The Peacocks will hope to get their BetVictor Southern League campaign back on track when they welcome Wimborne Town to the Cygnet Health Care Stadium tomorrow afternoon (18th January), kick-off 3.00pm.

Town will want to quickly get last Saturday’s result at Yate out of their system, their third defeat from four games since Boxing Day but despite that poor run, they still remain in fifth place in the table. However with both Salisbury and Poole Town capable of overtaking the Peacocks with their games in hand, the focus will be very much on securing the three points tomorrow. The Magpies currently sit in 13th spot, with 29 points from 24 games, being unbeaten in their last three matches which includes a draw at Hartley Wintney sandwiching home wins over Poole and then Blackfield & Langley last weekend.

The two sides have already met on three occasions this season, Town winning the reverse league fixture 3-0 at Cuthbury in August through goals from Matt Wright and two from Andrew Neal. The Peacocks returned to Dorset in October for an FA Trophy tie and after Neal and Harry Kite had earnt a replay, the job was completed at the Cygnet Health Care Stadium with a 4-1 win thanks to strikes from Neal, Lewis Hall, Wright and Ollie Chamberlain.

The squad tomorrow sees the return of Dan Sullivan after serving a one game suspension and Nick Grimes following his nose injury while new signing Ross Staley is also included. Head of Football Rob Dray remarked:” Tomorrow again is a crucial point in the season. The performance is at the forefront of my thoughts because if we perform to a large percentage of what we are capable of then we will get something from the game. Last week was a disappointment but it’s important we focus on what we can affect so we turn up and are hard to beat. This group rarely lets me down and I have faith in all of us with half a season left to be where we should be.”
