We welcome Truro City to Wiltshire this Saturday afternoon and with both sides in the hunt for promotion, it promises to be another game you won’t want to miss!
With a depleted side Marine lost 4-0 at Bolitho Park earlier in the season, but despite that result, it was only a mad five minutes that ultimately cost Lee Spalding’s men on the night, along with some clinical finishing from Tyler Harvey and Andrew Neal who secured a brace apiece.
While league positions remain similar, it’s Marine who currently edge the opposition in the current form charts and with a run of eight league games without defeat, our visitors suffered a rare 3-0 defeat at Poole Town earlier this week which followed a surprise 1-1 home draw against Hartley Wintney last Saturday.
Those results have left the White Tigers two points from top spot, having played two games more than the current leaders, Weston-super-Mare and in much need of the points as we head towards the run-in.
Marine leading goalscorer: Harry Williams / 26 league goals
Truro City leading goalscorer: Tyler Harvey / 21 league goals
