After a great win last weekend against Truro we look forward to the remaining 4 games and in particular the two fixtures over the Easter weekend. Tomorrow we welcome Merthyr Town to Holloways Park before making the short trip to face Bracknell on Easter Monday.
Our focus is very much on Merthyr but we just wanted to mention Monday's opponents who have had a fantastic season under joint managers Jamie McClurg and Carl Withers, two guys that we know very well. They are suffering a little now for their success this season across 4 competitions as they face a really difficult run of games in April but we wish them well in their push for promotion, apart from Monday obviously!
Back to tomorrow and we approached Merthyr to suggest bringing that game forward by 24 hours to allow both sides extra recovery time before the Monday games and we were pleased that they agreed to this. With a small squad it should hopefully help to have an extra day to get over any "knocks" that we might pick up.
We welcome Luke Neville back to the squad for this weekend after he missed the Truro game but we lose goalkeeper Kie Plumley who injured his finger this week whilst training at Oxford United.
We are fortunate to have good back-up in Cairo Richards who has trained with us since he came to the club, played last weekend for Bedfont Sports, and is more than ready and capable to step in tomorrow.
We are without Kyel Reid for the weekend as he is away and have a couple of other issues caused by work commitments (Callum Webb tomorrow and Olly Sprague on Monday) but this provides opportunity for others and we have good options in the squad for both games.
Tomorrow's opponents are in good form having won 5 of their last 7 games, and we know they are a good footballing side who will provide a stern test but our lads are in confident form themselves and it should be a really good game with no real pressure now on either side.
It has been good to see the crowds increase over the last few home games and we hope to see a good turnout again for the game tomorrow!
