Last time out UEL travelled to Imperial, where they narrowly lost 5-3 in a tense encounter. UEL could so easily have won at least one more game if they had one more player to play singles instead of being a player short.
Sean Wilson put in a stellar performance last time out and he will be looking to recreate that form to guide his team clear of relegation. Wilson remains unbeaten in his league games over his two years at UEL and is the catalyst for the team.
Joshua Teoh and George Geaves have struggled to pick up games this season but they were much improved last time out. Although this is the case, performances have improved in recent weeks and are looking up.
The pair were on the wrong side of a very close affair in the last game but lacked the confidence, but they couldn’t quite get over the line.
UEL should be encouraged by recent performances because if they can pick up a win then they will give their side a huge boost for the whole team.
The East Londoners have regularly struggled to field a full team has really been an issue this year as they will be on the backfoot straight away in each game.
This means that the side goes into the fixture with a two-game deficit which has been their downfall so often.
It is likely that this will be the case in this week’s game, but the side will be confident of winning as they are much improved. A good all-round performance is imperative no matter how many players are available to the team.
Queen Mary 3rd team currently lie in second but their hopes of winning the title are all but over. Imperial are a gigantic 11 points ahead at the top of the table and their lead looks unstoppable.
Queen Mary have nothing really to play for so UEL could capitalise on some complacency from the home side.
The teams are yet to meet in the league, so they will not have past encounters to refer to in preparation for this game.
With just four games left it is vital that UEL pick up points and that is sure to happen as the side grows in confidence and ability.
