Parkway prepare for midweek trip to Poole Town

On the road in 2023 has followed a similar patter over the course of two games for Parkway, who are gaining plaudits but not the points.

A professional away performance against league leaders Weston-Super-Mare almost yielded a valuable point on the road but a 74th minute mix up in defence would see Jordan Bastin secure the points for the Seagulls.

The 1-0 score line would follow them to Surrey and despite another good display, a sloppy goal would lead to Parkway’s downfall and further points dropped.

They board the coach again tomorrow afternoon with another difficult away fixture on the horizon as they travel to 4th placed Poole Town.

The Dolphins haven’t played in the league since early January and a fine away performance against Salisbury produced a 3-1 win. The victory would make it four league wins on the spin with further wins over Dorchester, North Leigh, and Hanwell Town.

It’s a notable fixture due to both teams having to reschedule numerous times, both home and away. The sides will both be looking for 3 points for very different reasons as Poole Town look to cement their place in the play-off positions and Parkway, they need to begin to turn good performances into points and climb the league table.

It will be their third away fixture on the bounce and with Swindon Supermarine to follow on Saturday, the task in hand doesn’t get any easier.
