Penzance get an early opportunity to bounce back from Saturday’s disappointing home defeat at the hands of Launceston when Wadebridge Town visit Penlee Park tonight for another league fixture (kick off 7.30pm). “Tonight will be another tough task against a quality Wadebridge outfit, “ predicts Magpies Manager Ashley Waters. “After the disappointment of Saturday we have to move on quickly and get ourselves right. We need to show character and commitment, and more important we need a reaction. The players should need no motivation - they have to deliver”.

After bravely deputising in goal on Saturday, Kam Collins is freed to return to his familiar midfield role by the re-signing of former keeper Leigh Isaacs. Under-16s captain Charlie Palmer rejoins the squad in place of Ollie Butler. Also named are Archie Reynolds, Liam Andrew, Mark Vercesi, Alfie Turner, James Butler, Charlie Willis, Jacon Trudgeon, Tyler Tonkin (captain), Darryl Richards, Ashley Mead, Ewan Trevains, Adam Lewis, Michael Fitchett and Gareth Ireson-Ward. 

Wadebridge are having another good season and currently sit fifth in the table. They beat the Magpies 3-0 in most recent meeting of the two teams, at Bodieve Park in early November. However, Penzance were victorious in a Cornwall Senior Cup tie between the two teams at Penlee Park back in September. Bridgers boss Paul Rowe will select from Rob Rosevear, Tom Harris, Sam Hepworth, Brad Rowe, Steve Simmonds, Lewis Webber, Chris Reski, James Hamson, Matt Lloyd, Morgan Vallejo, Jacob Smale, Jacob Rowe, Lyle Johnson, Jude Tripconey, Haiden Chapman, Sam Gerken (captain), Noah Holmes and Sam Wickins.

Admission is £5 (concessions £3) and the gates open at around 6.45pm. Drinks and refreshments, including hot pasties, will be available from the Black & White Cafe inside the ground. The matchday programme – the Magpie Review – will also be on sale for £1.50.
