Monk are back in league action as they host top of the table Casuals at the Lambourn Sports Club. Division 2 is very congested at the top of the table with just 2 points separating the top six clubs. Casuals lead the way with Monk down in sixth, as it stands. As any regular readers will know, this is the reverse fixture to the game that took place just over a month ago - Miracle Monks - where a depleted Monks squad dug out a superb 2-1 win. Goals from Maher Ali and Robbi hauled them back into the game after an Aaron Presley goal for Casuals had left them all shook up in the first half.

The Goats had a week off last week but are back at it this weekend. Currently in tenth spot, Caversham host second placed Westwood Wanderers who bring a 100% away record to Mapeldurham Rec. The Goats are themselves unbeaten in the league since mid-September but need to convert a recent run of three 1-1 draws into wins if they wish to climb the table. Westwood have hit a rich vein of scoring in recent weeks following their 6-0 win at Rose & Thistle with a crushing 9-0 win over bottom side Reading Kites last weekend. Quite incredibly, this is Caversham's first home league game of the season.

This weekend sees something of mid-table battle as The Goats take on Wargrave Women. Both sides have played six league games so far and both have won two. Wargrave have the slight upper-hand by means of a 4-4 draw at Penn & Tylers Green on the opening day which sees them head Caversham by a single point. The Goats come into the game on the back of a superb 7-1 demolition of Holyport in the Berks & Bucks Cup last weekend. Holly Swan's four goals in this game saw her leap up to joint second in the top scorer chart. Wargrave are looking to halt a run of three consecutive league defeats but also won away in the Cup last weekend, 3-1 at Wallingford Town.
