Weston-super-Mare travel to high-flying Maidstone United tomorrow (Saturday), as the Seagulls battle to avoid relegation.

Ryan Northmore’s side were stung by a late Vas Karagiannis penalty at the Woodspring Stadium on Tuesday night, going down 2-1. They they remain in the bottom three.

With just one win in their previous eight games, the Seagulls are in desperate need of all three points in Kent.

They were boosted this week by the signing of defender Sekani Simpson, who arrives from Bath City.

Simpson clocked up more than 300 appearances for the Romans and Northmore welcomed the addition to his squad.

Northmore said: “I think between him (Simpson) and Kane Ingram, there’s more appearances at this level than the rest of the squad put together.

“We went there (Twerton Park) last season and he was awarded a trophy or something for playing 300 games for Bath, so he’s well accomplished at this standard.”

Northmore confirmed Simpson would travel to Maidstone.
