CORSHAM Town’s trip to Oldland Abbotonians will be the only Toolstation League Division One fixture this weekend – and manager Justin Flowers wants to lift his squad to fifth in the table by earning three points.

The rest of Corsham’s step six rivals will play in the first round of the FA Vase – with Flowers’ men receiving a bye in the competition opener

Victory against Gloucestershire-based Oldland will place Corsham on nine points after five games – and put them three points short of table-topping Calne Town.

Albeit the majority of the league would have a game in hand, Flowers insists picking up three points on Saturday will serve his side a great confidence boost.

“This weekend is a good opportunity for us to make some progress up the table,” said Flowers.

“Yes, we would’ve played a game more than everyone else. But a win can strengthen our grip on the league – we have a good squad and hope we can complete the job in front of us.

“Right now, I’m not looking to add any players.

“Our biggest problem at the moment is leaving players out – we have too many players capable of playing in the first team.

“I want to give everyone enough game time to challenge for a regular spot. It’s up to the players to fight for their position.”

Flowers’ comments were voiced following Town’s 4-2 win against Bristol Telephones last Saturday.

Josh Bright and Leigh Rogers both grabbed braces as Corsham bagged their second league victory of the season.

Flowers added: “We’ve had a couple of bad results, so we’re happy with the result and performance.

“We were keen to get back to winning ways after entering the season with big expectations.

“It might be that we took our eyes off the ball. We must understand that we need to work hard and not just turn up – we’ve been guilty of that in our first few games.

“It’s always been a tough league, teams you expect to beat can nick points off of you if you don’t concentrate."

Elsewhere, Calne remained at the top of the table following a 2-0 win at home to Bishop Sutton.

Joshua Hard and Stuart Windsor scored for the Lilywhites in the second half.

Warminster Town thrashed Portishead Town 5-2 thanks to doubles from James Vincent and Charlie Walton and one from Jack Miluk.

Finally, Devizes Town lost 5-2 at Wincanton Town, with Matthew Russell and Jamie Wallen on target.
