It's now been noticed that Dean Bennett seems to have gone AWOL for no apparent reason. He has now failed to make the bench for the last two games but at the same time there has been no news regarding his absence from official quarters. Is he injured? has he been paid off? no-one seems to know.
Borough have had quite a good start to their campaign and look like they'll be staying up, unlike their near neighbours Lewes. Sitting just below mid-table in seventeenth place they have had a mixed set of results with three 1-0 wins in a row during August. During this month they have only picked up two points so look vulnerable to facing another defeat.
It's not known what injuries they have yet but it's interesting looking at their squad below. They seem to have a lot of Crabbs down in Eastbourne. Must be something to do with being beside the seaside.
I'm feeling positive for this game and I think we're going to inflict yet another September defeat on Eastbourne.
