On Good Friday the Romans make the short trip to relegation-threatened Hungerford Town in the Vanarama National League South! Kick off – 3pm at Bulpit Lane.
City’s play-off credentials took a hit last weekend as St Albans produced a clinical display to down Jerry Gill’s men. Goals from Clovis Kamdjo, Sam Merson and Ben Wyatt earned Ian Allinson’s side their first ever victory at Twerton Park and condemned City to consecutive league defeats for the first time since August. Despite the defeat, The Romans remain in the play-offs with just three league games left to play and they’ll head to Berkshire knowing that a win will edge them closer to securing a play-off spot.
Hungerford Town have been flirting with relegation for most of the season and currently take up the final relegation spot on goal difference. Off-the-field issues have taken up most of the headlines in recent times with The Crusaders’ Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer all looking to stand down and the end of the season due to financial and workload issues. Talks of voluntary relegation were eventually dismissed and manager Ian Herring saw his side go on an impressive unbeaten run in the month of March. The Crusaders gave themselves a brief glimmer of hope coming into April but have since lost their last two games and will be looking for a quick turnaround in form.
With both sides desperate for all three points, it’s set up to be a thrilling encounter at Bulpit Lane! Get behind the City and enjoy the game!
