LOTS OF LEAGUE ACTION IF THE WEATHER IS KIND
SATURDAY FEBRUARY 10
Unless the weather intervenes Alphington have the chance to move three points clear in Premier if their trip to face Sidmouth Town Res this saturday proves successful. On their own patch the vikings have only won once but to puncture the Alphas unbeaten away record would be a massive boost.
Joint leaders Kentisbeare have the day off but cannot be overtaken even if third place Colyton win at Lapford a tough ask as the hosts average four goals a match at home,
Winkleigh are away at Elmore Res still seeking their first point, Upottery and Lyme Regis have an intriguing local derby especially with the Fort Davey side on a high after last weeks success.
The other top fixture is at the University Res where they welcome Crediton United Res.
Division One leaders St Martins defend their six points cushion at home to Hatherleigh Town who have a better away record than at home.
Second place Wellington Res with seven wins on foreign soil may prove to strong for Bow AAC but if the tangerines slip up the University 3rds unbeaten on their travels could draw level if they win at Newtown Resl.
Central FC seeking a boost after losing in the County cup last week could not have a bigger test than their home date with Division Two leaders Clyst Valley Res, who hope to protect their two point lead over Farway United who have a derby at Seaton Town.
Division Three leaders Budleigh Salterton Res are at Wingfield Park to try and puncture Heavitree Uniteds 100% home record, while closest rivals Witheridge take their unbeaten record to Lyme Regis Res. Third place Alphington Res are at Broadclyst who have won all seven matches at home this season.
Division Four leaders Bickleigh, eight points clear, are at nearby Cullompton Rangers Res, with second place Uplyme home to second from bottom Chagford.
Starcross Dons delight at getting to the County cup semi finals last week, could weigh heavily on Division Five hosts Exeter United the team they face at KGV. A win for the Dons would restore their nine points leadership.
With leaders Otterton on a day off, Railway FC stand to regain top spot in Division Six if they topple visitors Bampton but the ponies have a habit of sharing the spoils on their travels.
Joint Division Seven leaders Uplowman United and Priory both face away tasks, but Priory look to have the harder test at City Raiders Res who could go second if they are successful/
Finally Division Eight leaders Heavitree United Res are at Simmons Pak to take on Okehampton 3rds, close rivals Alphington 3rds hosting an Amory Argyle team which has not done well on its travels.
