On Boxing Day, Weston travel to Cornwall, to Truro City for their final game of 2016 and for their first in a South-West derby double header, with Weston being in a good position to obtain six points over the festive period, with them meeting again at The Woodspring Stadium on New Years Day.
In the last outing, on the 17th December, Weston battled courageously to a 0-0 draw against playoff contenders Chelmsford City in a game where the Seagulls deserved to win when Brad Ash’s finish early on was controversially disallowed for offside.
The last six months for Truro, under former Tottenham Hotspur player Lee Hodges, has been a quiet one since Steve Tully departed in the summer. Truro currently lie 16th in the table on 24 points, with Weston having a game in hand following the festive fixtures, six points from the next two games could see Weston overtake Truro in the near future.
Last time Weston and Truro faced each other was at Truro’s Treyew Road back in April. Scott Wilson opened the scoring with an own goal putting Weston two to the good 14 minutes from time. Former Seagull Matt Jay headed home to put Truro back in the game however Jake Mawford calmly rolled home to seal all three points.
