Saturday: First team at Frickley, CFC go to Southwell

By Neil McGowan

On Saturday Basford first team round off a hectic week with a visit to Frickley Athletic and Community travel to Southwell City (both 3.0).

Frickley will be the team’s fourth game in eight days as they move closer to the league title.

It is possible that the title could be won on Saturday, if our result at Frickley betters that achieved by Alvechurch at home to Stocksbridge.

Martin Carruthers said:
“The run of games has really come at a bad time, but luckily we are nearly over the line and our focus now is purely on the title and the 94 points required.

“We are managing the players the best we can to ensure their fitness and we will continue to do so until the end of the season.

“You do have to feel for those clubs who are having to play four and even five games in a week to get the fixtures in when those games have a direct bearing on promotion or relegation.”
