Weston return home for a game under the lights as they take on Swindon Supermarine on Tuesday, September 27th. The game at the Optima Stadium kicks off at 7:45pm.
Supermarine make the relatively short journey to BS24 after Saturday’s 1-1 home draw against Beaconsfield Town. Brad Hooper had given Swindon the lead, but Aaron Minhas equalised for The Rams. Following that stalemate, Supermarine are third in the table.
As for Weston, they continued their sensational start to the season with a 1-0 win at Hayes after Dayle Grubb’s excellent finish early in the second half separated the sides.
In the two Southern League Premier South encounters last season, the home sides emerged victorious in the respective fixtures. At the Webbswood in December, Weston took an early lead through Marlon Jackson and led at half-time, before Swindon stormed back to claim a 2-1 win after goals from Harry Williams and Henry Spalding.
In the return fixture here in March, Grubb’s spectacular 90th minute free-kick sent the Weston fans home in an ecstatic mood after his late, late winner claimed a 1-0 victory. This vital win was even more impressive as Weston had to play the majority of the second half with only ten men after a red card was brandished to Josh Thomas.
Games between Weston and Swindon Supermarine have tended to be tight affairs in recent years, and a repeat of this is possible once more. While Supermarine are likely to be difficult opponents, The Seagulls will be looking for three more points to continue their wonderful form as they head into an extremely busy fixture schedule.
