MINEHEAD will be looking for another three points when they play at home to third-placed Burnham United in the first division of the Uhlsport Somerset County Football League tomorrow (Sat, 3p.m.).
Minehead won 1-0 at home to Westfield last weekend to move up to ninth in the table - and have games in hand on some teams above them.
However, United will provide a tough test, having topped the table only a fortnight ago. They are only one point behind leaders Staplegrove with a match in hand.
Minehead will be hoping top scorer Guy Burns will be fit after limping off against Westfield. His winning goal against Westfield was his tenth of the season.
Watchet Town, who have improved considerably since the start of the season, find themselves without a match after going fourth in the table following their 2-0 away victory over Yatton & Cleeve United last weekend.
“We were very surprised the game at Yatton was on,” said Watchet spokesman Nick Sully. “The pitch was in surprisingly good condition considering they had been unable to play on it for quite some time.
"I thought we were fortunate to be on level terms at half time but we were clearly the better side after the interval.
"We would have liked a game this weekend especially as we have begun fielding a settled side. However, stand in goalkeeper Charlie Clausen would have been a doubt after being injured last weekend.”
Watchet’s next match is away to Ashcott tomorrow week.
Meanwhile, Minehead Reserves play premier division rivals Stogursey in the Taunton Saturday League’s Rowbarton Charity Cup at the Bridgwater College Academy this evening (Fri, 8p.m.).
