Towners Bid To Sting Hornets

It’s one of the most eagerly awaited fixtures of the season against a side that haven’t lost a single game away in the league so far in 2024.

Saturday’s sixth versus fifth clash with playoff rivals Horsham is nothing if not a mouth-watering affair as we bid to build on last Saturday’s win over Lewes.

In the corresponding fixture earlier in the season we gained a valuable point and as the business end of the season intensifies, so does the anticipation.

Our win over Lewes, allied to the Hornets’ home defeat  to Carshalton Athletic, saw us close the gap to a single point albeit having played a game more.

 But with three league games in a week, and Llantwit Major tucked in the middle, we are going to need all the resources we can muster for a guelling schedule as we bid for a third playoff place in seven years.

Although we have beaten Horsham on their last two visits, their away form, along with their FA Cup exploits, speaks for itself.

“We had a really tough challenge last week against a good side, I’m really pleased with the win when you look at the entire picture,” said Gavin Macpherson. “There were positives, we know we can play better and will strive to do so.”

“Horsham will be every bit as tough but we have the opportunity to build on last week. We will need another positive response from the players and a Copenhagen spirit from the supporters. We’ve had a really good working week in training but Horsham will certainly be tricky opponents.”
