Exmouth Town will look to knock off another Southern League Division One South play-off chasing team, as they travel to the GlenMex Stadium this Saturday to take on Bashley.

Exmouth are coming off the back of a hard-fought 1-0 against Tavistock at the Circle of the Care Community Stadium, and are hoping to win consecutive games for the first time in 2023.

THE OPPOSITION

Bashley are currently sat just one position behind last week’s opponents in sixth place, and Matt Tubbs’ side are on the hunt for a play-off place to end the season with a chance at promotion.

Since a superb 5-0 win against Wimborne Town, The Bash have had a low-scoring run, with their last six league games ending either 1-0 or 1-1, with three wins, two draws and one defeat against top of the league AFC Totton.

This shows that they are a tough side to beat, but Exmouth did come out victorious last time the two sides met, earning a brilliant 3-2 home victory, with goals from Aarron Denny, Levi Landricombe and Jordan Harris securing a fantastic win.

PRE-MATCH CHAT

Speaking shortly after the Tavistock game, Exmouth Town manager Kevin Hill said: “It’ll be hard, they are good at home and it was hard-fought when we beat them at home, we played well.

We’ve had the last couple of games and we can go there, and if we get a result, brilliant, but all I ever ask from the lads is that they give 110%, and they’ve done that in the last two games.

That’s the old Exmouth back.”
