WIMBORNE Town are wary of the threat a resurgent Yate Town pose when they welcome the Bluebells to New Cuthbury this weekend, according to boss Tim Sills.

Magpies are looking to bounce back from defeat at Bideford last time out, but face a Yate side growing in confidence after back-to-back league wins for the first time this campaign.

Six points in their last two fixtures have seen Yate rise up the Southern League Division One South table, with Sills believing his side have to be at their best to get anything from the game.

He told the Daily Echo: “We seem to come up against teams at the moment who are just finding some form.

“Yate really struggled to start this season. I think they won their last two, actually – won 4-1 for one last Saturday.

“So it's one of those where you might have looked at it and gone, ‘oh, you know, it would have been a good one to try and really get our confidence back up and, and put in a good performance.’

“We're going to have to do that because, we're playing a team that's turned it around a little bit of late and shown some form.

“But it’s nice to be back at home.

“We've had a couple of incredible crowds in the last couple of home games, and hopefully we can put on a show Saturday and get back to to where we should be.

“We've got a real competitive squad, and I'm sure there'll be lots of people itching to get their chance.”

November already seems like a key month for Magpies’ promotion push, with four league fixtures against teams currently in the top six.

Asked if it was important to take a win into a crucial month of games, Sills replied: “It's just I think it's more important that we always bounce back from defeat with a positive performance.

“That's exactly what we've got to do Saturday.

“That then gives us a bit of momentum going into teams that are probably all up there in the top five – then great.

“But you know, I think for us, we shouldn't fear anyone if we're up to our standards and we're playing as we should do.

“Because I feel like on our day than we are going to be able to beat anyone.

“So we just need to make sure that focus on Saturday and then everything gives us a bit of a run into November with a bit of a pace up then.

“It makes those games more exciting, but, it gives us a bit more confidence going into them."
