Having already more or less secured Skrill South safety for the season, the attentions of Spencer Day’s side have most likely switched to reaching the 50 points mark, and improving on a below-par display last time out, where they were beaten 1-0 away at Dorchester.
Boro head into the game sixteenth in the table, four places ahead of visitors Maidenhead United by seven points, despite having played a game more than The Magpies.
Alan Inns remains the only known absentee as the Boro skipper serves the second of his three match ban.
The Magpies will be fighting tooth and nail to stay in the Skrill South with just four games remaining, meaning Boro will have their work cut out if they are to take three points off Johnson Hippolyte’s men.
Currently occupying the final relegation position, the Magpies find themselves just two points off 21st placed Whitehawk albeit with a game in hand, and they will be relying on some much improved away form to keep them in the Conference South for another season. Johnson Hippolyte’ side have not won in two matches, and with games running out, Saturday afternoon’s clash is shaping up as a must-win.
The Magpies boss Johnson Hippolyte wants the Magpies to come out ‘all guns blazing’ in their final matches of the season against Farnborough, Ebbsfleet United, Havant & Waterlooville and Bishop’s Stortford. Thursday’s 3-1 home defeat against Concord Rangers, and the fractious stalemate with Tonbridge on Saturday, hasn’t done much for the Magpies’ chances of staying up, but manager Hippolyte will be the last man to give up hope of avoiding the drop.
Ahead of Saturday’s game, Hippolyte told the Maidenhead Advertiser “I don’t think there’ll be a lot between the sides.
“They’re not completely safe either, but first and foremost we’ll set up right and go for the win. It’s going to be very tough playing four games in the last week.”
One to watch: Danny Green – 11 goals
In the reverse fixture, the two sides drew 2-2 at York Road back in November, but Maidenhead know that a point this time around won’t be as valuable as all three.
