Divisional Preview

BetVictor Southern League Premier Division South leaders Tiverton Town make the relatively short trip to Dorset on Saturday to take on mid-table Wimborne Town.

The Yellows head Wimborne`s neighbours Poole Town and relegated Truro City by a single point having lost just once to date – a 3-1 derby defeat at Taunton Town back on August Bank Holiday Monday.

The Magpies will be looking to get back to winning ways after losing 3-1 at Merthyr Town last weekend.

Poole Town are at home to bottom-markers Beaconsfield Town, who have actually picked up of late, having lost just one of their last five league and cup games.

Truro faces a tricky test at Earlsmead against ninth-placed Harrow Borough but will be buoyed after their 3-0 win at Yate Town last time out.

Chesham United, in fourth, trail Tivvy by just two points and the Generals will be keen to lose no more ground when they travel to Privett Park to play Gosport Borough, having suffered a 2-1 defeat at Swindon Supermarine last Saturday.

Taunton Town occupies the final top five slot and will be looking for back-to-back wins in the league as they host Hayes & Yeading United at the Viridor Stadium.

At the other end of the table, Hendon, with just one win from eight games in the league to date, takes on sixth-placed Salisbury at the Silver Jubilee with Steve Claridge`s men determined to recover from last weekend`s 4-2 FA Cup defeat at the Ray Mac against Isthmian Premier side Margate.
