Bristol Manor Farm vs Tavistock – 25/02/23, 3pm KO.
Manor Farm return to the BS3 Services Stadium as they host Tavistock, and Jack Davies looks back on recent results to bring you this preview.
Farm’s recent unbeaten streak was stopped by Bideford’s narrow win in midweek, but Farm will still be buoyed by their recent form, particularly at home, where they’ve only lost once in the 2023.
Tavistock have had a very mixed bag of results since the turn of the year but still find themselves sitting comfortably in the final play-off spot, albeit having played more games than most of the division.
Interestingly, the Lambs have drawn the joint least most games in the league and despite being 5th, have only lost two games fewer than bottom placed Slimbridge. Both sides have free scoring strikers in Farm’s Owen Howe and Tavistock’s Liam Prynn and Farm will be boosted further by their very impressive 3-1 win in the reverse fixture at the very start of this month.
