Helston Athletic could make it five wins in a row in all competitions when they face Wellington away from home on Saturday, December 4.

In their last match on they defeated Shepton Mallet 1-0 thanks to a second half goal from Ryan Turner.

Having not played last weekend Helston slipped to fourth in the league table. Crucially however, the Blues have games in hand over all of their surrounding teams.

If they win all of their four additional matches over league leaders Tavistock they will rise to the top of the table. 

Previewing the fixture Helston Athletic Manager Steve Massey said: “It’s going to be a really tough one. We are on a real bounce at the moment and I hope that can continue. 
“We had our last four games at home, we set a target of winning them all and we have done that. Now comes a really tough month with three games away from home before boxing day at home to Mousehole. 

“This is what we got promotion for, no disrespect to the South West Peninsula League but we want to go and test ourselves.

"I saw them (Wellington) play at Bridgwater as I do with all the teams. They lost 3-1 but there was nothing in it at all and with some better finishing they would have got something from the game. 

“I see they had a very good win at Keynsham on their artificial pitch. They are a good workmanlike side as with all the teams in the league. Even going one, two, or three up doesn’t guarantees you a win and Wellington will stay in the game. They get people behind the ball and try and counter attack you.

 “They will be at home, but I can’t see them changing philosophy. 
“The pitch is probably going to be very wet and heavy, we have a lot of players that like to run with the ball so that might be a consideration with my team selection but I’ll be very pleased if we came back with three points on Saturday.”

Massey confrimed he had a full squad to choose from heading into the game with Ryan Beattie and Ryan Turner returning from injuries as well as centre back Josh Storey returning from a family event. 

The form of the side has been very pleasing to Massey and the gaffer suggested the scorelines in their recent matches didn’t reflect the performances his side have produced, he said: “It is excellent, we wanted to win the four games, three in the league and to be in the quarter final of the Senior Cup and we have done that. 

“The pleasing factor is also the performances got better. The scoreline might not suggest that but for me the performances, our mindset and strength of performance got stronger.

"The scoreline looks a lot closer than the games were. I keep saying we are going to wallop someone and all our chances will go in but I am very pleased with the way we are performing. 

“We have looked very strong, and always capable of creating chances and scoring goals. I have the players from the subs bench which is always a sign of as strong squad when you have the got the people who can play in different positions to change the game or change tactics.
“We have got those people whoever starts we have a strong 17/18 players now.”
