Axminster Town entertain Honiton Town on Wednesday (October 16) in their second - and final - meeting of the South West Peninsula League Premier East campaign.

Axminster Town: Its just one win in the last six for the Tigers - that a 3-1 league win at Tiger Way over Elmore on October 2nd since when they have lost 3-0 at home to Torridgeside, shared four goals with hosts Torrington and, last time out - this past Saturday, lost 3-2 at Stoke Gabriel.

Honiton Town head to Tiger Way looking to secure a third successive win after they won 5-1 at Plymouth Marjons on Saturday and had previously beaten Elmore 3-2 at Mountbatten Park. Before the back-to-back wins, Honiton Town were without a win in four - suffering three straight defeats after their splendid penalty shoot-out win at Southern League Barnstaple Town in a Devon St Lukes Bowls tie.
