Town head up the M5 for away game number eight in their Toolstation Western League campaign.

Kevin Hill's men, who are enjoying a superb first season at a higher level, have won five of their previous seven away games and suffered just two defeats - both to single goals on visits to Parkway and Keynsham.

Town went down 1-0 in Plymouth in a midweek game, just four days after they had won 1-0 at Bitton in their first away game of the new campaign.

There were then wins at Cribbs (4-0) and Wellington (2-0) before what was, at the time, something of a surprise, a 1-0 loss at Keynsham where Town came unstuck on the artificial surface.

It was straight back to emphatic winning ways in their next away game, a 5-1 success at Cadbury Heath in Mid November and their most recent away game prior to the trip to Street was a December 14, 3-1 win at Bridport.

Our gallery of pictures that supports this article come from the camera of GERRY HUNT who took in the Boxing Day game at Southern Road that saw Town defeat Buckland Athletic 4-2.
