DOUBLE the usual number of supporters cheered Bracknell Town FC to victory in a key fight against relegation - and fans are needed again on Saturday.

The '12th man' helped the Robins secure a dramatic win at home against Cheltenham Saracens on Saturday. This meant that they moved off the bottom of the Hellenic Premier Division table for the first time this season - with just one game left.

The Robins are still at risk of the drop and are looking for a win in that final game, against Reading Town this weekend.

Bracknell Town FC director Tom Canning said: "We don't know how many teams will be relegated. If we win against Reading then we've given ourselves a better chance. We just need to make sure we've done everything we can."

He added: "Thank you from myself and the club to everybody who came down to the game on Saturday.

"We hope they enjoyed themselves and we hope that they saw it is a friendly and social club that it's good fun to be a part of."

Mr Canning encouraged supporters to turn out for the final game and said: "It makes a massive, massive difference."

Bracknell's game on Saturday kicks off at 3pm at Reading Town's ground in Scours Lane, Reading RG30 6AY.
