Ilfracombe Town will look to build on an last week's encouraging performance against Larkhall Athletic at Bishop Sutton tomorrow.
Combe have an opportunity to climb away from the lower reaches of the Toolstation Western League Premier Division with a crucial game against the bottom side.
With seven defeats from their first nine games, Sutton are unrecognisable from the team which won the title last year.
Last Saturday, Ilfracombe became the first team to take a point off leaders Larkhall when Stan Paxton's goal secured a 1-1 draw at Marlborough Park.
It has been an inconsistent start to the season for the Bluebirds with a number of players stepping up to the Western League for the first time but the Larkhall game showed they have the potential to compete.
Ilfracombe will take heart from their previous meeting with Bishop Sutton when goals from Steve Holland and Shaun Copp earned a rousing 2-1 win over the Somerset side in January.
