The Farm fell to a 1-0 defeat at Bideford last time out, and will be looking to bounce back this Saturday against Highworth Town at The Creek. Here is all the match preview, ticket, and travel information for the match.
The Farm will have striker Ben Bament back in contention for Saturday’s match following a three match suspension. The former Toolstation Western Premier Division winner was given a straight red card at Plymouth Parkway for a foul midway through the first half.
Earlier this week, we caught up with Manager Lee Lashenko ahead of the match.
“Ben Bament’s suspension is now over, and we’re delighted to welcome Ben back to first-team action,” said Lashenko.
“Hopefully we will also have a couple of others back for the match leaving us in good contention for Saturday.”

The two sides previously met on Hallows Eve last October, with the Farmers coming away from the match 1-2 winners. Owen Howe and Mike Bryant’s headers was enough to seal all three points, despite a late goal from the home side.
The Worthians currently sit in 12th position with 32 points. Their season records for the season shows 10W, 2D and 12L. Most notably, they defeated Evesham United 5-1 just a few weeks prior to our match in October.
