Budleigh set for Exwick test

13:55 23 January 2014

Budleigh Salterton will hoping their current period of inactivity ends this weekend when they are due to host Exwick Villa at Greenway Lane (3pm).

The Exeter side are no longer sitting top of the Eastern Division; they are currently two points behind leaders Teignmouth Town who have played a game more.

The SWP League Eastern Division has been hit hard by the weather recently.

In a five week period since December 7, just ten matches have been played.

The Robins have not played since a 2-1 home win over Crediton United back on December 14.

When they travelled into Exeter to meet Exwick Villa back in early September the Robins were beaten 3-1.

They go into Saturday’s game on a run of four successive victories stretching back to their last defeat which was a 3-0 reversal at home to Stoke Gabriel on November 23.

Budleigh sit seventh in the Eastern Division and Saturday’s game marks the start of the second half of their league campaign.

After the Exwick game they will have 14 more league matches to negotiate this season.
