BRIDGWATER Town aim to build on last weekend's FA Cup victory over Hallen, as they travel to Chipping Sodbury Town for their next Toolstation Western League fixture tomorrow (ko 3pm).

Dave Thorne's goal handed the Robins a 1-0 victory on Saturday – their first win of the season at the third attempt.

Co-manager Dave Pearse told the Mercury: “Expectations are high with the players we’ve brought in, so I’m disappointed to only have one point on the board in the league.

"It should be six, with the chances we’ve had in the two games [against Brislington and Cribbs].

“Hopefully this win gives us the confidence to go on a run in the league.”

Regarding tomorrow's opponents, Pearse added: “They’re a young team, and they lost their manager just before the season started, but they’ll try and make it hard for us.

“We’re playing catch-up in the league now, but hopefully our strikers [Steve Murray and Jack Taylor] can start scoring and get on a roll.”


MIDDLEZOY Rovers were left frustrated on Wednesday night, as they were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Ilminster Town in the Premier Division of the Uhlsport Somerset County League.

Joe Wilkinson put Zoy ahead, but Ilminster equalised just before half-time and stood firm to secure a point.

Next up for Zoy is an away trip to Worle, tomorrow (3pm).

In Division 1 of the County League, Bridgwater Town Reserves – beaten 5-2 by Wells City Reserves last weekend – host Timsbury Athletic tomorrow.

Division 2 side Middlezoy Rovers Reserves, who came from behind to win 3-2 at Hutton despite having 10 men last Saturday, are at home to Castle Cary tomorrow.
