SWINDON Supermarine manager Dave Webb is keen to set the record straight against Paulton Rovers on Saturday when the two sides face off again in Southern League West.

Rovers overturned a two-goal deficit when they last visited the Webbswood Stadium back in September to send Marine crashing out of the FA Cup in a shock 3-2 defeat.

Webb says that agony is still raw in the memory and is keen put the result right in South Marston this weekend.

“It does add a bit more motivation and I will be looking for the players to show a reaction to that defeat,” said Webb.

“When you have got people banging on your door and you can hear them singing in the next dressing room, that was not a feeling I liked as a player and would always stay fresh in my mind.

“I have to look at it from a different perspective now and have got to make sure I pick the right players to win the game.

“Hopefully the players have still got that memory in their heads as it is still lodged with me.”

As well as their FA Cup success, Paulton sent another warning to Marine on Tuesday night by ending Yate Town’s eight-match unbeaten league run with an emphatic 4-0 win away from home.

“Yate have been the form team but they got beat 4-0 by Paulton. We know they are a good side, they are in a false position in the league,” said Webb.

“The league is throwing up some surprises every week and I think there is only one side who have really shown some consistency and that is Taunton and that is why they are top.”

Marine ended a run of four matches without a win in all competitions on Tuesday night themselves with a 4-2 success at home to Bishops Cleeve and are now up to seventh in the table, level on points with Salisbury in fifth.

Webb’s side have played fewer games than anyone else in the top 10 other than leaders Taunton Town so the Marine chief knows the possibilities that are ahead.

“It is tight and if you have got games in hand, you have got to win them – you have got to keep picking up points. If you win your games in hand, you will be in the top three but if you don’t, then you won’t be,” said Webb.

“It would be nice to put a little run together but we are going into what is always a difficult period in the lead-up to Christmas. We have got some tough games so it is going to be a challenge for us.

“We want to try to put a run of fixtures together where we don’t lose and make sure we are in the top six come Christmas.”

Zak Westlake returns from suspension this weekend, with Ryan Campbell also available for selection again.

Meanwhile, Ash Taylor underwent surgery on his foot on Wednesday and Webb hopes the central defender will be able to make his comeback early in the new year.
