MATCH PREVIEW: Melksham Town vs BMF

Melksham Town vs Bristol Manor Farm – 07/04/23, 2pm KO.

Manor Farm will be hoping for a very ‘Good Friday’ as they make the short trip to Melksham this bank holiday, and Jack Davies is back to preview all the action.

The Farmers need a very productive weekend but will be happy with their away point at Frome last time out and have begun to look stronger on the road of late. Melksham are sitting pretty in the top half, despite three successive defeats and four games without a win. The home side will still harbour slim hopes of the final playoff slot but will know they’ll probably need to win all of their remaining games to do so. A huge Farm win on this ground last year was the catalyst of last season’s epic upturn in form and Lashenko’s men will be desperate to emulate that in hopes of survival.

We are running a Minibus to Melksham’s Oakfields Stadium on Good Friday. We will open for breakfast at 10:30am, followed by travel shortly afterwards. Seats are priced at £15 per person, and includes a FREE breakfast roll.
