CHAIRMAN'S REPORT

24 April 2014

Nick on the final two games of the season

We find ourselves in a very difficult position with just two games of the season left to go. However, as things remain our destiny is still in our own hands.

Thankfully, other results went our way over the weekend, and if we can beat Wycombe at Adams Park this weekend, we can make a big leap towards securing league football for next year.

I would like to thank all the wonderful supporters who made the trip to Fratton Park last Saturday. Yet again the support was tremendous, despite the position we find ourselves in, and you did the club proud.

I would also like to thank those who turned out in their numbers for the home game against Rochdale and stayed behind the team for the entire game.

I felt we were very unlucky not to take something at Portsmouth especially after losing two key players midway through the game, but Rochdale were clearly the better team at the Mem on Monday.

However, both performances were full of fight and commitment – something that was missing from the Torquay game a few weeks ago. As supporters, I know that the most important thing is to see a player who is proud to wear the blue and white quarters, and battle for that shirt, and I think the last two performances have at least restored a bit of pride.

However, at this stage of the season, we need to start picking up the points we need to stay in this league.

We have two massively important games left now, and it is vital that we all continue to stick together and get behind the team, to help try and get the club out of this situation.

With over 1,600 tickets already sold for the Wycombe match, I know there will be another band of passionate Gasheads supporting the side, and I cannot wait to hear Goodnight Irene ringing out around Adams Park.

We will have a lot of work to do in the summer to get this club moving in the right direction, so we can take a team we can be proud of into the new UWE Stadium. But for now we have to focus all our energy on these next two games, and getting the points we need to remain in League Two for the 2014/15 season. 

Thank you again Gasheads.
