Appledore hoping to start the month with a win

APPLEDORE lost further ground to Liverton United with a goalless draw at home to Exeter University on Saturday.

Promotion rivals Stoke Gabriel and Teignmouth both closed the gap at the top of the Division One East table with wins at the weekend.

The Fishermen remain third but are now 15 points adrift of Liverton, who won 2-0 at Galmpton Gents.

Appledore, without a win since the beginning of March, face a vital trip to second-placed Budleigh Salterton on Saturday.
