TAUNTON Town must pick themselves up from a last-minute loss to Weymouth on Tuesday, as they go to Kings Langley tomorrow (ko 3pm).

Their Hertfordshire hosts finished 21st in last season’s Premier Division, and have lost both matches played so far this campaign.

Peacocks manager Leigh Robinson said: “They’re a bit of an unknown, and it’s a long journey, which isn’t ideal in August.

“We put a lot of physical and mental energy into the Weymouth game, but if we can replicate what we did on Saturday and Tuesday this week, we'll win a lot of games this season.”

Robinson added: “The players were absolutely devastated to lose the game and the unbeaten run.

“But while we’re disappointed, looking at it in the long-term, we’ve played well on Saturday and Tuesday, and gone toe-to-toe with a great side."

Taunton are likely to be without centre-back Keith Emmerson for tomorrow's match, after he came off with a calf injury at half time against Weymouth.

Robinson is, however, hopeful of having him back for the Bank Holiday weekend matches against Hendon (home) and Tiverton Town (away).
