FAN'S VIEW: Bath City are still in the discomfort zone
Bath City fan Pete McCormack gives his take on events at Mayday Trust Park...
While City played well to take a point from their visit to Hayes & Yeading last Saturday, a return of one win in the last seven leaves us looking at the wrong end of the Blue Square Bet South table.
The team have picked up points on the road but our home form is worrying. We haven’t played much at Mayday Trust Park recently but our last win there came almost three months ago on November 3.
Does the weakened squad now need some more experienced players? Another keeping error cost us two points at Woking but the City fans that made up a third of the attendance were very supportive of youngster Jason Mellor.

It was good to see Josh Low having such a positive impact again. with Chris Allen also returning to make a difference.
There was, however, a lot of concern about City’s inability to name a full quota of substitutes, with just three players on the bench. We heard that the manager didn’t want to bring players back from loan but surely there are others in the squad who could do a job?
I am just glad to be able to write about football again. Since chairman Manda Rigby chose to use the Chronicle to start a debate about the club’s very existence it has been an intense period of argument.
I hope the question and answer session in the TR Hayes Lounge tonight (7.30pm) will help us see more clearly what the issues are so that a more rounded and rational view can be taken by all.
This Saturday’s fixture with Staines Town is vital. I applaud the club’s initiative in seizing on the goodwill of Bristol Rovers fans with the ‘Pack the Park’ campaign and offering reduced prices for the Welling and Staines games this week.
I’ll be at both the sold-out Ken Loach film night tomorrow and the Staines match and I look forward to chatting to as many City fans as possible to get their take on the current crisis at the club.
It has been a difficult season with so few Saturday games. I have planned to come to a number of matches which have since been re-arranged to Tuesdays and it is very difficult to get to these from a distance.
As the weather improves, I hope to see much more of the boys in black and white. The turmoil off pitch doesn’t help so the team really need our support in the struggle for survival.
