MATCH PREVIEW: BMF vs Cinderford Town

Bristol Manor Farm vs Cinderford Town – 18/03/23, 3pm KO.

At The BS3 Services Stadium, Manor Farm will face Cinderford Town on Saturday in one of the biggest games of the season so far, and Jack Davies returns to preview the encounter.

The two sides are locked on exactly the same points in the table’s bottom three positions, and both will know a defeat will really damage their chances of avoiding the drop. Farm have only one win in eight but have picked up handy recent points against the likes of Sholing and Exmouth. Cinderford have just one win in 11, but it was that crucial away win against the only side below the pair – Slimbridge.

The Portwaymen host Lymington Town after Cinderford, and will feel that they’ll need to beat both to increase their chances of securing survival. Cinderford have a pretty daunting run-in so will eye this game as a real must-win.
