After last weekend's narrow 2-1 defeat of Berkshire Dons, The Goats make the trip across Reading to take on bottom side Reading Kites. This will be the first meeting of the clubs this season with the reverse fixture scheduled for the final game in May. Kites have only managed a solitary point so far but that did come quite recently in a 1-1 draw with GC United, who beat Caversham 2-1 only 2 weeks ago, in mid-February. Since then they have lost the last two quite heavily, 7-1 at Wayback and 10-0 at home to Westwood. The Goats could climb as high as seventh with a win. The big question is, can Euan Barker score for the fourth game running?

Caversham United Women
Despite leading twice through goals from Freya Jenkins and Caitlin Levy, Caversham were eventually held to a 2-2 draw at bottom side Mortimer last weekend. This Sunday they take on second from bottom Stonesfield who went down 4-0 at home to Caversham's Cup Final conquerors Penn & Tylers Green, last week. The sides met on the opening day of the season, a game that Stonesfield won 3-2 (Goats Beaten By WOW Factor). However, this was their last victory until February 6th when they had the first of a run of three wins on the bounce, ended last weekend by Penn.
