  • Hastings United travel to Three Bridges tonight, weather permitting
  • Win would move United into play-off spots
  • U’s currently seven places and eight points above Bridges
  • United have won four and lost two of last six matches
  • Bridges have won two and lost four of their last six

Hastings United’s match away to Three Bridges tonight (Tuesday) is subject to a pitch inspection.

The playing surface at Jubilee Field will be checked at 12.30pm having been frozen this morning.

If the game goes ahead, United will be targeting a victory which would lift them up three places into the Ryman Football League Division One South play-off spots.

United have won four and lost two of their last six games, the latest of which was a 2-1 victory away to Whitstable Town on Saturday when Sean Ray scored a 95th minute winner.

Bridges have won two and lost four of their most recent six fixtures, and their first home match for four weeks ended in a 2-0 defeat at home to Molesey on Saturday.

United are seven places and eight points better off than Bridges having played three fewer matches. The teams have yet to meet this season.

There may well be a couple of familiar faces in the Bridges line-up as former United players Matt Whitehead and Jamie Crellin now ply their trade with the Crawley-based club. Kick-off is 7.45pm.
