Title will not be won today, says Gilbert
Game of the day in the Carlsberg South West Peninsula League has to be the Premier Division clash at Priory Park between league leaders Bodmin Town and second-placed Plymouth Parkway.
Bodmin hold a one-point advantage over their visitors with both sides having played 18 league games but both managers are convinced this game will not decide the title.
"The league won't be decided today although it's a big game for both clubs," said Bodmin player-manager Darren Gilbert.
"Parkway are playing very well at the moment and we are aware that it will be a very tough game," admitted Gilbert who has a full-strength squad from which to select.

His opposite number, Wayne Hillson, said: "Yes, it's a big game but the result is not going to determine the final outcome as the season is only at the halfway point.
"We are aware that victory would put us back on top of the league and the lads are confident and really looking forward to the challenge."
Hillson also has a full-strength squad and is hoping to add a midfielder.
St Blazey travel to in-form Witheridge without Martin Sleeman, Dave Barker and goalkeeper Dave Painter but manager Bobby Oaten includes new signing Ben Randas.
Torpoint Athletic have lost the services of striker Josh Grant, who has returned the US, but they do have their new signing from Liskeard Gavin Welsh in their squad for the visit of Falmouth Town.
It is possible this will be the last game for Falmouth striker Matt Drummond as he is expected to join Newquay.
One player Newquay will not have in their squad for their trip to Saltash is Sam Farrant who has signed for the Ashes and will be in their squad to face his former club.
Ashes boss Stuart Dudley also has Steve Sargison and Ross Saint returning but he will be without the banned Gavin Coulton (one match) and Richard Maddison (second game of three).
Liverton have lost the services of Liam Ford, who has joined East Division side Galmpton, as they prepare for their trip to Camelford. Cullompton could open up a nine-point gap over next-to-bottom visitors Liskeard.
Ivybridge Town include new signing Jordan Pearce in the squad that entertains third-placed Launceston.
Tavistock have striker Ian Holmes returning to give the Lambs a full-strength squad to select from when they travel to bottom club Penzance.
Elburton hope to have Lewis Daw and Levi Landricombe back for the trip to St Austell.
