Malmesbury Victoria boss Andy Wicks has admitted the league title is probably beyond his side.

The Vics are, mathematically, just about in the hunt for the Hellenic League Division One West.

They are six points behind current leaders Easington Sports and have a better goal difference.

Third place Malmesbury also have a game in hand however Thornbury Town, who are a point ahead in second also have a game in hand over Easington.

Fourth place Cheltenham Saracens are also six points behind the leaders with two games to play.

With two games remaining, Wicks feels it will be very difficult for Malmesbury to win the title from their current position, particularly after leaders Easington beat Almondsbury 2-1 last weekend.

“I think it’s wrapped up for us to be honest and I think we’ll finish third,” said Wicks.

“We said if we get can get top four and cup final we’d be happy and we’re in a cup final.

“We have got to go to Almondsbury (tonight) and get a result.

“We lost 3-1 to them recently and they battered us really so if we can get two wins then it will be even more bitter that we lost to them.

“They were one of the best sides we’ve faced this season.

“We were pinning our that game they had against Easington but they lost.

“We must be their bogey team.

“In terms of the title, I fancy Thornbury now with their games in hand.”

Easington’s final game is at home to Cirencester Town Development where victory will secure the title while Thornbury host Pewsey Vale and Newent Town in their remaining two games.

After tonight’s trip to Almondsbury, Malmesbury will play their final league game at lowly Pewsey on Tuesday, April 23.

They also have the Subsidiary Cup final against Burnham to look forward to and Wicks revealed he already has one eye on that game.

“We’re looking forward to the cup final now which is on (Saturday) May 4 - my birthday,” he said.

“We do have one eye on that.

“We want to win our last two league games as well, I don’t know how to set up any other way really.

“I’d say Burnham are slight favourites but it will be a great day out and we’re all looking forward to it.”

The Subsidiary Cup final will be held at Newent Town’s Wildsmith Meadow, kick-off at 3pm.
