Exmouth Town will be hoping they have resolved the issues with their floodlights as they look to welcome Bodmin Town to Southern Road this Saturday (3pm), writes John Dibsdall.

Town had to postpone their match against Plymouth Parkway last Saturday as two of the floodlight lamps had been dislodged by high winds from their holding brackets and were hanging solely by a single electricity cable.

The contractors who had installed the lights in the summer sent a cherry picker to the ground but this quickly got stuck in the soft ground and had to be winched out. The SWPL agreed with Town that it would be dangerous for both players and spectators for the match to go ahead and allowed the postponement with the match being rearranged for March 7.

Bodmin are currently enjoying another successful season and are currently third in the Premier Division just three points off top spot and in Adam Carter have the league’s top scorer with twenty eight goals to his name.

They also have former Exeter City favourite Kevin Miller as their goalkeeper.

Not only will Town be looking for their first win of 2015 but also their first goals. Whilst they have now had three matches postponed they have also featured in two goalless draws so whilst the defence has remained rock solid Town will be hoping new signings Toby Gosling, Danny Burwood and Joe Curtis, signed from Tiverton Town, can provide the necessary firepower to kick start their season.
