Weather permitting, we are ‘on the road’ again today, to the Testwood Stadium, home of AFC Totton. ‘The Stags’ are currently nicely placed at 8th in the table, and it’s another stiff test for us. The start of three away matches in succession, followed by Wimborne Town on 18th, and Paulton Rovers on Tuesday 21st.
It is hoped that Simon Gilbert and new signing Martin Stowell will be in the squad although Nick Peare is suspended – his first of a 3-game ban.
Our visit to ‘The Stags’ last season, in March 2017, saw us win 1-0, despite Tom Warren being sent off in the 77th minute for 2 yellows! Our goal came from Liam Monelle in the 66th minute.
The game between the sides in November 2016, at Cossham Street, ended with a 3-0 victory for us. Lewis Powell grabbed a brace and our third goal was an own goal from Stags’ keeper Steve Mowthorpe.
Totton’s Ian Oliver was sent off in the 71st minute for two cautions.
