NON LEAGUE #TouchlineTuesday preview

south west sports news black & white logoTonight’s FA Cup replay between Sean Joyce’s Southern League Bideford AFC and Darren Gilbert’s SW Peninsula League Bodmin Town AFC is arguably the top non-League fixture of the night.

Jake Ash’s seventh minute stoppage time leveller set up tonight’s eagerly-anticipated rematch at the Sports Ground following a 1-1 draw at Priory Park.

Tonight’s winners travel to Tottenham on Saturday, to play Isthmian League Haringey Borough.

The next biggest non-League game on our South West radar is at Weymouth, where Mark Molesley’s 10th place Terras take on 12th placed Basingstoke in Southern Prem.

Fourth placed Tiverton Town – who beat Basingstoke then Weymouth before a 2-0 defeat at Kings Lynn – seek to get back on track at ninth placed Merthyr Town. It’s a tough ask as for Martyn Rogers' Yellows as Merthyr seek a home double following Saturday’s 2-1 win over Royston.

Unbeaten Southern League West leaders Taunton Town defend their superb seven-match league start at home to a Yate Town side seeking their first league win.

The only other unbeaten Southern West side, Dave Webb’s fourth placed Swindon Supermarine, put their six-match start on the line in a top of the table clash at second placed Salisbury, whose sole league defeat was 2-1 at North Leigh a month ago. Wiltshire derbies don't come much better.
