Sidmouth Town are in home action tomorrow (Saturday) when they entertain Budleigh Salterton in a Devon Premier Cup tie first round tie.

The prize for the winners is a trip to North Devon for a second round tie at Braunton on Saturday, November 5.

The Vikings were without a game last Saturday, which was a shame given that their last outing – the Saturday, October 1, 4-2 win at Liverton – a result that extended the Town unbeaten run to three games following a Monday night 6-0 mauling at Crediton United in early September.

At Manstone Lane this season the Vikings have put together a tidy run and are unbeaten at their headquarters since a single goal loss to Alphington back on August 20.

Budleigh’s current form is not good – they went down 5-0 at home to Torridgeside on Wednesday night – that a second successive game without scoring as they lost the previous outing 1-0 to Axminster Town.

So far this league season, the Robins have lost 4-1 at St Martins and won 3-1 at Galmpton in their only two away league games.

Town boss Josh Stunell says: “Current form goes out of the window in cup ties - especially derby ties - and so we will need to be at our best. It ought to be a cracking game.”
