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.
