TAUNTON Town manager Leigh Robinson says his team are starting to show their potential ahead of Saturday’s home match with Beaconsfield Town in the FA Trophy second qualifying round (ko 3pm).

The Peacocks went on an 11-game winning run from November last year, and they’re currently 11 games unbeaten after overcoming Didcot Town and Barnstaple Town in the last week, scoring eight goals in the process.

They lost influential centre-back Owen Irish to local rivals Tiverton Town last week, but two wins have ensured that fans’ attention is back on the pitch.

The boss said: “We’re in a great place, with confidence and spirit.

“Pierce Mitchell is in unbelievable form, and Dan Sullivan and Matt Wright are scoring goals.”

For Saturday’s game - which is worth £4,000 to the winners - the Peacocks welcome back Ben Adelsbury after he was suspended last weekend, while Chris McGrath is steadily regaining fitness after playing twice in the week. Ross Staley is, however, absent as he is attending a wedding.

Their next opponents, Beaconsfield, are currently seventh in Evo-Stik Southern League East, meaning they play at the equivalent regional level to Taunton.

While their home record is unremarkable, they have won five out of six away league games, so clearly pose a threat.

Robinson added: “They have clearly found a recipe for playing away from home.

“They’re around the play-off positions in their league, so we approach it as we would one against Swindon Supermarine or Evesham United in our division.

“We’ve had a little look at them, we’ll respect them, but the onus is on us to get the job done at home and avoid a replay.”

With the game being on November 11, the club will mark Remembrance Day prior to kick-off.

Supporters are asked to arrive at the Viridor Stadium before 2.45pm to join the commemoration.

Elsewhere this weekend, Bishops Lydeard host mid-table Warminster Town in the Toolstation Western League First Division, while Staplegrove welcome Ilminster Town in the Somerset County League Premier/First Division Cup.
