Bridgwater Town boss Rob Dray said he is freshening up the squad with the signing of Yeovil Town striker Rob Clowes.

The 19-year-old will join on loan for an initial one-month period and will hope to break Bridgwater's drought in front a goal - a record which sees just five goals in their last seven league outings.

Dray said: “Competition is always good within the team and hopefully this signing will freshen things up a bit.”

Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Hungerford increased Bridgwater's winless run to five matches but Dray said he was much more pleased with the way the side conducted themselves this week.

He said: “The effort levels were better this week and even though I don't think we deserved to win the game, I thought we should have got something out of it.

“We were so close at times to scoring but it's that bit of luck or something a bit special that we aren't getting.”

Bridgwater Town travel to Gosport Borough on Saturday but will be without captain Danny Wring, who will serve the first of his two-game suspension following his red card against Bideford.

Former Leicester, Millwall and Reading striker Steve Claridge will also feature in the match up front for Gosport and Dray said it will be a good experience for his players to play against him.

Speaking about the BBC football pundit, Dray added: “Some of our defenders will love to make their mark on him.

“It is also great for the boys to play against him because he is arguable one of the best goalscorers the country has produced in the last 20 years.”

Matt Pitcher (knee) and Pete Monks (hamstring) are doubts for Saturday's clash and Clowes could be set for his debut at the club. Kick-off is at 3pm.
