TOP FACES BOTTOM IN SOUTH-WEST CLASH

Tomorrow, Weston make the journey to Torquay United as top meets bottom in the seaside town.

Last time out in the league, Weston lost 0 – 1 to Chippenham thanks to a Nat Jarvis header just before the hour mark, and have lost the past two games in the league, despite going three games unbeaten in the National League South before that. However, the Seagulls now find themselves 10 points behind 19th-placed Gloucester, and have a steep mountain to climb to pull themselves out of trouble.

Torquay currently sit top of the tree, one point ahead of Woking, having won four of their last five games in the league as Gary Johnson’s men continue to build momentum. On Tuesday night, the Gulls left it late against relegation battlers East Thurrock United, requiring a 90th minute goal from Ruari Keating to steal the three points.

Last time the two sides met was back in October on a Tuesday night. Matt Bower scored a volley to break the deadlock in the first half, but backed by 1,000 away fans, Torquay equalised through Saikou Janneh in the second half. Opi Edwards fired in to put the visitors ahead, before Brad Ash netted a dramatic late equaliser in the 88th minute to get a point against their full-time opposition.
