SECOND half goals from Sakho Bakare and Simon Martin ensured St Albans City’s Evostik League Southern Premier Division play-off push continued with a 2-0 win over Bashley on Saturday.

Bakare broke the deadlock in the 73rd minute as he headed home a Sean Shields cross.

Just seven minutes later the three points were virtually sealed as Bakare set-up Martin who fired home.

The victory maintained The Saints impressive seven-match unbeaten streak and leaves them five points off the play-off places.

City will be hoping to continue that run on Saturday as they host Banbury United at Clarence Park, kick-off 3pm, before David Howell’s side entertain play-off rivals Stourbridge next Tuesday night, 7.45pm.

Being ill sucks. No matter what’s got you down – the flu, a broken bone, diabetes, cancer – it’s a horrible place to be. Your body is weaker and less capable. The drugs you take mess with your mind and your moods and sometimes can make you feel even worse than when you started. Mental ill-health is no different. The brain is an organ, and like any organ, it doesn’t always function to the medical standard of “normal”. Mine certainly doesn’t.
