & Horsham. He made his debut as a 64th minute substitute in their win over Hastings United.

The currently sit 8th with 38 points from 25 games, 6 points off the payoffs.
