FOOTBALL: Taunton Town entertain Paulton Rovers tomorrow
5:00pm Friday 22nd March 2013 in Somerset Sport
The sides have met three times already this season, with the Peacocks winning an FA Cup replay back in August following a draw at Winterfield Road, and then snatching a point with a late equaliser in a 3-3 draw in the away league fixture in November.
However Paulton have improved their position since that meeting and now sit just one place below a play-off berth.
Town manager Leigh Robinson said: “It will be a tough game as Paulton are pushing for the play offs and will no doubt be buoyed by Yate losing last weekend.
“We’ve had some good results against them though this season in the three previous games so we’ll be pretty confident.”
Captain Simon Ingram, Shane Kingston and Andy Robertson will miss the match as they are on holiday. However Clay Bond, Ben Mammola and Craig Herrod are all set to return Wednesday night's match with Merthyr Town at Wordsworth Drive, which was postponed because of a floodlight failure, has been re-arranged for Thursday, April 4 at 7.45pm.
On Monday evening, Taunton make the short trip to Bridgwater Town for a rearranged Evo-Stik League game, kick-off 7.45pm.
The Peacocks will face their near neighbours in three consecutive weeks beginning with Monday’s game which will be followed by the return league fixture at Wordsworth Drive on Easter Monday and the semi-final of the Somerset Premier Cup at Fairfax Park.
Taunton Under 18’s, whose fixture at Brislington was postponed last week, have a home game with Bishop Sutton in the Somerset Floodlight Youth League on Tuesday evening, kick-off 7.45pm.
