The Hawks will hope to return to winning ways and continue their Westleigh Park form on Saturday when they take on promotion chasing Bath City. 

Bath City made it five wins on the bounce against Truro on Tuesday, so will come into this fixture with high spirits. On the other hand, the Hawks have struggled for form recently, manging only one win in their last 5. 


Opposition form:

Bath City 2-1 Truro City 

Bath City 3-1 St Albans City

Bath City 1-0 Eastbourne Borough 


Last Time Out:

The Hawks travelled to 22nd place Eastbourne Borough with the trip to Priory Lane 

Ryan Seager scored for the Hawks in the 10th minute and were in control for the first thirty minutes. However, the momentum shifted to Eastbourne who equalized through Moussa Diarra in the 42nd minute. 

The Sports continued their control of the game in the second half. Decarrey Sheriff then secured the win for the Sports with a goal in the 63rd minute. Despite their efforts, the Hawks fell to a 2-1 defeat.


Word from the touchline:

Interim co-manager Cliff de Gordon said after the game: “Today we didn’t exploit anything. We just struggled out there, didn’t get the ball down or do anything with it. It was like a horror story.”

“We need to get on a run, and if we get some momentum, we might be alright. There are games there, we can win games and we can beat anyone. But today was just not a good day.” 

“The Hawks fans really put a smile on my face. I spoke to the guys at Yeovil before and after the game, they’re brilliant they really are. I spoke to them again before the game and they’re all so loyal. I just want to give them something to shout over. Thanks to all the fans, we love you lots, we’re just trying to get back on the horse again. See you all at Bath on Saturday.” 



In the reverse fixture Bath City beat the Hawks 2-0 at Twerton Park. Veteran striker Scott Wilson bagged a double with goals in the first and second half, sending the Hawks back to Hampshire empty handed. 

The Hawks first met the Romans in 2007, and since then two sides have played each other 24 times. Bath have taken 9 wins to the Hawk’s 8, while there have been 7 draws. 


The Visitors: 

The Romans have a lot of attacking prowess, which the strike duo of Scott Wilson and Cody Cooke both boasting 13 goals each.
