ZICO Asare is thrilled with Oxford City’s newfound consistency in defence.

David Oldfield’s side have conceded just once in their last five matches and drew 0-0 at Vanarama National League South leaders Dartford last weekend.

Asare made an excellent goalline clearance in Kent and has enjoyed City’s miserly performances, ahead of tomorrow’s visit of second-placed Dulwich Hamlet to Court Place Farm.

The defender said: “We’re a team that’s very hard to beat.

“That’s our fourth clean sheet in five games, so it means we’re very tough and resilient.”

City are fifth and will go above Dulwich with a win.

In Pitching In Southern League Premier Central, Banbury United will aim to maintain the pressure on leaders Coalville Town.

Andy Whing’s side are third, four points behind the table-toppers with three games in hand, and are at home to 17th-placed Lowestoft Town.

In Division 1 Central, Thame United host Welwyn Garden City boosted by a 3-0 win at Biggleswade in midweek.

Lynton Goss, David Pearce and Ryan Blake scored their goals.

Kidlington welcome Ware, 72 hours after losing 3-0 at Aylesbury United.

Second-placed North Leigh travel to Kempston Rovers, Didcot Town host Aylesbury and Wantage Town are at Barton Rovers.
