USW host Bristol in a top of the table clash in the BUCS Western 1A division with the winner taking a big stride towards the title.

Having drawn 1-1 in the reverse fixture, USW will be looking to extend their winning run in 2019 to three matches with the title to play for.

Bristol are also on a good run of form winning their last four matches, scoring 21 goals in the process and conceding just three.

With just two games left of the season, just one point separates the top two from third place Bournemouth who will be hoping for a draw between the teams above them.

USW have not been as free scoring as their opponents Bristol who have a superior goal difference seeing them currently in first place, although this will be irrelevant should either side take all three points.

Another area USW will want to improve is their defensive record having not kept a clean sheet since November, this would be an ideal match to add to their two clean sheets so far this season.

The only other action in Western 1A division sees Hartpury travel to Southampton Solent, with the away side striving to avoid relegation.
