Boss fancies chances against visiting Welton Rovers
DAWLISH Town boss Adam Kerswell admits he fancies the Seasiders' chances of beating Welton Rovers at Sandy Lane tomorrow.
Kerswell's men are on a seven-match unbeaten run, and with Welton ailing in 17th place and going into this weekend on the back of a 4-1 defeat to Willand Rovers, the Dawlish boss is confident his side will extend their impressive streak.
The manager said: "To be honest I do fancy our chances. No disrespect to Welton, but we are playing really well, we are on a good unbeaten run and if we play how we can then I think we are a match for anyone in the league.
"If we avoid defeat that will be eight games unbeaten, and to do that from where we were is pretty good.
"Our improved form is for a variety of reasons. We are scoring a lot more goals now, we have got balance in the side and we can attack from a variety of positions."
Kerswell says he has a full squad to choose from tomorrow, apart from Liam McAuley, who is away. Owen Williams is expected to take his place in the squad.
Willand Rovers manager Clive Jones is unsure what to expect from visitors Hallen tomorrow after their manager left to join Wellington this week.
Gary Domone – the former Taunton boss – has left second-bottom Hallen to take over the vacant post at bottom side Wellington.
Willand have been in sparkling form away from Silver Street lately, but their troubles at home and the upheaval at Hallen leaves Jones unsure as to how the game will play out.
"Their manager's gone to Wellington and that can have two effects on a team," Jones said.
"That's changed things slightly, but it's all about us as far as I'm concerned. We have scored 14 goals in our last three away games and it's about time we showed our supporters at home what we can do.
"We went up to Hallen when they were bottom and were lucky to come away with a 1-1 draw, so we've got a record to put straight there."
Willand will have to do without Shane Kingston tomorrow as he is away on the stag do of Wellington player Simon Ingram. Jones hopes captain Rob Norrish will have recovered from the back injury that kept him out of the midweek win at Welton.
In the First Division, Elmore go to Devizes Town looking to bounce back from last weekend's 4-0 home defeat by Calne.
The Eagles will have to do without left-back Matt Webb and midfielder David Day, but boss Simon Harder is hopeful his team can get a result against the club one place above them in the table.
"I was away for last weekend's match, but apparently we played some good football and were unlucky," he said.
"It's a long way for us to go up to Devizes, but we travel with ambitions of getting the three points. We won comfortably up there last year, although they've had two or three new managers since then."
