Cambridge City go searching for their fourth win on the bounce when they entertain Dorchester Town at Westwood Road tomorrow. The match is yet another crucial six pointer as the Lilywhites hope to pull off the great escape from relegation.

City will go into the match full of confidence and with momentum following victories against Cinderford (twice) and Cirencester in their last 3 outings. That run of form has put City level on points with Kings Langley who sit one place outside the relegation zone courtesy of a superior goal difference.

Dorchester arrive at Westwood Road six points and two places better off than City, and still not mathematically safe from the relegation trap door. The last two games have seen the Magpies pick up two points with home draws against Hitchin and Kings Lynn. Prior to that they lost against Biggleswade and St Ives which came after wins against Hayes and Yeading and Kings Langley.

The visitors tomorrow have won 4 times on the road this season, the last of which came at Hitchin in a midweek fixture at the end of February. In the reverse fixture back at the end of August, City recorded their first win of the season when they returned from the Avenue Stadium with a 2-0 victory.

The Lilywhites will have to do without central defender Jordan Williams for the match tomorrow as he serves a one match ban after being sent off in the victory at Cirencester last Saturday. Elsewhere, boss Robbie Nightingale will be asking for his men to replicate the same level of performance from the last 3 games as his side look for another massive victory. Dan Walker and Norman Wabo will be leading the attacking options with Salim Relizani available again after missing the trip to Cinderford in midweek.

The permutations as to what might happen come the end of the season will become a little clearer over the Easter weekend. On Monday City travel to Kettering before a potential last day showdown with fellow relegation contenders St Neots Town.

One of the relegation threatened sides, Cirencester are in action today when they travel to Slough Town. The key matches tomorrow see St Neots travel to Chippenham, Hayes and Yeading go to Dunstable whilst Kings Langley make the journey to Redditch.

With a lot depending on the game, City will be hoping their supporters come out in force for the encounter. With many of the local teams playing on Good Friday, the club is pushing a special offer for anyone who has a season ticket for another Cambridgeshire football club. If you do, then you can get half price adult admission for the match. Just simply present your valid season ticket at the turnstiles to redeem the offer.

In the event that you cannot get to the game, then BBC Radio Cambridgeshire will be providing live commentary from Westwood Road. The coverage gets underway at 2:00pm and you can listen on 95.7/96FM, online or Freeview channel 722. You can also keep up to date via the club Facebook and twitter feeds throughout the afternoon with a full match report and post-match interviews on the official website on Saturday evening.

Kick-off at Westwood Road is at 3:00pm.
