WATCHET Town will be looking to get over the disappointment of losing at home last weekend when they play away to Yatton and Cleeve United in Division One of the Uhlsport Somerset County Football League this afternoon (Sat).
Watchet would have moved up to join second-placed Staplegrove on 19 points if they had beaten Nailsea & Tickenham Reserves but instead they went down 2-1. Even so they are still only four points behind the leaders Saltford.
Yatton and Cleeve are down in ninth spot, but they have yet to lose and have played only five matches, winning three and drawing two.
Watchet will again be without goalkeeper Adam Bishop (groin strain), and Charley Clausen will continue in goal.
"Charley is a decent goalkeeper but he is an outfield player and that's where he wants to play," said Watchet's club spokesman Nick Sully. "We've a few injury niggles so we'll have to see what the situation is. . Yatton haven't played on their pitch for three weeks so we're wondering what state it will be in."
Watchet stay seventh in the table but only five points separate the top eight teams which makes it a very competitive division. Stockwood Green remain bottom, still without a victory in 11 matches.
Meanwhile Minehead, whose away game against Yatton and Cleeve was postponed last weekend because of a waterlogged pitch, are home to Westfield who lost 3-0 at Watchet only a fortnight ago. Minehead are lying tenth in Division One and Westfield one place below them.
Meanwhile, Porlock play away to Bridgwater & Albion in the Premier Division of the Taunton Saturday League while Minehead Reserves are away to Stogursey.
In the Somerset Sunday League, AFC Dunster are home to Trinity Rangers, Butlins entertain Taunton North and Williton are away to Tone Youth - all in the Jim Jowett Cup.
There is plenty of action in the Taunton Youth, Somerset Women's and Somerset Girls Leagues this weekend.
