Ottery St Mary travel to Starcross Generals on Saturday (February 27) and boss Dave Fairweather has concerns that the Generals played last Saturday and got thumped!

Awliscombe defeated them 9-1 and Fairweather says; “When I saw that result I must admit it surprised me and the first thoughts that came to me were about complacency from my lads as and when they picked up on that score. We must not fall into that trap. This season many teams seem to be struggling at times for players and they may well have been the case for Starcross last Saturday.”

The Otters are missing skipper James Gosney and the influential Matty Daly. However, their loss is eased with the availability of Ben Rushton.

Fairweather says: “We got there to do a job, get three more points and we’ll do that if we play to our ability.”

The Ottery Reserves will look to build on last Saturday’s marvellous point from the 2-2 draw at Cranbrook when they entertain a Chagford Reserve side that sits fourth bottom, just three places better off than the Otters.

Connor Lovering is available this weekend and club boss Fairweather says: “Connor is going to be with the second team this weekend and he will certainly help them out. As I have said before I am very keen on the concept of us being all in this together and it’s a matter of fact that as soon as our game is done and dusted at Starcross I will be in touch with Washbrook Meadow to see how the second team fared.”
