I'd rather these two games were round the other way - Slough at home when we're on a high should (!) be a solid 3 points, and then we'd be ready for Eastbourne on the Saturday.
But this way round, I'm not so sure - one win does not a summer make, etc, etc.
Although I'm not convinced Eastbourne are quite as big a threat as others are making out. They have beaten Tonbridge at home, which is currently not looking that difficult, and only managed a draw at home against Oxford. Losing only 0-1 at Ricay seemed like quite a good 'result' at the time, but Ricay aren't exactly looking like the team we all feared 3 games in.
There's also the home 'expectation' jinx to take into account...
But, I am still optimistic about this one - we might need a bit of luck, but, with a fair wind and a decent ref, I think we'll do it. By 5pm Saturday, we could have NINE points in the bag!
I've still got the panic button handy though, just in case.
Nothing more than another of your tangential smokescreens.
It's simple if we play like we did in the first 25 minutes against Hungerford we will lose if we play like we did the rest of the game we will win. My predicton is an outlandish 4-0 win to the Stones in front of 1629 people and a squirrel
I'd take a win I haven't seen a Stone's home win in 3 seasons. Hope the curse is finally lifted Tuesday COYS
with that kind of record, can we all ask that you maybe give the game a swerve please
