After defeat at the weekend against Slough, Weston-super-Mare AFC were hoping to return to their home ground with a win from their midweek fixture.

However on Tuesday night, torrential rain caused the Seagulls match against Chippenham at The Optima to be postponed.

The club said: "Following an inspection by the match referee, tonight's match with Chippenham Town has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

"A new date for the rearranged fixture will be published in due course."

So for this week we look at the Slough game in a little more detail. The defeat was only Weston's second away loss in the league for 2024.

It was a poor performance from the Seagulls as Slough controlled proceedings and went through the motions to earn a 2-0 win.

Speaking after the match, Weston manager Scott Bartlett said: "That was the worst we've played in a long time.

"We played completely into their hands really, we were drilled and we knew what they were good at, and they are a good team by the way, but we didn't do anything to lay a glove on them really."

He added that in the first half, Weston were particularly off the pace as they invited too much pressure from Slough.

"We played pretty much the whole half in our defensive third, when we had the ball we passed it backwards and invited pressure, so disappointed in that respect.

"I would say to a man first half, maybe being a bit harsh on Kane, Dodds and Lloyd, but to a man I felt we were quite off it, so back to the drawing board."

Speaking on how to overcome that going forward into the rest of the season, Bartlett said the team will go away and work hard.

"We know where we're at, we haven't cracked it by any means and there will be some going over that, have a look at it and try and take the positives from it, because there was one or two," he said.

"No excuses for today (at Slough), we got it wrong, individually and collectively really. 

"It kicks you sometimes football, we understand that but we have to be a lot better."

Looking at the league table, Weston currently sit in 16th place in the National League South table with 39 league points from their 30 games played.

They now have a game in hand on a couple of teams around them so the ball is in their court going forward.

Up next, they host Farnborough at The Optima Stadium on Saturday, February 10. Kick off is 3pm.
