Weston are back at the Optima Stadium as they take on Beaconsfield Town in the Southern League Premier South this Saturday, 14th January. The match kicks off at 3pm.
The Seagulls will be looking to claim their fifth league win in a row, against the side who were the last team to take points off Weston following The Rams’ 1-0 home win on November 26.
Elliott Buchanan scored the only goal that day at Holloways Park, and Buchanan was also on target in Beaconsfield’s last fixture last Saturday as he scored a brace in their impressive 5-2 home victory over Hayes & Yeading. Nathan Minhas also chipped in with a brace, with former Charlton and Bradford City winger Kyel Reid completing the scoring. Reid also had a spell at Preston North End and was a team-mate of Scott Laird.
While The Rams were scoring five of their own, Scott Bartlett’s Weston side were also doing the same in their 5-1 win at Harrow Borough. Laird scored a brace and Dayle Grubb, Sam Avery and Noah Coppin joined our assistant-manager on the scoresheet.
Beaconsfield are having a good season and are currently tenth in the Southern League Premier South, just four points off the play-offs. With both sides in good goalscoring form, it looks like an exciting match could well be in store.
