This Saturday, Weston welcome St Albans City to the Woodspring Stadium in their third league game of the season, with the hosts looking for their first three points of the campaign.
Weston have been boosted by the return of skilful winger Tristan Plummer, and Marc McGregor will be hopeful that Gethyn Hill is back to full fitness after injuring himself in the latter stages of the pre-season friendly against Cheltenham Town. After the first two games, Weston have one point to their name, a 1 – 1 draw against Truro City on Tuesday night.
St Albans City haven’t got off to the worst start, on three points from their first six available points. On the opening day, the Saints beat Hungerford Town 3 – 2 however lost to relegated side Woking 2 – 1 on Tuesday night to leave them 10th after the opening two games. With a strong strike force in Ralston Gabriel, Sam Merson and co, Weston’s defence could be in for a tough time on Saturday afternoon.
Last time the Seagulls and the Saints met was back in March, when two late goals from the visitors at the Woodspring downed the Seagulls 0 – 2. The last time Weston beat the Saints was in November 2015, when Brad Ash scored his first senior hat-trick at the Woodspring to win the game for Weston, as well as Scott Wilson adding a late fourth in a 4 – 1 win.
