Last home game for Blues on Saturday

Stratford Town are the visitors to the ProKit (UK) Stadium as Blues wrap up their season on Saturday, kick-off 3pm.

After losing their first five league games, Kevin Watson’s young side have steadily picked up points and they could finish as high as 15th with a win on Saturday.

Town will arrive at Stortford in 15th place with 54 points from 45 games but in common but have only taken three points from their last six matches, while Blues have taken 16 points from the last seven games at the ProKit (UK) Stadium.

Callum Taylor’s late goal was only a consolation as Blues returned empty handed from Williams Shakespeare’s home town in November.

Watson’s side fell behind in the 34th minute from the penalty spot, and goals in the 70th and 74th effectively wrapped up the win for the home side.

The midlands side appear to have saved their best performances for cup games, progressing to the FA Cup fourth qualifying round with wins against Newcastle Town and Redditch United before losing a home replace against Scarborough Athletic, while they defeated Bedworth United 2-1 in the FA Trophy before losing 3-0 at Lancaster City.

Just one defeat in the final seven games of last season saw Town move away from the danger zone, eventually finishing 14th with 56 points from 56. It was a five place and six point improvement on their debut season in the Premier Division, and they have made considerable progress after playing at step 5 between 1994 and 2013.

Stratford moved into The MoodChimp Stadium at Knights Lane in the 2007–08 season.

They played their first league match at Knights Lane against Barwell on February 16, 2008,. and their record attendance is 1,054 for the Southern League South & West Division play-off final against Larkhall Athletic in May 2015.
