Folkestone Invicta are out for revenge when they travel to leaders Peacehaven & Telscombe on Saturday.

The clash between the two form teams in Ryman League Division 1 South offers Invicta the chance to make amends for their 3-2 defeat in the reverse fixture back in September.

Peacehaven were the last visiting team to win a league game at the Fullicks Stadium and manager Neil Cugley said: "You don’t want to lose to any side twice. It hurts your pride a little bit.

"They beat us at our place. It was a close game but we want to go there and put the record straight.

"Hopefully, we can show how much we’ve improved since then because we’re a better side than when they came here.

"They’re doing well and top of the league because they’re consistent. If you don’t look forward to these sort of games, you’ve got to be a bit disappointed.

"Sometimes you want to be tested, to see how far you’ve come."
