Sidmouth Town welcome back Tony Cox for the trip to Galmpton tomorrow (Saturday), writes Steve Birley.
Cox was injured in the 2-0 win over Axminster and missed last week’s 1-1 draw at Teignmouth.
His return is timely as the Vikings head for Galmpton without Andy Lord and ANDY Isaac who are both at a wedding whilst Nick Gingell has golfing commitments.
Galmpton have 15-goal Dan Rankin, the South West Peninsula League’s top scorer, in their ranks, but Vikings boss Paddy Thomas has a plan to stop the hit man adding to his impressive tally.
He said: “Alex Raistrick has been in great form so far this season and we’ll give him the job of looking to keep Rankin quiet. I have every confidence in him being able to do that.”
You may also want to watch:
Galmpton’s six league games so far this season have produced no fewer than 37 goals and Thomas is clear about one thing: “If we are as wasteful in front of goal at Galmpton as we were at Teignmouth then we may have a problem.”
Town are unbeaten away from Manstone Lane this term having won at Alphington and drawn at Teignmouth.
