MATCH PREVIEW: Mousehole (H)

Bristol Manor Farm host Mousehole under the lights at the newly named NL services stadium, writes Jack Davies.

Farm are yet to win in the league this season but have only lost the once and are ever improving as that search for those first three points. It’s the FA Cup where we have seen the best of the hosts, winning all three ties including a very impressive away win at Bishop’s Cleeve on Saturday. Striker Owen Brain now has seven goals already this season but Farm have been sharing the goals around, already having nine different goalscorers so far this season. The latest of those falling to defender Ollie Woodhouse, who’s backed up his fine performances with his first competitive goal.

Mousehole celebrated their centenary year in 2022 with a Western League title and have adapted very well to their first season at this level. The Devon side are unbeaten in their first four, seeing two draws backed up by two wins. In both recent stalemates, the Seagulls came within minutes of winning and will be key to ensure no more points slip through the net. A wealth of attacking quality includes striker Jack Bray-Evans and Hayden Turner, the latter having four goals in his last three games. The visitors also tasted cup success at the weekend, winning a 5-3 thriller against Bashley.
