Home run continues, as Mustoe eyes home straight

Tuffley Rovers will play their ninth home game in their last eleven fixtures on Saturday, buoyed by seven points accumulated from the last four games, a run that has lifted them up to 16th place in the Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier Division table, nine points clear of the relegation places with eight games remaining.

The visitors this weekend are Hallen FC, who have suffered a wretched season, amassing just ten points from their 29 games, although they too have been on an improved run, with six of those points coming in the last ten games. They currently sit sixteen points adrift of their hosts – and at least fourteen points short of climbing out of the relegation zone – so the game promises to be pivotal in the fortunes of both teams as the end of the season is fast approaching.

Rovers Manager, Neil Mustoe, has improved his squad in recent weeks and has managed to retain the services of Bristol Rovers loanee Harvey Greenslade for the fixture, although he is likely to be recalled from his work experience agreement after the game, with a move to a higher level looming, in order to continue his development. Greenslade has netted three times since joining in early January and Rovers have taken seven points from the five games he has featured in. Mustoe will be hoping the 17 year old signs off with another excellent performance, at the end of the week where he was named as the Player of the Month for January 2022.

As ever, Rovers’ match-day programme is available online, with printed copies available via the turnstiles.
