Fry Club at Keynsham next up for Watchet
Watchet Town and Minehead will be looking to get back to winning ways after suffering away defeats in the Uhlsport Somerset County Football League last weekend, writes Barry Knott.
Watchet went down to a 4-2 loss away to Worle in the Premier Division after being two goals up in the first half while Minehead lost a vital top of the table match to first division rivals Timsbury Athletic who won 1-0 to avenge a defeat by the same score at Minehead earlier this season.
Watchet, who had three players sin-binned in the second half of their game at Worle, face another difficult away match today when they play at Keynsham against Fry Club who are lying sixth in the table.
Watchet still have some ground to make up if they are going to finish in a mid-table position. They also have another 14 league matches to play and their season will not finish until the end of April at best.
Minehead are without a fixture today but play under Street’s floodlights next Tuesday. New league leaders Timsbury play at home to struggling Staplegrove and could be four points clear of Minehead by the end of the weekend if the form book goes according to plan..
Also posing a threat to Minehead’s promotion hopes are Wells City Reserves and Somerton Town who are nine points behind but have three games in hand. Uphill Castle, in third place, are also still in with a chance of going up.
Minehead have another blank Saturday next weekend when Timsbury could take advantage of the situation again to increase their lead at the top.
Minehead have made it known that promotion to the Premier Division is their top priority this season and they realise they need to step up their game in order to achieve this.
