Budleigh Salterton entertain Axminster Town this coming Saturday (3pm).
Neither side saw action last weekend as waterlogged pitches once again decimated the Eastern Division programme.
The Robins and the Tigers will meeting again seven days later at Sector Lane. That trip across East Devon for Danny Williams team will, be their first away game for ten weeks!
The Robins last played away in a league game back on November 10 when they won 2-1 at Plymstock United.
Before that is the meeting at Greenway Lane which has not been the happiest of hunting grounds for the Robins this season.
In nine Greenway Lane games to date they have won four, drawn two and lost three and so have dropped 13 points on their own pitch.
Axminster Town’s away record this season mirrors the home form of Budleigh! T
hey have won at Appledore and Alphington, each time by a single goal margin, drawn at Okehampton, but lost at Civil Service, University, Exmouth Town and Teignmouth Town.
Budleigh head into Saturday’s game sitting third in the table, one place and three points better off than Axminster Town who have played two games fewer.
After Saturday’s game Budleigh will have 12 more league games to negotiate.
