Struggling Seagulls Backed To Turn Their Season Around

Weston-super-Mare have been given a boost in their bid to avoid relegation - by a rival manager!

The Seagulls have had a few days to forget and sit bottom of the National League South again.

On Saturday they went down 4-2 at home to Woking, and couldn’t give their fans anything to cheer in Tuesday night when Chelmsford City took three points.

But after the 3-0 victory, Clarets manager Rod Stringer gave them hope of avoiding the drop.

He says Marc McGregor’s team are much better than their position in the table would suggest - and backed them to turn it round in the second half of the season.

Stringer said: “Anyone who has seen the result may not think it’s the case but Weston are a really, really good side. Very strong.

“I say the same thing every year. They make life very difficult for you. They will start getting results soon, mark my words.

“Maybe scoring goals have been a bit of an issue for them this season but they are never a bottom of the table side in a million years - that’s why I am very happy with the result.”

Stringer’s side needed it after Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at East Thurrock, another of the stragglers.

“We played well,” the manager said. “You have to play well at places like Weston if you
are going to come away with a result.”
