LYME Regis boss Gerard Hitchcock is wary of an Exmouth Town Seconds side that could be an unpredictable quantity to assess in the Devon & Exeter Premier Division.

The Seasiders head into the encounter on Saturday having had a week break due to their match at the weekend being postponed due to the weather.

However, Lyme won their previous match 10-0 against Okehampton Argyle and Hitchcock is grateful that the break came after a good victory.

Speaking about their opponents, Hitchcock said: “They are down there but I think a lot depends on whether their first team play because I do not think their first team played last week and they won 5-0 (against Topsham Town) which is a decent enough result. They are obviously capable of putting together a decent result when needed.”

However, Hitchcock hopes his side can push on from the victory, but is concerned with the weather ahead of the kick-off on Saturday.

Hitchcock said: “Hopefully we just get to push on from where we were the week before and go from there.

“If we had lost the last game then it is obviously a bit of hard work because people want to put things right the following Saturday and it gives you a bit more time to dwell on it.

“But we had a decent result, we will have a good training session and then hope that the weather is not going to be as bad as it says it is going to be.”

Sam Jones is unavailable for the Seasiders but that is the only unavailability, Declan Ellis has recovered from a long-term injury and played in the third team’s 6-4 loss to Perry Street on Saturday.
