Larkhall Athletic vs. Frome Town: Preview and Ticket Info

Steve Jupp, BA11's Club Historian, looks ahead to a critical midweek clash.


On the back of scoring ten times in three straight wins, the Robins embark upon the first of a trio of tricky-looking away trips on Wednesday evening when they venture to local Bath-based rivals Larkhall Athletic. 


This fixture was originally scheduled for New Year's Day, but fell foul of inclement weather and, since then, the Larks have put together an impressive run of four wins and a draw from five which included the notable scalp of Wimborne (by a decisive 3-1 margin).



They were brought down to earth with a thump on Saturday, shipping five second-half goals at bottom club Exmouth but Danny Greaves' side would be wise to steel themselves for a backlash and beware the wounded animal. 


Currently in eleventh place, Larkhall are one of a number of teams who, with a decent run-in, could clinch a play-off place, such is the congested nature of the middle of the table.

 

When the pair met at Badgers Hill way back in August, Frome ran out 2-0 winners thanks to early goals from Kane Simpson and James Ollis and another clean sheet would be more than welcome at Plain Ham where the Larks have won seven of their eleven home Southern League encounters this term. 


They say staying at the top is harder than getting there. For all involved with Frome Town, that adage is about to be put to the test.

Wimborne won 2-1 last night against Melksham, so we have to win tonight to go back to the top. This fixture has always proved difficult so we are going to have to be at our best.

Larkhall's best league crowd this season is 241 against Wimborne, that may be beaten tonight with the help our away support.

Larkhall did get a capacity crowd of 1,000 v Bath City in the FA Cup and led 2-0 at half time, only to lose 3-2 at the death.

Whilst they lost 5-0 last Saturday at Exmouth , they beat them by the same score at home!

Not for the first time this season - let's hope this rain eases off!
