BIDEFORD goal machine Jamie Densham just can't stop scoring for the Robins at the moment.The new signing scored his 11th goal in six games to grind out a hard-fought win away to Melksham Town on Saturday.Densham's top corner header from a Matt Downing cross came just seven minutes from time in a scrappy battle on a heavy pitch."It was pretty even stuff with very few clear cut chances for either team," club spokesperson Kevin Tyrell told the Gazette."The pitch was very tacky and both sides had a job to play fluent football in what turned out to be a real midfield battle."Although good running by Densham and fellow front-man Leon Hapgood helped take the pressure off the back four, recent signing John Routledge justified his move from Truro with a fine display in central defence.Tonight (Wednesday), the Robins are away to South West Peninsula side Holsworthy in the quarter-final of the St Luke's Bowl. Kick off is at 7.45pm. On Saturday, they travel to Bristol Manor Farm.Ilfracombe's recent good run of form came to an abrupt end at Marlborough park on Saturday, sloppy defending to blame for a disappointing 2-0 defeat against Hallen.It was the first time the Bluebirds have lost in the league since November last year. Hallen's early dominance was rewarded with two first-half goals. And despite efforts by striker Leon Taswell, Ilfracombe were unable to find a reply in the second 45.'Combe are at home to Melksham Town on Saturday.Yet another poor home performance meant there were no more league points gained this year for Barnstaple Town.Calne Town took a first half lead and looked comfortable for the rest of the half as Barum rarely troubled the visitor's goal.In the second half, Barnstaple applied more pressure and created several half chances that lacked the final finish.And while Barum pushed for a leveller, Calne broke at the other end to score their second goal of the game.Barum are away to Odd Down on Saturday before squaring up to Tiverton Town for a St Luke's Bowl quarter-final clash at Mill Road on Tuesday, kick-off 7.45pm.
