TOPSHAM Town were left kicking their heels on Saturday afternoon when their game at Hatherleigh fell foul of a waterlogged North Devon surface.

Premier Division leaders Thorverton did manage to get a game in - they stage done of only two top flight games to be played , and their 5-2 thumping of struggling Feniton took them five points clear of the Tops who sit second having played two games fewer.

This weekend could be interesting in terms of the Tops bid to, at the very least, achieve a top two finish, as they host bottom of the table Otterton whilst Thorverton face a tricky looking home encounter with Clyst Valley.

When the Tops met Otterton earlier in the season it turned into a rout with Danny Carpenter's men winning 8-0 and so the biggest problem for the Coronation Field boss this weekend may well be complacency.

However that is something he will not allow to become involved.

Carpenter says: "I am not one to look back, yes we turned them over earlier I the season but I am, only interested in the old principle of taking each game on its merits and at 3pm we start level. I have a very honest bunch of players and am sure that they are sensible enough not to harbour any thoughts of complacency. Otterton are fighting for their Premier lives and when a side is in that sort of battle they are capable of throwing up an unexpected performance and result.
