CIRENCESTER TOWN boss Charlie Griffin is relishing his side’s top of the table clash at league leaders Yate Town on Saturday.

The Centurions currently lie in the play-off places despite drawing their last two and could go within three points of of their rivals.

“I have been really impressed with Yate,” said Griffin. “We know what they’re all about, but we travel looking to get three points.

“I have watched them (Yate) a number of times – they try play from the back and get the ball forward early doors and play-off Nick Peare.”

Griffin thinks Yate have a number of dangerous players, including former Cirencester striker Olly Mehew and on loan Forest Green Rovers goalkeeper Lewis Thomas.

“Olly has done really well for them and Lewis looks a top prospect,” added Griffin.

Town are currently fifth and Griffin was pleased with his side’s point at home to AFC Totton, stretching their unbeaten run to five games.

Griffin said: “It was a fair result, but we had chances to win the game.

"We’ve drawn our last two, but at the end of day we have not lost, so we’re in a good place.”

Griffin also confirmed Hereford loanee goalkeeper Martin Horsell will be back for the trip to Yate.

Meanwhile, Jordan Morris and Antonio Gerrish have joined Shrivenham on loan.
