Despite the result though it was just good to see the evidence in person the new Railway stand project which has made great progress in only a week with the old structure all but demolished bar the framework, and two sets of temporary seats in place.

As for the game itself, Bath owed their victory firstly by becoming the first club to shut out Maidenhead's new attacking formation led by Adrian Clifton, and secondly by taking advantage of an uncharacteristic slip by goalkeeper Elvijs Putnins with five minutes remaining.
For the most part of the game Maidenhead were on top, Tyrell Miller-Rodney forcing Bath goalkeeper Jason Mellor to push shots past the post twice in the first period, whilst former Magpies Dave Pratt was denied a second goal of the season against his old club by a superb last ditch save by Putnins.
Early in the second half, Putnins made a good double save to keep the game goalless, but despite dominating the rest of the game, United were unable to fashion a chance good enough to break the deadlock. This meant when a high cross from the right went through the hands of Putnins for Josh Low to tap in at the far post, all three points were heading back down the M4 with City.
