This Saturday sees Weston welcome Bishops Stortford to The Woodspring Stadium. With the visitors sitting bottom of the table and Weston fighting to maintain distance from the relegation battle as the season end continues to fast approach.
Following their 1-1 draw away to fellow relegation candidates Gosport last weekend, the Seagulls will be looking to put a smile back on their fans’ faces this Saturday by recording a win over Stortford.
Head Coach Scott Bartlett looked forward to the tie, “It’s another big game and those are the type that big players relish. We would have beaten Gosport if it wasn’t for two poor decisions that ruled out two goals in the second half. We can’t do anything about a situation that has passed but we can do everything possible to make sure we get three points on Saturday.”
The Blues last win came on 4th March away to St. Albans, and in their last five games, they have conceded 17 goals, with eight of those coming in an 8-0 loss to title challengers Ebbsfleet on Tuesday March 21st.
Last time these sides met was back in November where Stortford recorded their first home league win of the campaign in a 2-1 defeat for Weston. Michael Richens and Femi Akinwande both scored in the space of two first-half minutes, before Brad Ash lobbed the keeper on the 77th minute mark to reduce the deficit.
