With THE top five teams in Premier having applied for Peninsula League next season, Sidmouth Town manager Paul Ashford believes that it will be imperative to win the league to make the next step.

But, at the moment, he is not worried about what lies ahead, other than the 10 matches remaining in the Premier League.

Ironically, Sidmouth had no match last week, but from Saturday’s match at home to Clyst Valley, face six matches in 13 days.

“There are a lot of points to play for,” Ashford said. “But we are in a good place. I have full confidence in the players and we are not in fear of losing. What happens, happens and the table at the end of the season will reflect the season as a whole. There is no pressure on us,the players are exactly where we want them to be.”

Supporters will be welcome at Manstone Lane (3pm ko). Clyst Valley have made late progress in the table and drew 2-2 with Seaton Town midweek.

●Ottery St Mary are away to Teignmouth tomorrow and away to Axminster Town next Friday.
