Bedford Town have just four league matches remaining this season, needing positive results from them all if they are to retain their current play off position.

Even if Bedford stay in fourth and go on and win the play offs, promotion is far from guaranteed because of a complicated promotion structure between all of the leagues playing at our level.

This Saturday The Eagles entertain Sutton Coldfield, in what will be the penultimate home fixture this season.

Back just before Christmas, Town narrowly missed out, going down 2-3 after being level at half time.

Midfielder Ben Ford was a scorer then, he and top scorer Dan Walker and defender Brett Longden were the only players to remain in the starting line up that had the convincing win at Dunstable Town last weekend.

Manager Jon Taylor said, “we are now at the business end of the season, we need to get maximum points from our remaining games to keep our dream of promotion alive.

We have brought in new talent over the last few months and last weeks 5-0 win shows we now have players that can take the team forward.

The support of our fans is fantastic, week in, week out and I hope this weekend is no exception. The 12th man can really make a difference in close matches and I hope our fans are there, and vocal in numbers on Saturday,”

Bedford Town F.C play Sutton Coldfield F.C at The Eyrie, Meadow Lane, Cardington on Saturday 13th April, kick-off is at 3pm.

Turnstiles will open at 12.30pm for big screen pre match viewing of Tottenham v Huddersfield Town. Post match the Manchester United v West Ham game will also be shown.
