ADVER sports reporter Jonathan Leighfield has his say on life at the County Ground ahead of two games in four days for Town against Hull City and Plymouth Argyle.

After an 11-day break without any football for Town, this afternoon’s game against Hull sees a welcome return to the County Ground for a fixture against a team that resided in the Premier League just three years ago.

Relegation in 2017 started a gradual decline for Hull, though they appeared to have caught their fall as they start this afternoon second in League One.

Another “big club” arriving in Wiltshire gives Town the perfect chance to improve on previous showings and correct mistakes made against Sunderland and Northampton.

Far from looking like a side who are certain to face an immediate return to League Two, Richie Wellens’ men showed for large portions of both games that they still have the potential to dig out results and climb the table.

The second half against the Cobblers was maybe the closest thing I’ve seen this season to the side that romped to promotion last term in terms of the sheer domination and the style in which the visitors played.

And that gives me great hope that once a couple of players return from injury, and perhaps a midfielder is added via the free agent market, Town could see fortunes improve.

Once the Hull game is out of the way, Wellens’ men will face a trip to one of their fellow promoted sides on Tuesday, in Plymouth.

Ryan Lowe’s Pilgrims have been going well of late having won three of their previous five in league and cup.

The Green Army will also want revenge for only taking one point from the Robins as Town were crowned champions last term.

However, without a manager in the ground for both games, and up against two of the in-form teams in the league, six points for Town would surely be a shock to many.

Then again, it is a scary time of year.
