Bracknell Town – One To Watch
Bracknell striker, Jordan Esprit is currently sitting on 14 league goals so far this season, and his partnership with Joe Grant up top for Bracknell is proving to be the key partnership in the league this season, with Grant on 13 league goals.
Merthyr Town – L L W L L
Bracknell Town – L W L L W
The Martyrs are currently sitting 3rd in the League table, whereas Bracknell currently sit just five places below in 8th , part of the pack chasing those playoff places.
This is the first meeting of the two sides this season, due to a fixture rearrangement thanks to both teams FA Cup matches. However, Bracknell did the double over the Martyrs last season, in their impressive campaign that saw them narrowly lost to Truro City in the play-off final.
We welcome the children from Cascade Under 6s who are our matchday mascots for Saturday’s game and will be leading the Martyrs out at Penydarren Park ahead of the game. We hope you have a great day at the club!
