Howells targets Clarets scalp

Bath City first-team coach Lee Howells is targeting a win against Chelmsford City this weekend as the Romans aim to further distance themselves from the drop zone.

Bath raised their tally for the season to 48 points on Easter Monday with a goalless draw against promotion hopefuls Salisbury City at Twerton Park.

A win on Saturday against the Clarets would see them overtake their safety mark of 50 points and extend their unbeaten run to six games.

Howells told This is Bath: “We’ve always done well against Chelmsford and we’ll go up there and have another good go.

“We’ve had a really good run of five games, picking up some important points, and it’s got us closer to that 50-point mark where we want to be.

“The last time we went five unbeaten was probably two-and-a-half years ago at least, so it’s been a good month.”

Meanwhile, Bath’s director of football, Adie Britton, has confirmed that striker Elliott Chamberlain has cut short his loan at Twerton Park in order to fight for a new contract at Exeter City.
