METROPOLITAN Police visit the Viridor Stadium tomorrow (ko 3pm), and Taunton Town head of football Rob Dray says “we owe them one”.

It’s a crunch match between the sides sitting second and third in the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division South table, and as well as looking to defend their position, the Peacocks are out for revenge after a 4-1 beating in September’s reverse fixture.

“We do owe them one,” Dray told the County Gazette.

“We got some good information on them on Tuesday [watching their match at Weymouth] and will be well prepared.

“We are also coming off the back of a good week, and we are confident.”

In Max Blackmore and Jack Mazzone, Dray reckons Met Police have “two of the best strikers in the league”, and the visitors will also have a point to prove after losing 4-0 against league leaders Weymouth.

That emphatic win put the Terras five points clear of Taunton, with five games to go, and they look like big favourites to claim the one automatic promotion place – leaving the Peacocks to battle it out in the play-offs.

The title race is far from run, though.

Dray added: “It looks stacked in Weymouth’s favour, but we’ll keep going and see what happens.

“We’ve come through a blip, and we’ll take it one game at a time.

“Three games in seven days [around Easter] could change things.”

Town have defenders Keith Emmerson and Ed Palmer back for Saturday, with new signing Shane Krac and Bridgwater & Taunton College talent Noah Coppin also in line to be included.

“He has a great attitude for such a young player,” said Dray of Coppin.

On Sunday, Taunton Town Legends face Manchester United Legends at the Viridor Stadium (ko 2pm).

Ellis Laight, Anthony Lynch, Tony Payne and Paul West are among the players in Russell Musker's squad, with Wes Brown, Keith Gillespie, Lee Martin and Frank Stapleton included in the Manchester United line-up.

A sizeable crowd is expected for the clash; look out for reaction and photos in next week's County Gazette.
