Welling United head west to Chippenham Town on Tuesday evening looking to make it back-to-back wins for the first time since the turn of the year. 

The Wings got back to winning ways with a 1-0 victory over play-off hunting Bath City at Park View Road on Saturday and will be hoping to build on that as they go in search of a strong end to the campaign. 

Welling remain six points ahead of the drop zone with a superior goal-difference and three points at Hardenhuish Park would surely banish any lingering concerns of any late-season drama at the wrong end of the table with a comfortable mid-table finish remaining the target. 

In terms of team news, Yusuf Mersin is likely to remain between the sticks with Myles Roberts nursing an injury and Kai McKenzie-Lyle away on international duty, while Sadik Balarabe remains a doubt with a hamstring complaint.

Daniel Nkrumah could be available after missing out on Saturday with a minor knock following his return to Park View Road on loan from Leyton Orient.

After spending much of the season seemingly locked in a relegation battle, the Bluebirds have hit a rich vein of form at the right time, lifting themselves further from the danger zone over the last month, or so. 

Indeed, Chippenham are unbeaten in their last 12 games, embarking on a run of six straight draws, before stringing together five wins on the bounce in March. 

They come into the game off the back of a 1-1 draw at home to Eastbourne Borough at the weekend which saw Joe Parker net an 82nd-minute leveller to secure a point. 

Chippenham currently sit in 14 place in Vanarama National League South, one place and two points ahead of the Wings with 11 wins, 14 draws and 13 defeats from their 38 games played, so far. 

Warren Feeney: “We’ll hopefully have a couple off the treatment table with the games coming thick and fast. We were outstanding on Saturday and there’s a lot of football still to be played.

“There are seven games to go and we’ll just keep focusing on the next game.”

Chippenham Town boss, Gary Horgan: “We’re battling with the pitch at the moment, but it will be another good, tough game. They’re a team in and around us and we’ll be looking to keep the run going.”

The Wings’ last visit to Hardenhuish Park resulted in a 3-1 victory back in October 2021.

Daniel Carr opened the scoring after 23 minutes, before Adam Mann’s spectacular free-kick levelled matters for the hosts on the stroke of half-time.

But Welling edged ahead in the second half through Dip Akinyemi’s 53rd-minute header, while Che Krabbendam added gloss to the result four minutes later.

Tickets for Tuesday evening’s game will be available on the gate at Hardenhuish Park priced: £14 adults, £10 concessions and students and £3 U18s, while U16s go free with an accompanying adult.
