City V St Albans City Match Preview

The Romans are back at Twerton Park on Saturday for the penultimate home game of the season! Two play-off hopefuls do battle in the Vanarama National League South as City take on St Albans on home soil. Kick off – 3pm!

Jerry Gill’s men travelled to Kent last weekend and saw their seven-match unbeaten run ended by Steve King’s Welling United. Danny Mills, who has been a thorn in The Romans’ side for many seasons, struck an 86th minute winner to secure a 2-1 win at Park View Road. Despite falling to defeat, City continue to sit in fifth position and the gaffer remained positive after the match.

This weekend St Albans City are the visitors to Twerton Park and they themselves look to feature in the play-offs at the end of the season. The Hertfordshire side currently sit in 10th position in the table but are just two points behind Wealdstone in seventh. Ian Allinson’s Saints have picked up three wins, five draws and two losses in their last ten games and will be high on confidence after beating a strong Chelmsford City outfit on Saturday. A brace from David Moyo and a sublime chip from Khale Da Costa earned St Albans all three points and they’ll be looking to replicate that performance when they travel to Twerton on Saturday.

The Romans have turned Twerton Park into a fortress over the past few months and are unbeaten in nine; a run which includes games over high-flying Torquay, Woking and Chelmsford. City fans have turned up in numbers during this superb run with the average attendance over the nine games being a magnificent 1350! We need that fantastic vocal support to continue on Saturday as we edge closer and closer to the end of the season so bring family and friends, get behind the boys and enjoy the game!
