The Peacocks are down to the last three Southern League games of a thrilling campaign – win them all and they claim the Premier South title! However that will be easier said than done starting with the visit of Yate Town to the Cygnet Health Care Stadium tomorrow evening (12th April), ko 7.45pm.

The weekend victory at Metropolitan Police ensured Town will be participating in at least the Play-Offs at the end of the season but they will want to avoid having to go through that potential trauma by securing the one automatic promotion place to the National League South. A win against the Bluebells tomorrow will lift the Peacocks above current leaders Hayes & Yeading and three points clear at the top of the table with equal games played. The importance of a positive result then cannot be underestimated as the last two weeks of the season boil up into a nail-biting finale.

Yate come into the match knowing they need to win to have any chance of claiming the final play-off spot after their hopes diminished at the weekend with a 4-0 defeat at Hayes. The Bluebells currently sit in 8th place, six points adrift of 5th position but with two games in hand. Their recent form is rather inconsistent, with five wins, five defeats and two draws from their last dozen games but will no doubt take confidence from their two most recent visits to the Cygnet which have produced 4-1 and 4-0 victories in 2017 and 2019 respectively.

It’s the same again for the Peacocks who name the same squad from Saturday’s terrific win. Head of Football Rob Dray and assistant Matt Villis both return to the touchline for tomorrow’s game after being away for several days. The Town boss commented before his flight home: “It’s another huge game with Yate still having aspirations to get in the play-offs so that makes it even more difficult. But it’s in our hands and from when we started back in August with two weeks to go now that’s all you can ask. We’ve had everything thrown at us this year yet still pull results out of the bag. We really want the fans to come out in force tomorrow night, I know they were absolutely superb up at Met Police, so they can help us get over the line in another massive game.”
