The Wings face another long trip to the south west on Saturday as they they take on Taunton Town, looking to gain their first points of the season at the fourth time of asking.

For the second game running, Welling could count themselves extremely unlucky to come away empty-handed as they crashed to a 98th-minute defeat to Chelmsford City on Tuesday night and Danny Bloor will be hoping for a bit more luck when his side takes on the Peacocks.

They will have to do it without midfielder TJ Bramble, who will sit out the first game of his three-match ban on Saturday following his sending off against Hemel Hempstead Town last weekend, although Amadou Kassarate will be available despite his sending off in midweek, with his one-match ban kicking in next weekend.

On the injury front, the Wings will continue to be without Mitchell Dickenson and Enoch Muwonge, but will be hoping Lewis White could make the journey as he awaits his league debut for the club.


Taunton have picked up a win, a draw and a defeat from their opening three games of the campaign, beating Braintree Town 2-1 at home on the opening day, before losing 4-1 at Aveley last weekend and drawing 1-1 at Weymouth on Tuesday.

Last season, the Peacocks enjoyed a mid-table finish in what was their first season at this level, earning 14th position with 17 wins, 10 draws and 19 defeats to their name.


Danny Bloor: “We’re going down on Friday for some good preparation. It’s a game we’re really looking forward to.

“We had them watched at Weymouth on Tuesday night. We know their strengths, they’re a good, strong side, Rob Dray’s side’s are always strong.”

Taunton Manager, Rob Dray: “There’s no respite in this league. Every game is a hard, hard game. Danny’s got a new side there, so it will be tough.

“We’ve put in a lot over the last two away games, we’ll get ourselves ready and go again on Saturday. Being at home again makes a massive difference for us.”
