Steve Jupp, BA11's Club Historian, previews tomorrow's county clash, as the Robins look to get one over the current holders.
Tuesday night brings together the Robins and the Romans at Twerton Park for what has now become their annual clash in the Somerset Premier Cup.
Although two divisions apart, this will be the Somerset rivals SIXTH meeting in little over two years and the previous five have all gone the way of the National League South side, the latest being a pre-season friendly (2-0) at Badgers Hill back in July.
Tormentor-in-chief has been striker Cody Cooke, finding the net in all five encounters and scoring NINE in total... surely this man deserves a rest, just for one game?
Cup holders Bath (they beat Paulton 4-1 in the final at Weston-super-Mare), currently lie fourth in the table and, since a narrow defeat at Torquay at the beginning of November, have been on a decent run, winning three and drawing two, including a share of the spoils in a 2-2 stalemate at Farnborough on Saturday.
Frome fans will be hoping it's third time lucky after 2-1 semi-final defeats in the last two campaigns and may take heart from the fact that none other than Worthing recorded a brace of 2-0 triumphs over The Romans last month. The Robins' previous visit to Twerton Park in the County Cup some forty years ago ended in a famous 1-0 success thanks to a Steve Walkey strike.
Jerry Gill and Danny Greaves will be sure to shuffle their squads in what is a hectic period for both clubs and who knows, after the shoot-out drama in the Trophy a few short days ago, could penalties decide once more?
