Two games in three days for promotion-chasing Stoke
STOKE GABRIEL'S pursuit of runaway leaders Exmouth Town in Division One East continues when they entertain Sidmouth Town.
Stoke (39pts) are up to fourth in the table behind Town (54), Newton Abbot Spurs (43) and Budleigh Salterton (42), but have two games in hand on Exmouth, three on Spurs and five on the Robins.
Plymstock United were dismantled 5-0 last time out with goals from Tim Porter, Dave Worthington, Nick Milton, Ollie Critchlow and finally Ben Towler.
Stoke have Sunday off to recover before a Monday night trip to Crediton United (7.30pm).

Newton Abbot Spurs have no game this Saturday. They don't return to the fray until Good Friday when they host Teignmouth at the Marsh Road Recreation Ground.
TEIGNMOUTH player-manager Geoff Breslan wants more of the same away to Exeter University – hardly surprising after the 4-1 win over Okehampton Argyle last time out.
Okes stunned the Teigns with a goal in the first minute, but from then on it was one-way traffic.
Breslan lashed home from 20 yards for 1-1 and four minutes before half time Matt Eaves netted to make it 2-1.
Teignmouth pulled away in the second half with two goals in five minutes. Stephen Shrubb bagged the first with Eaves netting his second and the team's fourth.
Teignmouth sit sixth in the table going into the trip to the University. Breslan's problem appears to be who to take?
Ian Wilkinson, Adam Hill, Nick Moyse, Steve Mardell and Sam Chapman missed the victory over Okehampton, but they are all available for this week's game," said Breslan.
"We will be looking to carry on our improved form of late and will be going there full of confidence, but also aware the University away is always a hard place to get anything.
"The lads were excellent last week and I want the same committed performance."
GALMPTON United boss Steve Parkin will be without suspended pair Robbie Bowler and Jon Potter for the visit of Crediton.
The Greens were washed out at home to leaders Exmouth Town last Saturday, which means they have not played since a 2-2 draw with Exeter University nearly two weeks ago.
Crediton aren't having a great time just one off the bottom of the table, but that is no reason to take them lightly according to Greens' boss Steve Parkin.
"It is going to be a tough game, but if we play our football we will be fine," said Parkin.
"I only hope our game is on as the pitch is struggling and the weather forecast isn't good."
