Wendron United will be aiming to make it three wins out of three for the season against St Austell when they face the Lilywhites at Poltair Park this weekend.

In their previous two meetings Wendron have prevailed on both occasions, winning 5-2 in the South West Peninsula League and 2-1 in the Cornwall Senior Cup.

The teams:

Just two points and four places separate the sides heading into this fixture as both sides look to build on recent victories. Wendron ended a run of three games without victory with an impressive 3-2 win over Dobwalls in their last game.

Dron are fifth in the table while St Austell sit in ninth.

St Austell haven't played a league match since November, 20 but on that occasion they also got the better of opposition higher up the table, defeating currently second placed Camelford 2-1 on their travels.

Speaking ahead of the match Wendron Manager Michael O'Neill said: "I am really wary of St Austell, I think they are a really good side. They try to play football the right way, Mark Smith has got them playing really nice football and I feel they are due to ignite at some point and go on a five/six/seven game run. But as soon as they get momentum they seem to just drop off or play a Camelford or a Falmouth just as their gaining momentum and that sets them back a little bit.

"Both times we have played them we have had to work really hard to get a result. They were winning 1-2 at half time the first time we played them and we had to have a look at ourselves. But we came out and played the best we had all season and won 5-2 in the end in what was a really strong second half performance.

"Then in the cup, it was a lot closer but it was the same again they looked to play the right way and they did find a few holes in our defence but they didn't take their chances when they were on top and if they would have done that then there was every chance those results could have been slightly different and conversely we did take the chances when they came to us and that changes the momentum of the game.

"The last two results do nothing but make me more determined to make sure we are prepared well."
