HEREFORD Pegasus' new signing Paul Jones will line-up against his former side this weekend when they go head-to-head with Wellington.

It is the first Hellenic League Division One West meeting of the two sides this season, with both having good starts to their campaigns.

"It's the first derby on our new pitch so we're looking forward to it," said Pegasus joint manager Mick Panniers.

"We have been playing well and are getting quite a good squad together.

"It's a pity we had a break as we had won five or six on the bounce.

"They (Wellington) are a good side and we beat them in the cup (6-3), but they had players missing. Both clubs will be up there or there about.

"Everybody wants to win a local derby and we will be giving it our all, but it could go either way."

Jones left Wellington and signed for Hereford Pegasus at the end of September.

"Paul might get a bit of stick but he wanted to come and play for us and we were glad to have him," added Panniers.

"With his goals we are playing well. Before he came into the squad we weren't getting goals from out wide. Hopefully he will bring us 15 or 20 goals this season."

Meanwhile Wellington have beat Herefordshire rivals Westfields and Kington in cup competitions during recent weeks.

Their manager Gary Stevens is looking for consistent performances from his side.

"We will be looking for a performance," said Stevens.

"We won't get the result if we don't put in the performance.

"We have seen them playing and we know what to expect. We have just got to go out and play better than what we did before.

"I'm quite pleased with the last couple of games. It's all about trying to get consistency if you are going to finish up there."

Stevens says that his side are aware of the threat of former player Jones.

He added: "We know all about Paul (Jones) and he is a good player.

"We have seen him in training more than enough so we know what to expect from him."
