TAUNTON Town will look to put things right away to Farnborough tomorrow (3pm).

The Peacocks were hammered 4-0 at Farnborough back in March - their final fixture before the 2019/20 Southern League was terminated amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Taunton head of football Rob Dray will be desperate for an improved performance at the Easy As HGV Stadium this time around, against a side who have lost three and drawn one of their four league games so far.

“I watched them at Wimborne [on Tuesday night, with Farnborough losing 2-1], and they’re quite a different side now.

“I think we’ve changed for the better [since March], we’ll be well rested, and we’re ready for them.”

The Peacocks’ rest came courtesy of Tuesday night’s scheduled fixture at home to Salisbury being postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

"It's been a tough start for us," added Dray.

"We've covered a lot of mileage and played a couple of probable top six sides already, away from home.

"We're going to be playing Saturday-Tuesday in three of the next four weeks, so it was good to grab a rest week."

Taunton midfielder Lee Lucas is “pretty much there now”, having worked his way back to fitness following a foot injury, and Dray says his return will be “like a new signing, as he was arguably our best player in pre-season”.

Fellow midfielder Jake Mawford has joined Bridgwater Town on dual registration terms, while Jamie Price remains involved with the Taunton squad despite not having played so far this season.

Dray explained that Price's partner had just had a baby, meaning that the defender missed pre-season and has been playing catch-up, but the heavy match schedule has made it difficult for the team to train at the moment.
