Tomorrow evening, Weston take on St Albans City in a rearranged clash at Clarence Park.
The gap to safety is now seven points, and the Seagulls need to make their game in hand count if they are to pull off the great escape and secure National League South status for next season.
After Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Hungerford, Weston will hope to have Jason Pope back after illness, while Gethyn Hill pulled out of Saturday’s warm up with an injury. Alex Bray and Eli Phipps both left the field early on Saturday with injuries.
St Albans are currently 10th in the National League South and are eight points off of breaking into the playoffs at the business end of the season. After three consecutive draws against Wealdstone, Truro and Welling, all 2 – 2 draws, Ian Allinson’s side returned to winning ways at the weekend with a 1 – 0 victory over Dulwich Hamlet.
These sides met in August, in a game where missed chances cost Weston three points. Early goals from George Nurse and Jarrad Welch put the Seagulls two to the good early on, but Zane Banton and Ralston Gabriel cancelled the Seagulls’ lead out before half-time. In the second half, Phipps hit the crossbar from six yards out and had a point-blank header saved by Dean Snedker, with Banton scoring 18 minutes from time to wrap up the Saints’ comeback.
The game kicks off at Clarence Park at 19:45. Prices for admission are as follows: £15 adults, £10 concessions, £5 Oaklands and Herts Uni students, £10 for other students, £5 for U16s, U12s admitted for free when accompanied by an adult. A family ticket costs £25 (2 adults and 2 children).
