ICA Sports FC vs. Langtoft United FC
The Azzurri host the Langtoft United "Vikings" this Saturday, in the PDFL Premier Division.
The Vikings sit one place and three points below the Azzurri at 15th in the Prem table; with 13 points after 20 matches. They have won 4, drawn 1 and lost 15. They have played 9 matches on the road this season, losing 7, drawing once and registering a solitary win; against Ketton in August.
ICA - who have taken 16 points from their 20 league games this season - remain in 14th place following their draw with Leverington. An Azzurri win this weekend will extend the gap between them and Langtoft to 6 points, with a further gap of 12 points from bottom side Polonia.
These two sides have already met this season in a contentious October tie, when the Azzurri finished the game with 10 men and manager Frascogna in goal; following an injury to goalkeeper Stephens after all three substitutions had been made. Langtoft capitalised and won the match 3-2 on a day of awful weather matched only by the abysmal showing from ICA.

The ICA squad again face a situation of player unavailability, with team captain Pierre-Liverpool suffering a lower leg fracture during the last match against Leverington.

Goalkeeper Jason Andrews & attacker Eric Makate return to the fold, as does winger Vaidas Macianskis. Midfielders Nyathi and Woolford face a fitness test this evening.
