The Scholars play at home for the final time this season on Saturday. Mark Hemmings previews tomorrow's match with Brentwood Town.

POTTERS Bar Town wrap up their home league games this season tomorrow against promotion hopefuls Brentwood Town.

Steve Browne's men beat the Essex side in November 1-0 thanks to a Carl Wilson-Denis header from a Hector Mackie cross.

Wilson-Denis is no longer at the Parkfield club after his loan spell from Maidenhead United expired, while Mackie has missed the second half of the season with a knee injury.

Since then Bar have struggled for other victories and have only just managed to steer themselves away from the relegation zone.

The Blues are up the other end of the table, but need to win their final two games if they are to stand a chance of making the play-offs.

You could be forgiven for thinking that the visitors on Saturday will be hungrier for the three points than their hosts.

But the Scholars have hit a nice little patch of form and performances of late have been good.

They are unbeaten in three games and will not want to surrender a decent run.

That stretch of results began when they were unfortunate to not get a win against league leaders Dartford in a 2-2 draw.

Bar then drew with Wivenhoe Town by the same scoreline and beat Waltham Abbey 2-1 in the following match last Saturday.

Against the Abbotts the Scholars showed the kind of form they are capable of and fully deserved the three points.

A big plus for Bar boss Browne has been the return to scoring form of striker Sam Adejokun, who has rediscovered his confidence in front of goal.

The pacy young forward has found the back of the net four times in his last three matches and will be looking to add to that on Saturday.

Things look like they are coming together for the Scholars, unfortunately for them it is too little, too late for this term.

However, it could bode well for next season if Browne can keep hold of his key players and add a new new faces in the right areas.

For now they can enjoy their final two games and try to keep the unbeaten run going to the end of the season.
