Bath City v Chelmsford City preview
10:27am Friday 15th March 2013 in Local Sport
BOSS Glenn Pennyfather says it’s “game on” for Chelmsford City as they aim to recover quickly from Wednesday night’s dismal display at home by defeating Bath City on their travels this Saturday (3pm kick-off at Twerton Park).
The Clarets lost 4-1 against AFC Hornchurch at Melbourne Stadium in midweek, though they’re still in the top four of the Blue Square Bet South and three points from a notoriously difficult venue at Bath would be a huge boost. Pennyfather knows that the Urchins loss needs to be pushed to one said as soon as possible.
“We can’t afford too many more slip-ups like that,” he claimed. “We have to take it on the chin and move on again, because that’s the nature of football.
"Bath’s another day, and Saturday we’ll go again. It’s game on. We’re still in a good position for a team showing signs of inconsistency at the moment. A lot of sides are, but we’ve got to dig in now.”
Chelmsford are also at home to Farnborough on Monday, and Glenn continued: “There aren’t many opportunities in football to be successful - we’re in that position.
"There are a lot of people who’d like to swap places with us right now. The players have got to get their individual houses in order because we want to carry on the good work that we’ve done so far.”
The Clarets will be without wide man Anthony Cook and central midfielder David Rainford through suspension, but Kenny Clark is available again at centre-half after returning from his own ban.
Bath occupy 16th position in the table four points above the drop zone having played at least a game more than most of the teams below them.
They’ve lost their last three games as well, but two of their last six matches have been 3-0 victories.
