Weekend preview: Bassett aim for Swans double - and playoff place

Wednesday 27th March 2024

Saturday sees Royal Wootton Bassett Town play their penultimate game of the Hellenic League Premier Division away at fellow playoff hopefuls Slimbridge (3pm kick off). And a win for Bassett will see Sam Collier's confirm their place in the promotion playoffs.

A stiff test awaits Bassett though, with the Swans aiming to keep their own playoff push on track and avoid suffering a season double defeat against their visitors after Bassett came from behind to record a 2-1 when the teams met way back in August.

To record maximum points against their opponents Bassett will also have to do something they have never done before - win away at Wisloe Road. Four previous league visits have all ended in defeat with Bassett scoring just a single goal across those fixtures back in October 2004.

It's an important game for both teams - all support Bassett can receive as they visit Gloucestershire will be greatly appreciated!
