BRIDGWATER Town will be hoping for a repeat of their last meeting with Bridport, as they aim to get back to winning ways tomorrow at Fairfax Park (3pm).

The Robins thumped their hosts 6-0 in the reverse fixture, but have sunk to ninth in the Western League Premier Division standings after back-to-back defeats over the Christmas period.

Bridport sit 19th in the table, and have not played since December 14 due to a host of postponements amid the wet weather.

Reflecting on his side's recent poor form, Bridgwater co-manager Dave Pearse said: “Me and [fellow co-manager] Karl Baggaley have to go back to the drawing board and look at which players are here for the long haul.

“Promotion is miles away - you can’t lose five games before the New Year.

“We have 19 players available, but we have a big decision to make and we may need to let some senior players go.

“Promotion’s off the cards, so do you look to the young players and build for the future?

“I think we need a squad of 16 going forward.”

On the match with Bridport, Pearse added: "Whatever team we pick, we need a big reaction on Saturday - the players have got to earn the shirt."

One positive for the Robins is the return of central midfielder Mike Duffy.

Pearse said: “He went to Middlezoy, but decided it wasn’t for him and he asked to come back.

“He brings energy and 100 per cent commitment.”

Middlezoy sit second in the Somerset County League Premier Division after a 1-0 win over Keynsham Town Reserves last time out - Tom Brown getting the only goal of the game.

Tomorrow sees them visit third-placed Fry Club (2pm).
