LYMPSTONE had no game at the weekend but their bid to beat the drop in Senior Two received a huge boost with the results from elsewhere in the section.The three sides immediately around them in the table all lost. Basement dwellers Sidmouth went down 6-0 whilst Exmouth Amateurs lost 2-1 at home to Barnstaple Town and Exeter Civil Service, who the Lympets face on Saturday, lost 2-0 at Morchard Bishop.Lympstone boss George Webster says of Saturday's meeting with Civil Service at Cliff Fields: "It's a massive game, there's no escaping it. We also have to play them up at their place too and so the six points on offer could go an awful long way to determining which Division we will be playing our football in next season. I am sure the team will need little motivating for such a big game as Saturday offers."The Senior Two table gives further hope that Lympstone can accrue sufficient points over their last eight games to escape the drop. They go into Saturday's game just five points adrift of 8th placed Beacon Knights and are only two more shy of 7th placed Honiton Town who, like the Lympets, have completed 16 of their matches.After Saturday, Webster's men face home games with Barnstaple, Heavitree and Newtown and they travel to Beacon Knights, Heavitree, Exeter Civil Service and then one team who currently sit below them, Sidmouth Town.
