When things are not going your way, the situation often only worsens, writes SpursTom.

Injury woes struck Budleigh Salterton Reserves in their latest game with no fewer than five players going off unable to continue!

Playing against a Feniton side many pundits expect to be challenging for honours this season the Robins gave a good account of themselves, especially Man of the Match stand-in goalkeeper Leigh Jones.

A battling first half display saw Feniton kept out until just before the break giving the visitors a single goal interval advantage.

Having already used one substitute in the first half, two more enforced changes were made within twelve minutes of the restart. Feniton, marshalled by the vastly experience Phil Everett, were finding space in abundance as they rattled in six second half goals.

Glovesman Jones joined the wounded, followed pretty soon by another teammate limping out of the action. The Robins were left to play out the final ten minutes with just nine men, and so the final score of 7-0 to Feniton is testament to a tremendous effort by the home team.
