Eastbourne Borough Team News

Eastbourne Borough is in National League South since 2011. For the larger part of the previous 11 seasons, they were a mid-table club but in the last two seasons, they finished in 3rd and 6th place, respectively. This season started with mixed results for Boro. Five wins and five defeats after 11 rounds. Currently, they are in 13th place with 16 points but only four points from the top 7 zone.

Eastbourne form is too inconstant. Three defeats, a win, a draw, another win, then defeat, win, defeat, and a win…

They are one of the best-attacking sides in the National League South with 24 goals scored. In the last three games, they scored nine goals and only three teams have a better attack than them. Eastbourne failed to score in only two games this season.

But, on the other hand, Boro has big problems with defence. Eastbourne is one of only a few teams in the first six tiers of English football that still doesn’t have a clean sheet this season. They conceded 19 goals and only five teams conceded more.

Braintree Town Team News

Since its relegation from the National League in 2019, Braintree was in the relegation fight in the previous three seasons. But this season things are changed. After 12 rounds, Braintree is in 7th place on the table with 20 points and six wins. Last season they won the sixth game in March and this season they already have six wins in October.

Braintree is also in a very mixed form with two wins, a draw, and two defeats in the last five games. They collect 2/3 of their points at home, where they still don’t have a defeat.

Braintree is also a good attacking team this season and they scored 21 goals. Their attack is sixth-best in the division and they failed to score in only one game this season and it was against the league leader Ebbsfleet away from home. Which isn’t that bad. At the same time, they have problems in defence. They conceded 17 goals and they kept only three clean sheets this season (one away from home).


Since 2016 they produce some incredible games which ended with 7-0, 5-0, 4-0 twice, 6-0, 3-2, 2-3… Six of the last seven games ended with over 3.5 goals with an average of 4.57 goals per game.

Eastbourne Borough vs. Braintree Prediction

This is 13th vs. 7th in the National League South. Two teams with mixed results in recent games and too inconstant forms. We will not place a bet on a full-time score but we will go for goals here.

As you see in the article above, these two teams are very good attacking sides but with a lot of defensive problems. Their H2H is amazing and suggests that we can expect one unbelievable on Saturday afternoon in East Sussex.
