Weston AFC drew 1-1 with Eastbourne Borough on Tuesday evening in their last home game of the season after putting on a performance that manager Scott Bartlett thought was “worthy of at least a draw, and probably could have won the game.”

Weston conceded first in the game after an uncharacteristic mix up in defence, and then had to wait until the 5th minute of added time for an equaliser from Jamie Soule.

The Seagulls now face away games on Thursday and Saturday to Taunton Town and Worthing respectively.

Local rivals Taunton lost to 2-1 most recently to Torquay United, and sit in the relegation zone, four points away from safety with two games to play, making them desperate for a win.

Talking about the fixtures, Bartlett said: “I thought we did well, I think the lads deserve a lot of credit for their performance against Eastbourne, but we want to finish on a high, I think it’s important to do that.”

“We’re really looking forward to the two games, there’ll be two great crowds with lots at stake for both clubs we’re playing.

“We know what Taunton have to play for and we shouldn’t forget Worthing, they’ve had a fantastic season and they’ll be doing everything they can to finish second to get the advantage in the playoffs, so we know we’ve got two cracking games to come.”
