MATCH PREVIEW: Larkhall Athletic (A)

Manor Farm will make the short trip across to Bath this Saturday as they try to sleigh Larkhall Athletic in their final game before Christmas, and Jack Davies is back to preview all of the action.

Farm were a defender’s sliding challenge away from taking all three points in the west country cracker against Melksham last week, but will still be buoyed by the point and performance as they aim for a festive three at Plain Ham. In the season opener, these two drew 2-2 thanks to an Owen Brain brace and the striker will be keen to get back amongst the goals. This fixture always entertains, and we hope yule be able to make it.

Larkhall will be in noel mood to make it easy for Farm, with the two sides sat dead next to each other in the table. The Bath side are in need of a win after a tough winter, including a recent defeat to Bideford. They are skippered by former Farm defender Sam Boulton and have plenty of attacking quality in Archie Ferris and Max Williams.

There’s snow way you want to miss this one. Merry Christmas, Farmy Army!
