Withy bid to continue run against Saltash
The Premier Division of the South West Peninsula League is free of cup commitments this weekend.
New leaders Witheridge, who moved into pole position after a 7-0 midweek win at Bovey Tracey, can retain top spot when they host Saltash United at Edge Down Park.
Three successive victories shot Withy to the top of the table but they will be aware that Saltash, on their day, are capable of beating most teams in the premier.
Saltash will be hoping goalkeeper Tom Blackler will have recovered from a chest injury and full-back Stuart Clark from illness.

If Witheridge slip up, Ivybridge Town can go back to the top of the table with victory at home to Tavistock. The Bridgers have a doubt over striker Joe Truelove, who is still suffering from a stomach muscle injury.
Tavistock have Ian Rooke (groin) out of action but are pleased to have former Lambs Lee Blatchford, Jamie Blatchford and Dan Pethick all rejoining the club.
Third-placed Exmouth Town will be interested in other results as they are a point adrift of Witheridge and Ivybridge, and victory at St Austell could take them back to the top.
Plymouth Parkway are confident that prolific goalscorer Adam Carter will have signed in time for their trip to Newquay, where they will be looking to extend their 100 per cent league record.
The Bolitho Park outfit put in seven days notice of approach to Torpoint last Friday and Carter was not involved in the Tamarsiders' midweek game at Bodmin Town.
Parkway are also hopeful that goalkeeper Ben Elphick will have recovered from a knee injury in time to travel to Newquay.
Bodmin's 4-3 midweek victory over Torpoint took them within three points of the leading two clubs and the champions will be expected to take their unbeaten league run to nine games when they travel to Cullompton Rangers.
Cully have not been having the best of seasons, but Tuesday's 1-0 victory at home to Elmore was their second of the season.
Camelford entertain Bovey Tracey with both clubs still smarting from heavy home defeats on Tuesday. Liskeard Athletic will be looking to gain their first points of the season when they host Torpoint.
Godolphin Atlantic went through their five September games undefeated and they will want to begin October in the same manner when they welcome Launceston, while Elmore entertain Falmouth Town at Horsdon Park to complete the fixture list.
