CHARD Town hit the road again on Saturday, as they travel to mid table Almondsbury UWE in the First Division of the Toolstation Western League (3pm). 

Chard reserves are without a game on Saturday, so there is no match at Zembard Lane.

Chard will be without two of their strikers as Alex Stafie is suspended and Steve Friend has work commitments, but Andy Holmes should be fit. 

Almondsbury is another tough place to go, but Chard go there in good form and manager Paul Down was enthusing over the performance at Cadbury Heath last Saturday, which saw the Robins overcome their Premier Division opponents 3-0 after extra-time.

He said: “They all played their part in a great result for the club. 

“To score three goals in extra time is a testament to their fitness and character. 

“All three substitutes made an impact, with the highlight being Friend’s solo effort.” 

ILMINSTER Town are on home turf at the Archie Gooch Pavilion taking on Shirehampton, who sit one place above the Blues in seventh place, with the match kicking off at 2.30pm.

The Blues reserves head to Westexe Park Rangers in Division Five of the Macron Devon & Exeter League.

COMBE St Nicholas, who enjoyed an impressive win over Burnham United last weekend, are looking to follow that up as they host Minehead.
