This Monday, Weston face a tough task against Bath City to get their first three points of the season, however the Seagulls currently enjoy good form against their Somerset counterparts.
After Weston’s draw to Oxford City on Saturday, the Seagulls currently sit bottom of the league table with two points from six games. Matt Bower has come in to provide added height and physicality, putting in an impressive showing on his debut, while McGregor will be hoping that the injury that forced in-form Jarrad Welch off against Oxford isn’t too serious. McGregor’s side will be boosted by the return of Jake Lee from suspension.
Bath have won three of their first six games in the National League South season, but lost 1 – 0 away to Chelmsford City on Saturday. If he features, target man Ryan Brunt’s tussle with Bower could be an on-field battle to watch out for. Former Hereford striker John Mills certainly knows where the net is, and Weston’s defence will need to be alert to keep him quiet, whereas former Seagulls wide man Ross Stearn will hope to drive his current team to the three points over his former side.
Last time the Seagulls travelled to Twerton Park was on Boxing Day last year. The first half was a tepid one, Dayle Grubb going close with a free-kick in his final game before departing for Forest Green Rovers. As the rain got heavier in the second half, Weston began to look more dangerous and a slick team move from inside their own half led to Gethyn Hill tapping in, before an own goal from Dan Ball after deflecting in Welch’s cross late on sealed the three points.
