Basingstoke Town ready for Hayes and Yeading test
BASINGSTOKE Town’s busy end to the season starts with three games in five days, starting tonight with a trip to Woking to face Hayes and Yeading (kick-off 7.45pm).
This is quickly followed on Saturday with an away game at Tonbridge Angels (kick- off 3pm), before a home game with Chelmsford City on Tuesday night (kick-off 7.45pm).
Town will look build on Saturday’s 2-1 home victory over Dorchester and they will hope for a few points as they face three sides in the bottom five of the Conference South.
New striker Liam Enver-Marum made an immediate impact as he scored both goals and formed a lively partnership with another recent signing, Nicholas Bignall, in a brand new strikeforce.
“Saturday’s game looked to be heading the same way, but we scored a late winner which was good.”
Looking ahead to three quick games the Town boss added: “I think if we can keep winning it does not matter how many games we play as the players will want to keep playing.
“I think we have a good chance in all three games and Tonbridge is our longest trip left in the season so it will be nice to get this out of the way on Saturday.”
For tonight’s game against Hayes and Yeading, Bristow is forced into one change as midfielder Wes Daly is out suspended as he serves a one-game ban for a red card picked up last month in a 0-0 draw with Tonbridge Angels.
Striker Manny Williams could be back in the squad for the tonight’s trip if he suffers no reaction to his injury after Tuesday night’s training.
