Welling United return to action when they host Bath City at the J Hearnden Skip Hire Community Stadium on Saturday afternoon (3pm).

The Wings will be looking to bounce back following a first defeat in four at Worthing on Tuesday evening against the side who currently occupy third in the Vanarama National League South table.

Danny Bloor will continue to be without his captain Mitchell Dickenson and young midfielder Enoch Muwonge, who are both set to get their first minutes back for the U23s on Saturday.

Meanwhile, loanee Adam Roscrow will continue to be sidelined with an ankle injury suffered on his debut last weekend, while TJ Bramble is away on international duty with Antigua and Barbuda.


The Romans have enjoyed a strong start to their season with five wins, two draws and just one defeat from their eight games, so far, leaving them in third place on 17 points.

Bath come into the game off the back of a five-game unbeaten run, although a run of four consecutive victories was halted by a 1-1 draw at Truro City in midweek.


Danny Bloor: “Bath are a very strong side. Jerry Gill’s sides are always very well organised and very strong, so it will be a tough test, but we’re really looking forward to it.

“There was a lot of heart to take from Tuesday night. We have to be ready and stand up to the challenge.”

Bath City boss Jerry Gill: “I’ve got a lot of respect for Danny and his staff. It’s a transition period for Welling and he’s doing a great job there, so we know it’s a really tough game up there on Saturday.

“We’ll look forward to it because we’re in really confident mood.”


The Wings claimed victory in the last meeting between the sides in DA16 back in March, with Kodi Lyons-Foster grabbing the only goal of the game in a 1-0 win.


Robert Ablitt will be the man in the middle on Saturday afternoon.

He last took charge of the Wings for the goalless draw at Hungerford Town back in March.

Ablitt will be assisted by Nathan Briggs and Simon Parberry.
