Honiton Town are in South West Peninsula League action tonight (Wednesday) when they make the short trip to Greenway Lane, Budleigh Salterton (7.30pm).

The Hippos will be attempting to land their first away win of the league season – at the sixth time of asking having taken just a single point from their five away league outings so far.

The Hippos have already played Budleigh once in the league this term, losing the evening kick-off back in August, 3-1.

To date, Town have lost Saturday away games at St Martins (4-1) and Liverton (1-0), but they did bag a Saturday matchday draw with a 1-1 on their visit to Brixham. They have so far played two away midweek games, losing 2-1 at Axminster Town and 3-1 at Crediton United.

Budleigh’s home record is not good – they have lost three of their four home matches so far with their only success a 3-1 winover Crediton United in their last home game, on September 20.
