Allinson rallies St Albans fans ahead of vital run in

St Albans manager Ian Allinson has called on the St Albans fans to act as his side’s 12th man and help propel The Saints into the end of season play-off lottery.
St Albans moved up to fifth position in the National League South table after reversing their run of three straight defeats in Tuesday night’s emphatic 4-1 victory over Gloucester City. They now face a crucial home fixture against fifth-placed Hampton and Richmond Borough and Allinson told the Herts Advertiser of the important role that the St Albans could play.
The St Albans boss said, ““I must say that the 30 or 40 supporters who went to Gloucester were outstanding. They got behind the players, they made loads of noise and I think they sung through the whole of the second half so thank you to them.
“But I want the people of St Albans to turn out in force on Saturday.
“It’s a massive, massive game in terms of where our season is going to go and we need as many people to get there as possible
“The players have been outstanding this season and we need the people of St Albans to turn out and help us get over the line.
“They can make themselves the 12th man.
“It would be fantastic if we could get a similar crowd to the one we had against Carlisle, although that will be difficult to reach those levels”
“However, we’ve had a really good base of around 800 this season who have been outstanding for us and it would be great to get an extra three of four hundred this week, get them behind the goal, and just cheer these boys on because they deserve it as they’ve had a great season and we just need to get over the line now.”
St Albans currently have a three point cushion within the play-off positions with just two league games left to play.
