Bridgwater and Albion return to South West One (West ) action on Saturday when they travel to West Devon to take on Okehampton where they face another tough match.

Hosts Okehampton currently top the table with 90 points from their 22 matches, 18 of which have been won, while Albion are fourth with 78 from the same number of games, having triumphed in 14 of them.
The hosts are unbeaten on their own turf this season, but they have been run close and in their last game managed to squeeze home 26-24 to St Ives, while earlier in the season they beat Newent, who are third in the table 15-12.
When the two sides met at College Way back in November, the Albion looked to be well placed when they lead 16-0 at half time. However after the interval Okehampton came out and scored 61 to run out comfortable winners, so the visitors know they are in for a tough encounter.
However Geoff Sluman’s boys have already won on the road at second placed Launceston and know that on their day they are capable of beating any team in the league.
Albion have lost their last two fixtures narrowly away at Newent and home to Petherton so after a week off they will be keen to try to get back to winning ways, but it will demand an impresssive all round perfmance if they are to succeed.
