AFC Totton vs Bristol Manor Farm – 04/02/23, 3pm KO.
Manor Farm take a trip to high flying Totton, looking to build on a very successful week so far. Farm were sitting rock bottom before the weekend but two wins, including a famous away win at Tavistock on Wednesday, has seen them climb to safety and given the club a renewed sense of optimism. Totton missed out on a play off spot thanks to Farm last season and are no mood to pass up a chance this season.
The Hampshire club, managed by the son of World Cup winner, Alan Ball, haven’t lost domestically since August, a run of 15 unbeaten league matches. Two late goals were enough to give Totton the win in the reverse fixture but Farm have fond memories on this ground. Not least back in the spring where Owen Howe scored the winner on his return to Farm, and the striker has scored three stunning goals in his last two games.
