Upottery still have 13 of their Macron League top flight matches to play in the current campaign and no fewer than 11 of them are to be played at their Glebe Park home.

Such has been the problems with the weather and a seemingly ever-increasing cancellation list, that Upottery have only played four home games – three in their league campaign – at Glebe Park since September!

Upottery have played just twice since their last win, which was a 2-1 Glebe Park victory over Okehampton Argyle on Saturday, January 13.

Such is the congestion now facing the Upottery players that they will now face five games in nine early May days!

The season-long target for Upottery boss Dan Prettejohn has been to get his side into a top six finish. In their remaining schedule they meet the current top three, but they also face home and away games with two of the bottom three and no fewer than nine of their last 13 games are against sides currently in the bottom half of the table.

The full list of remaining games for Upottery is:

March 31 H Exwick Villa

April 2 A Seaton Town

April 7 H Hatherleigh

April 14 H Witheridge

April 17 H Seaton

April 21 H Heavitree

April 26 H Exmouth Town Reserves

May 5 H Cronies

May 7 A Hatherleigh

May 9 H Elmore

May 11 H Feniton

May 14 H Newton St Cyres
