Prime time for Teddington

Teddington, leaders and semi-finalists, remain on course for the league and cup double but make no bones about the fact that their No 1 priority is to take their first National League title.

For the weekend's double header they welcome back the striker Peter Gibbons after injury, but will be without Tyrone Moore in midfield today against Canterbury; they will be at full strength for tomorrow's match against fourth-placed Guildford.

Conceding that last week's quarter final 1-0 cup win against Southgate was no great advert for the game, Teddington's manager, Neil Campling, commented: "Don't expect us to speculate unless we have to. We play to our strengths - solid at the back, solid in midfield but with Peter Gibbons back we may do a little more this weekend than rely on penalty corners."

Although Canterbury have upset several leading teams this season and Guildford are improving all the time, with three dangerous front runners supported by Ian Jennings, one of the best passers in the game, the expected two wins for Teddington this weekend could go a long way towards realising their first ambition.

Meanwhile, a point for Slough away at Cannock against First Personnel Sutton Coldfield tomorrow will give them the Women's Premier League title for the fourth time in its six-year history.
