A crucial weekend is in store for the Peacocks as the Evo-Stik League season enters its final week of fixtures. Town are on the road tomorrow (20th April) with a trip to play Hendon, the first of two games over the Easter weekend which will go a long way, if not all the way, in determining the outcome of the Southern Premier South title and the positions for the Play-Offs.

Town’s win over Kings Langley last weekend lifted them back up to second spot in the table after defeats for Metropolitan Police and leaders Weymouth. There is however still a five point gap between the Terras and the Peacocks, meaning that the Dorset club will become champions tomorrow if they win at home to Chesham and Town fail to claim three points in North London. Anything other than a win against Hendon could also jeopardise the Peacocks’ hopes of finishing in a spot to guarantee home advantage in the Play-Offs with both the Police and Salisbury just one win away from overtaking.

It is therefore shaping up to be an intriguing afternoon but all Town can do is concentrate on securing victory at Silver Jubilee Park against a side who left the Viridor Stadium with a point back in August following a dramatic 3-3 draw, the Peacocks fighting back from 3-1 down to draw level with an injury time penalty from Matt Wright. At that early stage of the season Hendon were among the front runners but have fallen away as the months have gone by and now occupy 17th spot after experiencing an inconsistent campaign.

The Peacocks squad remains the same as that on duty last weekend, still missing Ben Adelsbury who is away but with the addition of Luke Manley from Bridgwater and Taunton College who has featured for the Peacocks in two Somerset Premier Cup ties this season. Head of Football Rob Dray said:” We have two big tests coming up over the Easter weekend and a big journey tomorrow. It will be a totally different game on their 3G pitch but we realise we have to keep our side of the bargain to maintain the pressure on Weymouth.”

Matt Wright comes to Town’s rescue to earn a point at the Viridor Stadium last time the two sides met.
