Budleigh Salterton have an East Devon derby on Saturday when they travel to Axminster Town.

When the pair met at Greenway Lane on October 9, it was the Robins who banked the points thanks to a 2-0 victory.

The Tigers have won just one of their nine league games this season at their temporary home of Colyton School.

In contrast the Robins away record this term is very good. They have beaten just three times on the road, suffering a 3-1 reversal at Exwick Villa and single goal defeats at Teignmouth and Galmpton, the most recent being the 4-3 loss at Galmpton on October 12.

Since that defeat in South Devon Budleigh have drawn at Appledore and won handsomely at Liverton and Totnes and Dartington.

The Robins head for the Axminster game looking to return to action for the first time since their December 14, 2-1 win over Crediton United.

Axminster Town have won just once in 13 outings since an August 24, 3-1 win over Alphington, that a December 7, 3-1 home triumph over University.
