At the same time only 3 points are available and we still have 57 to play for after today, so win, lose or draw this will not determine the rest of our season.

Good afternoon and welcome to today's league encounter against a very good Chippenham Town.

We come into the game off the back of 3 defeats in 2017, however, when you look at the games in isolation, we did not deserve to lose against Chesham, but got undone by a poor 90 seconds, we fully deserved defeat at St Ives where we were poor on the day, and then the defeat at Maidenhead where I thought our lads were a credit to the club, and if not for two decisions going against us, I think we go on to win against the best team in the league above, who had not been beaten at home all season.

Sometimes you can lose a game and come away very buoyant and that is definitely the case after Tuesday, as our lads stood up to the test, threw their bodies on the line and ultimately deserved more.

As has been seen we will be appealing Guy Hollis' red card, as from the video he was in control (granted it was a strong tackle) and it was certainly not two footed which the referee said at the time, hopefully, common sense will prevail and we will not lose Guy for 3 very important games.

Obviously with Chippenham riding high in the league, this game takes on a great significant, however, at the same time only 3 points are available and we still have 57 to play for after today, so win, lose or draw this will not determine the rest of our season.

Injury wise we are still without Warren Harris, and we welcome back Paul Stonehouse back to our squad who was unavailable on Tuesday night.
