Rover banking on holiday performance to ease pressure

Tuffley Rovers will continue their battle to avoid relegation from the Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier Division on Monday, when they host another team in a similar position onĀ Easter Monday.

Chipping Sodbury Town will make the journey to Glevum Park sitting one point behind Neil Mustoe’s side in the table, as both sides go into their final four games of the season. Bradford Town, who host Westfields, sit one point further back, so Monday’s football promises to be pivotal in the direction the end of the 2023/24 season will take.

Rovers will have their destiny in their own hands if they can record a victory over Sodbury but know that they face a real challenge to survive if they can’t secure all three points, with tough games against Brimscombe & Thrupp and Corsham Town to come, before a final day visit to Chipping Sodbury on 22 April.

Kieran Alder remains on the injury list ahead of the Bank Holiday game at Glevum Park, but he is likely to be the only absentee for such a crucial game, with Ashley Davies set to return after his own injury lay-off which will be a huge boost for the Rovers squad.

The game will kick-off at 3pm on Monday, sponsored by Foxmoor Fire & Security.
