We have now got more points than we have had in either of our previous 2 seasons with 16 games to go, and on paper we are still amongst the runners to potentially win a league, albeit a tough ask.

Good evening and welcome to Arbour Park for tonight’s game against Weymouth. It is a shame that both games home and away have been on Tuesday’s this season, as both sides have very good away followings, and to make the journeys on a Tuesday night is tough for both clubs.

Weymouth come to us in good form having beaten Basingstoke away 6-1 on Saturday, coupled with the 6-1 win at Kings Lynn mean we are under no illusions what a tough game this will be, for us on paper they have one of the best teams in this division, and had it not been for the amount of games they have drawn they would be up challenging for the title.

We come in off the back of a 1-0 home victory against Dunstable, it was not our greatest performance, however we did what we set out to achieve and got the 3 points, alongside another clean sheet which means 2 in the last 3.

As a side we just have to keep our heads in the run in, and try to win more than we lose, if we do that then we will not be far away, and with 9 of the 16 games coming up against teams in the bottom half, we have an outside chance of achieving something special still.

What we have to realise is that as club we have come a long way this season, we are playing football back in Slough in front of great support. We have now got more points than we have had in either of our previous 2 seasons with 16 games to go, and on paper we are still amongst the runners to potentially win a league, albeit a tough ask. So whatever happens between now and the end of the season, it will stand us in good stead for next season when phase 2 of Arbour Park will be completed.

In terms of squad news we welcome back Guy Hollis from suspension, and with Josh Jackman hoping to get the all clear this week, we should have a full quota to pick from.

Enjoy the game and get behind the lads.
