The Devon All-Whites:
Willand have made an impressive start to the season, largely thanks to a tough defence and keeper George Burton. New signing Dan Koite has already impressed his new fans and forward Josh Baker is enjoyable a productive season in the goals. Willand also boast former Farm hero, Dean Stamp.
Manor Farm are really beginning to roll and goals are coming from all angles. Captian Jake Gosling has 4 goals already this season and his set peice deliveries have provided goals for defender Josh Ford, who is on a run of scoring in each of his last 3 away games. Top scorer Owen Howe is back following suspension and keeper Ben John has been in great form of late.
Both sides are almost opposites in terms of recent form. Willand started the season excellently but are without a win in 3 league games. Farm took until their 8th game to get their first win but have since won 3 in a row and with games in hand over most of the teams above, Farm are on the hunt for the top half. Willand still sit 9th despite their recent woes and will go into this with every chance of a positive result.
