UP NEXT: Cinderford Town F.C. (H)

This Saturday, Bristol Manor Farm will be looking to climb back into the play-off positions with a victory over Cinderford Town. Kicking-off at 3pm, here is all the match preview, ticket and travel information ahead of #Matchday 20.

Speaking to Official BMF TV after the Sholing defeat, Manager Lee Lashenko stated that “he couldn’t have been more proud of his player’s performance” despite leaving Hampshire empty handed. This weekend’s action sees Manor Farm face an entirely different animal in the form of Cinderford. In contrast to Sholing, the Foresters currently sit in 18th position with just two victories to their name. Our visitors endured a managerial departure in October, with the club mutually parting ways with Steve Cleal – paving the way for Alex Sykes to take the helm.

As for the Farm, a victory on Saturday could see Lashenko’s side nudge further up the table and into the play-offs which ‘must be the goal this season’.

“I couldn’t have been more impressed with the performance levels on Saturday. We left last week feeling disappointed, but we’re showing teams that we’re a good side. Teams will share the points this season, but there’s plenty of matches left for us to be in contention with the play-off positions which is where we want to be,” Lashenko said.
