LYME Regis go into the weekend looking to continue their challenge in the Devon & Exeter Division One table.

Last week, Lyme secured a 3-0 victory over Colyton, but despite its comfortable appearance, manager Robin Townsend wasn’t entirely convinced by his side’s start to the game.

He said: “We didn’t start as well on Saturday as the scoreline suggests. If they’d have scored one of their early chances it could have been a different game.

“But we’re pretty confident going into Saturday, like last week we know what we’ve got to do.”

Lyme’s opponents this week, Willand Rovers Seconds, find themselves sitting second from bottom in the league, and Townsend is confident that his side can get a result.

He said: “They’ve been struggling a little bit and lost 5-1 last Saturday, so we just have to see what kind of side we’ll come up against.

“We know what we’ve got to do and how many games we’ve got to win.

“It was pretty important that we won on Saturday to keep us in the hunt.

“You need to have confidence that you can get something from the game otherwise there’s no point showing up.

“I’m hoping that with the confidence in the side we can win our remaining games and that’s what we’ll aim to do.”

Townsend confirmed that this week his side will be without Darren Lock (twisted ankle), Fred Parsons (glandular fever) and Mark Bailey (broken toe).
