Clarets manager Robbie Simpson caught up with chelmsfordcityfc.com to discuss this weekend’s Vanarama National League South fixture.


Chelmsford City welcome Slough Town to the EMG Inspire Stadium following an excellent Easter bank holiday weekend where City picked up 6 points against St Albans City and Billericay Town.

These wins created a 9 point gap between the Clarets and bottom spot with 4 games left to play, but the boss insists that the job is not done yet.

“We are not safe yet” said Simpson. “We have to get another point to be mathematically safe and we will be trying to do that against Slough, who have just come off the back of a great victory against Hemel [Hempstead Town].”

“We welcome Slough [on Saturday]. We played them the first game of the season and I did not think there was much in the game, but the story of our season really is that we came off on the wrong result, a 1-0 defeat.

“It was a very well taken clinical goal from them, but it was a fairly even game. So we will be aiming to right that wrong and try and get our revenge on that first loss.”

“Then ultimately, a win will keep us safe and then we can really accelerate into the end of the season and fingers crossed, keep that momentum going till next season.”
