MATCH PREVIEW: Westbury United (H)

Bristol Manor Farm host the White Horse Men of Westbury on Saturday afternoon looking to ‘bounce back’ from consecutive league defeats, writes Jack Davies.

Prior to the last couple of matches, Manor Farm had been on a decent run with goals aplenty. Fan favourite Ben Bament got his first goal since his return from injury last time out, and Farm were also happy to see top scorer Owen Brain return from suspension. The Portwaymen, however, will need to put a stop to the current flow of goals conceded of late, with seven of them coming in the last two games. Farm do have a break from league action coming after this game so will be hoping to end a tricky November in style.

Westbury ended last season in fine fashion as they achieved a mid-table finish but are languishing a little closer to the relegation zone than they’d have liked so far this campaign. Similarly to their hosts, United have scored plenty of goals of late but are finding it hard at the back. Six goals in their last three have only been good enough for a single point and they’ll also be keen to sure things up at the back. Young forward Harvey Flippance grabs the bulk of their goals and player manager Ricky Hulbert is still finding time to grab a few himself.
