Sidmouth Town face a busy week ahead as they play three away games in six days.

The Vikings are at Plymstock United tomorrow (April 20) and then go to Alphington on Tuesday night before next Friday night’s visit to Crediton United.

When the met the South Devon outfit at home on December 1, the visitors edged a 2-1 victory, that remains one of eight out of the eleven home defeats this term for the Vikings that have been by a single goal!

Victory at Plymstock would give Town a real chance of avoiding the South West Peninsula League, Eastern Division wooden spoon this term.

They travel down the Devon Expressway trailing Plymstock by ten points, having played two games fewer!

What is against the Vikings is that they are yet to register a victory home or away in the league this season.

However, Town are currently on their longest unbeaten run of the season with three successive draws and have been mighty close in recent outings to bagging their much yearned first success. Could that duck be broken tomorrow?

After the three away games the side then have three at home to complete their campaign.

They host Axminster Town on Tuesday, April 30, then receive a visit from Exeter Civil Service on Saturday, May 4, and a week later bring the curtain down on the league season with the visit of Okehampton.
