There is more cup action at the Cygnet Health Care Stadium tomorrow evening when the Peacocks welcome Odd Down in the 1st Round of the Somerset Premier Cup, ko 7.45pm.

Town have previously won this competition on five occasions, the last time being in the 2016-17 campaign when they beat Weston-super-Mare 4-2 in the Final. Last season however they were dumped out at the first hurdle by Western Leaguers Ashton & Backwell United who won through on penalties following a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes. Tomorrow’s visitors Odd Down also reside in the Western League, currently sitting in 13th place in Division One with 17 points from 13 fixtures played. Their recent form has been variable, with their four most recent League outings resulting in a draw, a 5-0 drubbing of Radstock Town and two defeats including a 2-0 reverse at Shirehampton on Saturday while they have also progressed in the FA Vase after beating Newton Abbot Spurs on penalties. The Peacocks played the Bath club on numerous occasions during their Western League days but rarely cross paths these days apart from the Premier Cup.

After three tough home games in the past 10 days, Town rest the central defensive trio of Nick Grimes, Dan Ball and Jake Wannell for tomorrow’s tie but the remainder of the squad will all be on duty, allowing several players to gain important match time.
