PREVIEW: Yate Town v Cinderford Town - Play Off Final

By Sebastian Parker

The climax of a thrilling season comes to an end tomorrow afternoon, with promotion up for grabs.

There was a worry that the final will be played out with both teams unable to gain promotion due to the points per a game restructure, but the Bluebells now know that promotion is possible with Heybridge Swifts winning their final this afternoon on penalties.

But, Cinderford despite being unable to gain promotion will still be looking to win the play offs, and their intentions were shown on Wednesday evening when they went to Cirencester and won 2-1.

The game between the two sides at Lodge Road was a tight affair finishing 1-0, but Yate were thrashed at Cinderford 5-1 not so long ago with James Harding scoring all 5.

Wednesday's semi final against Moneyfields displayed what Yate are about though, guts, desire and determination to get the result. The supporters were immense and we hope you are back at Lodge Road tomorrow, helping the players over the line once again.

Team News:
Elliott Keightley misses the game after his sending off in the semi final. Everyone else is fit and available.

Polly's View:
"The game tomorrow now has something to play for after the results of the other playoff finals this weekend. Unfortunately the farcical circumstances won't allow Cinderford to gain promotion. We know as a group we must perform far better than we did at the Causeway not so long ago, to even think about the outcome of this game would be premature. Cinderford and Moneyfields both displayed their intentions on Wednesday, this is far from over"

Ross Langworthy on Twitter:
"Get yourself down to Lodge Road, pack the place out and get it bouncing again. Superb atmosphere on Wednesdsy night which helped us over the line, going to need more of the same tomorrow". #bluebells
