TAUNTON Town’s focus shifts back to their league promotion bid after a disappointing FA Cup exit to Tavistock on Tuesday.

After the teams drew 2-2 on Saturday, they did it all again at the Viridor Stadium, but Tavistock emerged worthy winners.

Peacocks manager Leigh Robinson pointed to mistakes as being the key over the two games, and his side haven't had too long to dwell on the disappointment - they travel to face Kidlington on Saturday (ko 3pm).

“We said when we were winning that there would be a bump in the road,” the boss added.

“We’ll judge the players on their reaction in the next game – we will find out a lot about their mentality.”

Taunton will be without Joe Charles and Chris McGrath (injured) on Saturday, as well as Les Afful (suspended) and Ben Palmer (at a wedding).

Kidlington have moved across from the Southern League Central division this year, and Robinson expects another tough test.

“We’ve never been there but we know they are a talented, athletic side.

“They have gifted players who we’re familiar with.

“There are no easy away games in the division – it will be a long journey, and a real challenge.”

The Peacocks will hope to return from the 240-mile round trip with three more points.
