Exmouth Town and Budleigh Salterton both have matches on Good Friday morning.

Exmouth Town – now just two wins away from possible being crowned South West Peninsula League Premier Division champions, play their penultimate fixture when they go to Cullompton Rangers.

Town simply .must' win to keep their title hopes alive and kick-off at Edenvale Park, Cullompton is 11am.

When the sides met at Southern Road on Boxing Day morning, Town suffered a 1-0 defeat, going down to a let, late goal and that was the last time that Kevin Hill's team lost an SWP League game. Their final match of the campaign is next Saturday (April 27) when Town go to Bodmin Town.

Whilst Town do battle at Cully, title rivals Tavistock are in action against fourth placed Saltash United – could Good Friday be a pivotal day in the destiny of this season's title race?

Budleigh Salterton also have an 11am kick-off for their South West Peninsula League Eastern Division East Devon derby at home to Sidmouth Town.

Like Exmouth Town, Budleigh also met their Good Friday opponents back on Boxing Day when Sidmouth won the game 4-2 at their Manstone Lane home.
