The Peacocks’ hectic finale to the Vanarama National League campaign continues when they host Slough Town tomorrow evening (11th April), ko 7.45pm.

This will be the fifth attempt to play the fixture after the previous four were wiped out due to the weather but currently there should hopefully be no similar issues for tomorrow’s game with sections of the pitch having been covered since this morning. There will be a precautionary inspection at 9.00am though to confirm.

Yesterday evening’s long trek to Braintree saw Town gain another valuable point in their quest to escape the relegation zone but now all eyes will be on maximising home advantage to secure a much needed victory. Dartford’s defeat to Worthing last night helped Taunton’s cause whilst Eastbourne Borough’s draw with Truro City this evening means a win for the Peacocks tomorrow will see them climb out of the bottom four.

Tomorrow’s visitors lie in 11th position and could still mathematically gain a last gasp place in the play-offs if they win their remaining three games and results elsewhere go their way but whatever transpires over the next ten days it can be regarded as a successful season for the Rebels, with a respectable league finish coupled with a run to the Emirates FA Cup 1st Round. Their results however have been indifferent since the beginning of March when they were leading Bath City 4-2 before the game was abandoned, the National League ruling today that the result stands. Seven games have followed without a win consisting of five draws and two defeats to Havant & Waterlooville and Truro City so Town will hope to extend that winless sequence by securing their first win in nine league outings.

The Peacocks name an unchanged squad from Braintree with the addition of Bristol City loanee Ben Acey who missed the trip to Essex. Head of Football Rob Dray acknowledges there is still much to do, saying:” We have dug deep and secured two great results on the road against teams in the play-off during the past week but now we have to make sure we remain totally focused and maintain those standards at home. Slough will present a difficult test, but the squad have been brilliant and will be ready. We also need the Taunton public to come out in their numbers to support us as that will be massive in helping us over the line.”
