Bideford aim to make up for 'bad day at the office' against Ivybridge
BIDEFORD'S previous meeting with tomorrow's opponents Ivybridge marked a watershed moment in their Tribute Western Counties (west) promotion bid.

Bideford have only lost once since, to leaders St Austell, and are nine points behind the Cornish side with a game in hand.
Kevin Booth, the Bideford coach, said: "It was one of those games, we can put it down to a bad day at the office.

"We hadn't played that well at the beginning of the season and I got a lot off my chest after that game – and the guys responded.
"It will be a different game for them coming up to Bideford where we are very well supported."
Bideford have shuffled their pack for the 2.30pm kick-off.
Dave Evans is unavailable, so Richard Norman moves from lock to blind-side flanker. Harvey Brown steps back into the second row and Paul Thomas returns at prop.
