ENDEAVOUR and work rate displayed during Swindon Supermarine’s performance against Weymouth must be repeated if the club is to start achieving a level of consistency in Southern League Premier Division South, according to manager Lee Spalding.

Marine face their second home league test in four days tonight when welcoming Farnborough to the Webbswood Stadium (7.45pm).

Spencer Day’s outfit have endured mixed fortunes so far this season, winning and losing four games with two draws to position them three points short of the play-off frame.

While Supermarine’s draw against the table topping Terras on Saturday failed to lift Spalding’s troops out of the drop zone, Spalding admitted to sighting some green shoots of promise in his side’s ability moving forward.

“We’ve got to look to get three points against Farnborough,” said Spalding.

“The amount of effort that went into Saturday’s game (against Weymouth) was really good.

“We’ve got to do that week in week out now. The two games before Weymouth, I think we’ve been a little bit flat against teams that we think we should be defeating.

“The level of performance that we applied on Saturday must be applied every week, because if it isn’t then we aren’t going to get results.”

Wiltshire Senior Cup action also takes place this evening with five fixtures taking place.

Sam Collier’s Royal Wootton Bassett will be seeking to add to their impressive 3-1 Hellenic League victory over Reading City on Saturday when hosting Westbury United at the Gerrard Buxton Sports Ground.

Bassett were knocked out of the competition at the quarter final stage when they were defeated by eventual runners up Highworth Town – going two steps further this term will be firmly on the mind of Collier’s men.

Elsewhere, Chippenham Park will face a tough challenge when hosting step four club Highworth Town.

Jeff Roberts’ men will be keen to avoid this evening’s banana skin having earned a point in an entertaining 4-4 Southern league Division One South draw at Evesham United on Saturday.

Malmesbury Victoria will also take to the field – they host Amesbury Town following Saturday’s remarkable FA Vase win over Roman Glass St George.

Other ties include Calne Town welcoming Pewsey Vale while Downton host Laverstock and Ford.
