BRIDGWATER Town player-manager Dave Pearse is hoping his side can end a positive season with a win as they travel to Cadbury Heath in their season finale tomorrow.

Town saw a lengthy unbeaten run come to an end on Wednesday night as they were beaten 1-0 at leaders Willand Rovers, but Pearse was full of praise for his players.

“We were brilliant,” the striker said.

“It was physical, as it always is when we play each other, and it was a good advert for the league.

“We matched them and should have been two up at half-time.

“We didn’t take our chances and I thought if they were going to score it would be from a set piece, and so it proved.

“It comes down to that bit of luck – when you’re at the top it tends to go with you.

“But everyone was fantastic and their management were very complimentary at the end of the game.

“We have been on a hell of a run – unbeaten since December 15 – and now I want us to end the season with a win.

“I don’t want to end with a draw or a defeat and I hope we won’t have an ‘end of season’ mentality about us.

“Tomorrow can be the start of another unbeaten run. If we start next season as well as we have ended this one we can be right up there.

“We have secured fourth and I would like to see us end as close to third as possible – I think we deserve that.”

Pearse also hailed his players’ performances in the Easter weekend wins over Wellington (4-1) and Westbury United (2-0).

“We were outstanding. Everyone gave 100% and we were still hungry,” Pearse said.

“We kept our standards high and thoroughly deserved the wins.”
