WESTON TAKE ON TONBRIDGE ANGELS IN NATIONAL LEAGUE SOUTH CLASH

Weston are back at the Optima Stadium this weekend as they take on Tonbridge Angels in a Vanarama National League South clash this Saturday, 27th January. The match kicks off at 3pm.

The Seagulls slipped to their first league defeat of 2024 after the 1-0 defeat at home to Bath City on Tuesday night, therefore the team will be looking to bounce back against the Angels, who are currently eleventh in the table ahead of the fixture here in BS24.

The Kent outfit also played in midweek and picked up a 2-1 victory at another side from the same county, Dover Athletic. Goals from Jordan Higgs and Francis Mampolo were enough for Jay Saunders’ team.

In his post-match interview, Saunders admitted that he was pleased with his side’s character after emerging victorious from difficult conditions in Dover, and bouncing back from last Saturday’s 1-0 home loss to Worthing.

Talking of 1-0 defeats at home, Tonbridge also lost by the same scoreline against Weston on The Seagulls’ first away day of the season back on August 13. Jordan Bastin scored the only goal with a coolly taken finish in the first-half, but it was the heroic defensive display from the Weston players, particularly in the latter stages of the second-half, that ensured Bastin’s goal would earn all three points.

Ir was evident on that occasion that Tonbridge possess good attacking threats that Weston will need to be wary of again, but Weston can certainly be confident of gaining a league double as The Seagulls enter a fairly hectic period with games coming thick and fast in the next month or so.
