Taunton in the clear despite defeat


TAUNTON Town's unbeaten home record in Southern Premier South will be at stake when they play Dorchester Town on Saturday.

Taunton are still six points clear of the field - despite New Year Day's 3-1 defeat at Merthyr - and have a better goal difference than any other side which could prove crucial at the end of the season.
"We're still in a great position," said Taunton's head of football Rob Dray. "We were second best to Merthyr all over the park.
"It's a tight division with every side capable of beating another on their day.
"Every side dropped points over the Christmas and New Year which shows you how tough it is."
Defender Shane White is ruled out with a cheekbone injury, but Ryan Brett (knee) and Pierce Mitchell (dead leg) are both likely to be fit after missing the Merthyr game.
"We're a prize scalp now for every team and we have to get used to that," added Dray who has been in charge since September. "This is where mental toughness and resilience will play a crucial role."
Taunton will be chasing a double, having beaten Dorchester 2-1 away in September.
