Free-scoring Chi City get their RUR Cup defence underway

Free-scoring Chichester City have goals in their eyes as they look to take their table-topping league form into the cup.


Miles Rutherford’s side have been lethal in recent weeks, scoring 14 goals in their last three matches.


Ten of those have come in the past week.


First, Chi defeated Peacehaven & Telscombe 6-1 with Ellis Martin, Rob Hutchings, Matt Axell (2), David Herbert and Joao Andrade getting the goals.


They followed that up on Tuesday with a 4-2 win at home to Loxwood as Andrade, Herbert (2) and Sam Ndluv scored.


Those six points extended City’s lead at the top of the SCFL Premier where they have won six of their first seven matches.


Next up for Rutherford’s side is a trip to Crawley-based Oakwood tomorrow in the RUR Cup (3pm).


Having won the competition last season, Chi will be keen to avoid any potential slip-ups against their SCFL Division One opponents.


With Oakwood struggling in the league below, on paper it appears as though City will be able to keep up their fine form and secure a comfortable win.
