Baffins return to PO3 aiming for back-to-back league victories with the visit of Cowes Sports.

The Wessex Premier Division contest - which kicks-off at 7:30pm - will be the first league match at the PMC Stadium since the PO3 Derby back in October.


Since that fixture, Baffins have endured a five-match run of away matches, picking up eight points in the process, with the only defeat coming at Hamble Club.


Saturday saw the longest trip of the campaign as Danny Thompson's side ventured to the Isle of Portland, and came away with a comfortable 3-1 victory; courtsey of goals from Steve Ramsey, Jason Parish and Tom Vincent's tenth goal of the campaign.


Tuesday night's opponents, Cowes Sports, are six points adrift from the relegation zone in the Wessex Premier, but travel across the Solent full of confidence after a creditable point at Bemerton Heath Harlequins on Saturday.


It was the second draw in a row for the third-placed side at Moon Park, after Parish's second-half penalty cancelled out Greg Peel's spot-kick earlier in the fixture on Saturday 26 November.


The Yachtsmen's last victory in league action came on 4 October with a midweek victory over Laverstock & Ford at Westwood Park. Two stoppage-time goals from John McKie earned Cowes three points in a dramatic closing to the match.


Last campaign, Rovers ran out 7-1 winners against the Islanders under the lights in PO3. Miles Everett netted a hat-trick as Rudi Blankson's brace was added to by Oscar Johnson and Alex Przespolewski in the rout.


You can watch Baffins take on Cowes Sports at the PMC Stadium on Tuesday 6 December (7:30pm kick-off). Tickets are priced £6 adults and £4 concessions, with under-16s admitted free.
