This Wednesday, Lee Lashenko’s Bristol Manor Farm will be looking to bounce back from their 3-1 home defeat against Melksham Town at the weekend. Here is all the information you will need to know ahead of the farm’s midweek fixture in South Devon.
Despite Kyle Tooze’s exquisite volley midway through the first-half on Saturday, the Farm were well beaten by the better side – and will need to up their game when they travel to Willand tomorrow evening. The Farm will be without central defender Sam Boulton due to work commitments, but the rest of the first-team squad will be available for selection by Manager Lashenko.
Willand have made a strong start to the 2021/22 Southern League Division One South season, collecting six points (two wins) from their opening five matches in the division. The Farm defence will need to be cautious of Alfie Mouldon who scored a hat-trick in Willand’s 3-2 win over Slimbridge on Saturday.
