Wembley host mid-table side Harefield United in the A404 derby, looking to build on last week’s 3-1 win against North Greenford. A win could see The Lions move up to 6th in the standings, just nine points off the top.

Wembley currently sits 7th in the table after 14 games. Their home form is something to be proud of, boasting seven wins from nine. They have only won away once this season, showing how vital Vale Farm is to the club. 

The hosts are still yet to draw a game this season with eight wins and six losses from their 14 league games. Despite that unwelcome record, they have managed to get over the line more times than not.

Vale Farm and Preston Park, the two home grounds of these sides, are separated by just a 30-minute drive down the A404. This is Harefield United’s first season in the Cherry Red Records Combined Counties Premier Division North, due to playing in the Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division last season.

Wembley have played an extra game, compared to their opponents and find themselves seven points better off. Harefield’s away form is fairly impressive with five wins and a draw from their nine games on the road in all competitions.

Devante Jones will be hoping he can add to his hat-trick last time out, with another 5-star performance for The Lions. All three of his goals were created and scored by himself, so will maybe be looking for some extra support this time around. His three league goals last week, saw him move to second in the club’s top goalscorer charts, one behind Joshua Blaize-Carr. 

Harefield finished in 11th last season and they currently find themselves continuing where they left off in their new league. Despite losing 16 of their 38 league games last season, they had a positive goal difference, which proves that they can create and score goals, but Wembley will be looking to discover where the leaky defence lies. 

This season, The Hares come into the game with back-to-back victories in both the league and FA Vase, so will be hoping to add a third to their list. The danger threat for Wembley is the front three that United poses. Trey Pender-Brown, Richard Pacquette and Harry Laflin have got a combined total of 31 goals between them in all competitions. Pender-Brown is the top goalscorer with 12, whilst Laflin has nine in ten appearances. 

Wembley will know that this is a tougher test than last Saturday but will believe that they can get over the line to claim another three points. Goalkeeper Charlie Wealands will also hope to claim his first clean sheet in over a month to add to last week’s penalty save. 

The contest will most likely be a fiery North-West London derby on Saturday, with Ian Bates’ side hoping to continue their push for promotion into the 8th tier of the English pyramid. #COYLions
