Bodmin Town's FA Vase involvement gives the chasing pack a chance to close the gap on the Carlsberg South West Peninsula League leaders.

Plymouth Parkway currently occupy second spot, on goal difference from Elburton Villa, but they are nine points adrift with a game in hand.

Today they travel to struggling Liskeard Athletic, who have not won in 16 games.

Parkway await late fitness tests on John Heveran's knee and Dan Griffiths hamstring but Warren Daw misses the game due to suspension.
