Weston make a return to Southern League Premier South action at The Optima, as they take on Poole Town this Saturday, 19th November. The game kicks off at 3pm.
This is the second time Weston and Poole have faced each other this season. On a hot August afternoon on the South Coast earlier in the campaign, The Seagulls won by three goals to one. The Dolphins had taken a very early lead in that game through Marcus Daws, but Weston stormed back with goals from Marlon Jackson, Keiran Thomas and Dayle Grubb to grab all three points at the Tatnam Ground.
This was Weston’s first away league win of the season, and in The Seagulls’ last away victory, the prolific Jackson and Grubb were again amongst the goals in the 3-2 victory at Merthyr last Saturday.
In Poole’s last game last weekend, they lost 2-1 at Harrow Borough and, agonisingly, conceded a goal in second half injury-time. Wes Fogden had equalised for Poole but Harrow struck right at the end to deny Tommy Killick’s side a share of the spoils.
It promises to be an intriguing clash here at The Optima, as the team in second host the team in fourth.
