JODY Bevan has called on his Fairford Town side to deliver a 90-minute performance in tomorrow’s crunch encounter with fellow Hellenic League Premier Division strugglers Burnham at Cinder Lane.

Although Fairford go into the clash with their second-from-bottom visitors on the back of three straight defeats, they went close to picking up a point in their most recent outing – a 3-2 defeat at sixth-placed Binfield on Saturday.

And after Wednesday night’s home fixture with Abingdon United was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, manager Bevan is eager to see his troops pick up from where they left off last time out.

“The Binfield game summed up our season,” said Bevan.

“We didn’t play well at all in the first half and the players had a talking-to at half-time.

“In the second 45 minutes we were outstanding and I’d say it’s the best half of football we’ve produced since I’ve been at the club.

“We need to see that for the whole game, although it feels like I’ve been saying that for a long time. It did show that we are not a million miles away from being a good side in this league.”

Three of Fairford’s four recent signings – centre back Shaun Brian, defender Lee Worgan and attacker Dan Gardner – are set to face a Burnham outfit beaten 3-1 when the sides last met on November 11.

Connor Lynch, who netted on his debut against Binfield, is unavailable.

Royal Wootton Bassett Town, who lost at home to bottom team Highmoor Ibis and runaway leaders Highworth Town either side of Christmas, make the trip to Binfield tomorrow.
