The Peacocks will look to build on their Bank Holiday win at Tiverton when they entertain Basingstoke Town at the Viridor Stadium tomorrow afternoon (1st September), kick-off 3.00pm.

The 3-1 victory at Ladysmead on Monday elevated Town into second place on goal difference from five other clubs all on ten points. One of those sides are Basingstoke who come to Somerset with the same playing record as the Peacocks, having won three fixtures to date including their two most recent outings, a convincing away win at Frome followed by a home success over Gosport on Monday. Similarly they have lost just the one league game, a 2-1 reverse to Poole Town a fortnight ago.  The Peacocks will be aiming for a more convincing performance in front of their own fans tomorrow, being well aware they cannot continue to get away with the defensive frailties they showed in their last home game against Hendon. Normal service was resumed at Tiverton so Town will be focusing on a similar result to take them into a two week break for Southern League Cup and FA Cup duties. The two sides last met way back on 10 September 1983 when Basingstoke won an FA Trophy tie 1-0 at the Viridor whilst they also crossed paths back in the Southern League Division One South in the late 1970’s.

Town name an unchanged squad from the Tiverton clash with international clearance still having not come through from the FA for Douglas Camilo despite the club chasing. Manager Leigh Robinson is missing for tomorrow’s game as he celebrates getting married meaning Michael Meaker and Rob Dray will deputise in his absence.

A reminder to all supporters that starting from tomorrow’s game there will be a £1 charge to park in the main car park for all first team games.
