TAUNTON Town host Yate Town at the Viridor Stadium tonight (ko 7.45pm), looking for a seventh league win out of eight to start the season.

The Peacocks regained top spot in the Evo-Stik Southern League West standings with a 3-1 win at Bishops Cleeve on Saturday - new striker Omar Simpson scoring twice.

Yate are currently second bottom in the table, as they are yet to pick up a league win this campaign.

Injured quartet Joe Charles, Owen Irish, Chris McGrath and Matt Villis are all still sidelined, while Ben Palmer is also a doubt with a groin strain.

Thankfully, given all those defensive injuries, new centre-back Matt Preece is set for his home debut tonight - although striker Dan Sullivan, signed last week from Tavistock, is not available until next month.

Tonight's round of matches also pits Salisbury against Swindon Supermarine - both teams who are vying for promotion alongside Taunton.

The Peacocks are back at home this coming Saturday, as they entertain ninth-placed North Leigh (ko 3pm).
