Wealdstone fear former terrace favourite Richard Jolly could ruin their last shot at the Ryman Premier League play-offs on Saturday. The striker struck up a formidable partnership with Jermaine Beckford, whose is still at his prolific best with Leeds United, and he returns to the St George's Stadium on Saturday aiming to ruin a possible play-off party.
“Jols could come back to haunt us but we really have to treat Saturday as an opportunity,” said Stones manager Gordon Bartlett. “At half time on Thursday I wrote on the board 'the whole season rests on the next 45 minutes'. Now all I have to do is rub part of that out so it reads 'it rests on Saturday's game'.”
Bartlett was delighted with the 2-1 win over Tonbridge Angels and sensed it was going to be his side's day after observing the Angels dug-out.
“We felt they were transmitting panic or desperation from the bench, whereas we decided to remain calm and relax,” he added. “I was not happy with the first 20 minutes so we moved Matt McClure out left and brought Ryan Ashe inside to bolster it up. We got more possession after that.”
Bartlett has no fresh injury concerns ahead of Saturday's do-or-die clash and versatile centre-half James Gray could return if he shakes off an ankle injury.
