Tuesday 27th March.

The preparations continued today for the decisive period of 10 games in 39 days as the climax to the season draws ever nearer. A reserve fixture against Preston at the McAlpine gave Town an opportunity to field a side likely to closely resemble the side on duty against Portsmouth on Saturday. When you look at the line up of – Vaesen; Heary; Moses; Dyson; Smith (Holland), Gorré; Baldry; Irons; Thornley; Booth (Macari); Gallen (Schofield), it either suggests that Macari is likely to pair Booth and Gallen on Saturday or that they are determined to bring some silverware to club in the form of the Avon Insurance league championship trophy.

Anyway, there was good news from the second string as they took another step towards the championship with a 2-1 win, and better news for the fans as Andy Booth took just 43 minutes to head home his first goal of his second spell at the club. He also contributed to the second by being brought down in the penalty area with Kenny Irons converted the spot kick. Both Booth and Gallen played almost the entire match, with the striking duo replaced by Danny Schofield and Paul Macari after 86 minutes. The only bad news was that Martin Smith picked up an injury (what another one?) after just 17 minutes and is probably now doubtful for the game on Saturday.

A big thank you to Machala for putting up with me doing this and Ian for his support and my Mum for her proof reading.
